Woman politicians without children don’t make the grade

Kiwiblog comments

You can tell how worried Labour are that they will lose Hutt South, by how nasty Trevor Mallard is getting on Twitter about Chris Bishop. But his latest tweet was a step too far, and saw him delete it and apologise for it.

…Trevor is saying that you are privileged if you don’t have kids. As one tweeter responded, that means he is accusing Helen Clark of having been privileged for not having kids.

This was not a random tweet. Trevor has been going on about Virginia having children, and Chris being privileged for some weeks on Facebook.

Now if a National MP made some comment about a Labour MP being privileged for not having had children (yet – Chris is only in his early 30s), it would be major news.

Trevor’s time is up.  He really needs to pack it in.  But he doesn’t have a life outside of Labour so he’s hanging on for dear life.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
