Oh the desperation: Bill English gets a Snapchat account

In an apparent effort to engage with millennial voters the Prime Minister has created a Snapchat account.

The social media app – which allows users to send temporary messages – is especially popular among younger people.

Prime Minister English has already shared a story with other users posting a message from a National Party conference with the Young Nats.

Bill English trying to appeal to younger voters is a fairly pointless exercise.  The man is drier than a box of crackers.

He said in his first Snapchat message, “This is where the action is going to be for the next three months of political campaigning,” so views the app as another way to reach voters.

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.
