English takes another in the chook as Hamish Walker replaces Todd Barclay in Clutha-Southland

Hamish Walker has been chosen as National’s candidate for the Clutha-Southland seat.

Walker, a former Dunedin South National candidate, was one of three vying for the position left open by current MP Todd Barclay. The others were former Queenstown Lakes District Mayor Vanessa van Uden and Southland District councillor Nick Perham.

Bill and the Evil Six really didn’t get any further.

That’s Barclay out of harm’s way, and Bill still facing questions about his late night texting.   All of which he has deleted from his parliamentary phone.

Will be interesting to see if they pop up somewhere.  These things tend to happen during elections.

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.  And 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 that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

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