Jacinda Ardern and the Hand that rocks the cradle

I spoke earlier of Jacinda Ardern desperately needing someone like Heather Simpson if she is to survive in the job.  So who is really running the Labour party right now?  We all know it isn’t Ardern.  

Ardern is on record as not wanting to be Prime Minister.  With last night’s poll at 37%, that may very well be a possibility now.

What will she do if Winston does decide to go with Labour?   Give the PM role to Winston?

Or will we see yet another Labour leadership change?

Now that the pipe dream of a change of government is more likely than ever, it is time Jacinda Ardern lets her voters know:   Will she stick around and be Prime Minister?

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.
