    Insight: Politics Podcast with Cam Slater – Episode 7

    A week is a long time in politics and this past week has certainly shown that. Last Monday the devastating Newshub/Reid Research poll dropped that proved to be the catalyst for a rapid coup against Simon Bridges and Paula Bennett. On Thursday the 1News/Colmar Brunton finished him off. I’ll analyse how those two polls led to the coup and how the coup was handled, including the dishonesty of two media commentators. Then I’ll attempt to map out National’s path to victory, if you can even use such a term. Finally, I’ll reveal a bit of background skullduggery that we have had to battle for over six years. I’m Cam Slater, and this is Insight: Politics.

    The King is Dead, Long Live the King

    Blaming Simon Bridges for his party's dreadful polling at the end of a global pandemic is as unfair as it is unreasonable, but relentless negative media coverage finally brought about his demise. Jacinda Ardern's meteoric rise in the polls, an expression of gratitude from the public...

    Muller Could Be a Safe Pair of Hands

    George I recall when I was a few months into my marriage my beloved passed the comment that she never expected to end up with someone like me. My response was to parrot her by admitting that I too, never expected to end...

    Bridges Has Been Shafted
