How about a nice cup of sewage?

A poll by the Sydney Morning Herald/ACNielsen taken at the weekend shows that 78 per cent of Australians (80 per cent in NSW) would support the introduction of recycled water.

1142 respondents were told that one option to increase water supplies was "to treat sewage and other waste water", that the water would be "safe for drinking and other household purposes" and asked whether they would support or oppose recycled water to supplement supplies.

No wonder they don’t worry about it they already do drink sewage, it comes in cans with labels like XXXX and Fosters.

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.
