Howard has balls, Clark just whimpers

John Howard has gone where Clark and Mallard feared to tread, he has canned the Australian Cricket tour of Zimbabwe. 

[quote]The Mugabe regime is behaving like the Gestapo towards its political opponents. The living standards in the country are probably the lowest of any in the world, you have an absolutely unbelievable rate of inflation.

I have no doubt that if this tour goes ahead it will be an enormous boost to this grubby dictator.

"We do have power over people's passports, We have made our position very clear. We've written to Cricket Australia, I think Cricket Australia does understand our position.[/quote]

By making this a government ban he has effectively immunised the ACB from any fine. 

A man of principle, whereas Clark and Mallard are mere cowards for not doing the same when they had the opportunity.

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.
