Again the government ignores the populace. We want criminals behind steel bars not behind local bars. If you do the crime you do the time.

Under this government if you do the crime you get a slap up feed, heated flooring, flat panel TV's and if you are good and quiet and don't give the guards any hassles you get to have time off for the laborious penance that prison has become.

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.
