Senior Doctor flip the proverbial bird at Hodgson.

[quote]Mr Brown said problems in the sector had followed the pattern set by Mr Hodgson's leadership.

"His behaviour and inertia in response to advice and alarm from many groups of doctors is mind-boggling," Mr Brown said.

Colleges of medicine, the Medical Association and others had all made representations on issues.

"Only to hear him claim the opposite in the House, or consign them to the scrapheap of no response augmented by inaction. Is the disconnect deliberate, or dithering, or disdain?"[/quote]

Wow, you can't get much more critical than that except to use expletives.

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.
