I started the blog because I have always been a TV shouter. The kind of person who shouts at the news wanting interviewers to ask better questions. I also have a deep loathing of most politicians having been around them for almost my entire life. Generally I have a low regard for them for any measure you care to mention, intelligence, integrity, honesty, generosity. Mostly they are liars, rooters, venal and greedy of no use to man or beast.

My blogging is nasty, but it is honest. If you don’t like Whaleoil then tough, I blog for me and me alone.

Blogging has been immensely important to helping me deal with my depression, ultimately it has cost me as it is one of the reasons why Fidelity Life unilaterally disregarded their contract with me. Their rationale was that because I could write 5 posts a day then I could work. Unfortunately for me they chose to ignore their contractual obligations and they chose to cause me 3 additional depressive episodes. These will of course be discussed in court and in the open-ness of this blog. If they think that just because something is before the courts that I will remain silent then I have two words for them that should give them warning “Name Suppression”.

So where to from here? I have no idea. I have plenty of ideas, am having a few discussions but am open to other ideas too. So feel free to comment.

Thank you to all my supporters, fans and loyal readers, and thank you too to all the fuckwits that like to anonymously comment abusing my mental health and weight, it is their vitriol that fires my will to blog. Thanks also to the wankers that send me nasty emails, they say more about you than they do about me and again stoke the fires of my will to out scum.

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.
