Candidate makes mockery of Name Suppression laws

If you ever wanted a poster case for the abolition of name suppression then the case of the candidate who shall not be named is it.

Ridiculously he represents a party which has come out strongly saying they support the changes proposed by the government regarding removing easy access to name suppression.

Even more ridiculously his billboards and campaign signs are still up around the area, surely that in itself is a breach of name suppression according to Judge Harvey’s wide-ranging judgement against me. They are pieces of the puzzle.

The utter joke of all of this is that this guy is likely to be returned tomorrow and be a local bard candidate. I wonder how he will be sworn in or even if his result could be announced if his name is suppressed.

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.
