Now this is free speech

Awesome revenge.

A husband who humiliated a millionaire City broker who had an affair with his wife by exposing graphic details of the relationship on Twitter and in internet blogs walked free from court yesterday, claiming a “victory for free speech”.

His lawyer had the best ever comment though.

Mr Puddick’s barrister, Michael Wolkind QC, argued that his client had a right to expose Mr Haynes’s behaviour.

“His websites are his scream of frustration and even his scream of pain,” he told the court.’’

Mr Wolkind added: “He wouldn’t take it lying down – unlike, sadly, his wife did for years in her relationship with Tim Haynes.”

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.
