Abusive, rude and wrong

Trevor Mallard has lost the plot. He defamed Erin Leigh under the protection of parliamentary privilege, conducted a smear campaign and defamed Dr Bryce Edwards, he has defamed a mate of mine and now he is hurling abuse all over Twitter at people he doesn’t agree with.

Last night on Twitter he really nutted off at someone who wasn’t happy at the stance Labour was taking on the Police surveillance bill. Trevor Mallard accused him of being drunk, then being a “slow person“, then a “SoB“.

This man is unfit for public office, to treat a concerned voter like this shows utter contempt for democracy.

He should resign. Phil Goff needs to act with his out of control campaign strategist.

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.
