He should have

I reckon he should have said it:

A judge has refused to disqualify himself from a child sex case after allegations he had said “all paedophiles… should be put on an island and starved to death“.

District Court Judge Michael Finnane this afternoon rejected the suggestion he had made the remarks to the accused man’s solicitor at a social function six months ago.

“I am being asked to disqualify myself, not because I expressed any opinion about [the accused] … but because I expressed intemperate but unquestioned views – if [the solicitor] Greg Walsh is correct – in which I said I advocated illegal exile, torture and murder of paedophiles, something that I deny doing.”

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.
