Find and Replace

Most word processors have a really useful feature, “find and replace”.

We could use that feature on this article from The Telegraph about Ed Miliband, and replace him with Phil Goff:

Easy one first. The best afternoon at conference was spent over tea with Eleanor, friend and fellow Hackney Tory. I wrote about Eleanor’s response to Ed Miliband in the paper on Thursday: she told me that she felt “sorry for him”. I know what she meant, and I bet you do, too.
We have looked at Mr Miliband, and we can tell we’re looking at a basically decent guy. I’d trust him to be my doctor or bank manager, but for some intuitive, rather than processed, reason, we know he will not be prime minister. His cover has been judged, and it has been found wanting.
It’s not his fault, but there’s nothing – no reshuffle, no speech, nothing – he can do about it. Worse, in political life – not the case with books – we can’t find out if we’re wrong by flicking to the last page; there’s no alternative Britain where he ends up prime minister, where we could see if the response to his cover was correct or false.

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.
