Brisbane MP channels Lockwood

Oh dear it looks like a Brisbane MP is channeling Lockwood Smith’s 2008 immigrant “small hands” gaffe:

The head of Australia’s peak migrant body has hit back at Brisbane MP Teresa Gambaro‘s comments that migrants should be taught to use deodorant and queue, saying the statement had no place in modern Australia.

And she doesn’t get away with it just because she is a “wog”. Even if she is clean and uses deodorant:

“Teresa Gambaro comes from the same background as mine and we grew up being called dirty wogs,” said Pino Migliorino, chair of the Federation of Ethnic Communities Councils, who has Italian heritage.

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.
