The constant martyr?

David Shearer has told us about his favourite book and movie.

His favourite book is Reach for the Sky about British Word War II hero Douglas Bader who lost his legs yet continued to fly and to escape when he was captured.

Hos favourite movie is The Lives of Others. Apparently it’s “a German film about a Stasi officer during the Cold War who is forced into spying on people, until he discovers, for want of a better word, his humanity.”

Bad enough watching a movie like that but one in German with subtitles just makes him a glutton for punishment. If that is what rips his undies then perhaps he should watch a more appropriate subtitled German movie…Der Untergang.

I do wonder though why his whole life needs to revolve around getting his jollys off pain and suffering?

I’m starting to get the feeling that Labour wants us to think of David Shearer as the constant martyr.

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.
