Low bastardry at its best

The Aussie really know how to practice low bastardry in politics:

The internal war has descended into chaos, with threats now being made against MPs from powerbrokers loyal to Ms Gillard.

Several confirmed they had been threatened with losing their preselection at the next election if they did not back Ms Gillard in the ballot.

Manufacturing Minister Kim Carr, who publicly said he would vote for Mr Rudd, said he would not be “intimidated”.

“There’s been all sorts of threats made. There are all sorts of suggestions as to what will happen to people who take a different view,” Mr Carr said.

Stuart Nash should be over in Australia watching and learning.

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.
