It looks as though the LNP decapitation strategy has succeeded, with Labor divested of its future leadership contenders:

  • Deputy Premier and Treasurer Andrew Fraser has lost Mt Coot-tha to the LNP’s Saxon Rice
  • Infrastructure Minister Stirling Hinchliffe has lost Stafford to the LNP’s Chris Davis
  • Minister for Women Karen Struthers is out in Algester, to the LNP’s Anthony Shorten
  • Health Minister Geoff Wilson has lost Ferny Grove to the LNP’s Dale Shuttleworth
  • In Whitsunday, Tourism Minister Jan Jarratt has lost to the LNP’s Jason Costigan

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.
