Malcolm Fraser talks sense

The Sydney Morning Herald

He may have gone soft and liberal in his old age, but he is right about this.

Mr Fraser argues there are systematic issues plaguing Federal Parliament today, pointing to the advent of career politicians who he believes act as mindless apparatchiks.

“I would like to see in the Parliament people who have achieved something in their own right before they become members of Parliament. So if it doesn’t work out, if they have a serious issue of conscience, they are prepared to support their conscience and if necessary walk away from it all.”

How many of our politicians could walk away from it all?

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.
