Brisbane Times

I love the robust nature of Australian politics. The voters of Queensland certainly took the baseball bat to Labor yesterday.

Federal LNP frontbencher Peter Dutton says Queenslanders will punish Labor at the next federal election the same way they have the Bligh government tonight.

Mr Dutton told Sky News the LNP had performed strongly in seats such as Kallangur, Ferny Grove and Everton.

‘‘These are unprecedented swings in this part of Brisbane, it’s quite remarkable,’’ he said.

‘‘The interesting thing now is to question whether Labor will get to half a dozen seats.

‘‘I think people are waiting with a baseball bat in Queensland for Julia Gillard as well.”

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.
