So what explains Trevor then?

Apparently we get happier as we get older. Still doesn’t explain Trevor Mallard though does it…but I guess when you have a life of shattered dreams you have a lot to be cranky about:

Contrary to popular beliefs about grumpy old men and women, people grow happier as they get older, research shows.

Although physical quality of life goes down after middle age, mental satisfaction increases.

The study of more than 10,000 people in Britain and the US adds support to a previous report that happiness levels form a U-curve, hitting their low point at around 45, then rising.

Researchers from the University of Warwick analysed the participants’ lifestyle and health patterns and their links to mental and physical quality of life and health status.

Quality of life was evaluated using eight factors including perception of general health, pain, social functioning and mental health.

The researchers found that people reported better mental quality of life as they aged, despite a decrease in their physical abilities.

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.
