A Personal Approach to Domestic Violence

This is a theoretical situation. You are a senior cabinet minister chairing a campaign meeting and a certain anonymous party official, perhaps called “Mr B” is conferenced in by phone. During the conference call Mr B has a screaming match with the aspiring Mrs B to such an extent that your conference call cannot hear anything other than screaming.

Do you:
a. Call him afterwards and tell him to stop, and explain to him screaming matches with women is a form of domestic violence and are totally unacceptable.
b. Call him afterwards and tell him if he is going to have a screaming match do to so either before or after the conference call.
c. Turn a blind eye and accept that some men get off on screaming at their women and kicking doors down etc
d. Organise a proper screaming match between Mr B and one of your key offsiders who is known as a good screamer and start offering odds to all your mates.
e. Ask Mr B if his dogs respond to screaming as well as his women do.

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.
