John Armstrong is harsh on the pathetic and lack-lustre effort int eh house yesterday. Basically he is saying they are as impotent as eunuchs:

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.
