The debate between MP Mohammad Shawabka and political activist Mansour Murad became heated after the two men traded insults with each other.

The politician then hurled his shoe at Mr Murad and brandished a pistol at him.

No shots were fired and no-one was too seriously hurt.

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.
