Comment of the Day

Some people don’t like me calling Farmers bludgers.

I think the bludgers comment stinks.

I am a farmer, I have a water take consent and i pay that account (non Dairy). I pay a large wad of tax which partly ends up supporting some dope smokin waste of space on the countries tit…how did i get labelled a bludger in comparison to “true” bludgers??

The comment shows poor form- it is a generalisation which pisses me off.

All bludging is evil, but some bludgers should know better. I’d assume that this commenter is going to actively oppose state funded irrigation schemes which are the biggest bludge going on at the moment, way bigger than any other form of corporate welfare.

This blog believes in airing contrary points of view. Reasoned 400 word commentaries on why farmers are the backbone of the economy, not a pack of bludgers, would be welcome. They will be published unedited but with comment.

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.
