Diary of Comrade Kate, Ctd

Thursday October 4

Not a good day. Had to call my old mate Steve who I first met at an ILO conference in Berlin in the nineties, we ended up at some ridiculously expensive champagne bar where the women seemed to have lost their tops, singing Arbeiterlied with the poor women who were missing their tops. Steve was so good to me, he put the bill on his Transport Workers Union Amex Card. I’d never seen an Amex platinum before, I was so impressed.

Some silly bloody journalist is reporting that Steve said he has unfettered legal power and could make telcos wear red underpants on their head if they wanted to bid on a silly capitalist auction. Why this is news is beyond me, of course he has unfettered power, have these foolish journalists never read anything by Stalin about power? If a minister wants someone to wear red undies on their head they should just do it without question.

Asked the SPS to ring those bloody capitalists at Crest and tell them to wear red underpants on their head, will see if they do before I make any decisions about Section 6A.

Custard Square for lunch. A bit past its best, feel a little queasy.

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.
