Diary of Comrade Kate, Ctd

Saturday 6th of October

A really bad day. My old comrade Mike got arrested a few days back after some bloody tory rag investigated his union. Apparently the workers had been funding a lavish lifestyle, which was bullshit, Mike has always been true comrade who put the workers first. He sent me some lovely union produced flowers when I beat Ken’s record and increased union membership.

Mike and I go a long way back, we were good mates back in the 80’s when he lead a singalong in the Long Bar at the Raffles when we stopped over on our way to East Berlin for a workers rights conference. We had way too many Singapore Slings and nearly missed the flight the next day. He has always been a very generous guy, and a few years back he  took me on a cruise of the South Pacific he was telling me how hard it was to live in Sydney and represent the workers as the cost of living was so unbelievably high.

Hopefully I can catch up with Mike when I am across for Allen’s house warming barbie in a few weeks. It is always tough to see a comrade fall on such hard times.

Vietnamese takeaway for lunch. Nearly threw it up when found it was from a South Veitnamese family’s restaurant. Bloody SPS. Will have to get a new one.

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.
