Holding their feet to the fire, Ctd

Some commentators are lamenting the demise of Andrew Mitchell in the UK, one in particular provides a particularly gay excuse:

The Mitchell Affair has set a precedent and it has also sent a message to every trade union, professional association and special interest group in the land: when you have the minister on the ropes, keep at it. Stamina will be rewarded.

Of course you should. Chippie should not back off telling the truth about Hekia and holding her to account. Politics is about delivering heads and Chippie is going the right way about it. If Queen Hekia can’t get the better of the boy wonder then she deserves to be metaphorically pushed under a bus.

Others like the political special olympics competitor Trevor Mallard, need to stop being morons and start holding opponents feet to the actual fire, rather than manufacturing crises that have no basis in fact.

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.
