Misreading policy

Mary Riddell gets it wrong in the Torygraph.

Voters do not mostly want to shoot a burglar or swap shares for rights or hurt the poor.

No one wants to shoot a burglar. They don’t want to be burgled to begin with. What they really don’t want is an innocent person being prosecuted for protecting themselves from some scumbag who invades their home.

The fear is not the burglar. The fear is a system that unfairly prosecutes those who stand up for themselves and their family.

On another note did we resolve the question of what is the best burglar load for the shotty?

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.
