Slash and Burn isn’t terminal

Politicians in the main are squeamish at the best of times. The longer they sit inside the beltway the more squeamish they become as they hide behind their army of advisors and otherwise soft functionaries.

Every once in a while a politician comes along and goes with his gut instinct and says damn the pollsters and tells their more squeamish advisors to stick their focus groups up their collective arses because doing what is right for the voters is more important than doing what is right for the party.

Look no further than Campbell Newman’s government in Queensland. Julia Gillard has been predicting that his slash and burn policies to reign in an out of control state sector would cost him in the polls. Think again

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. 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 who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
