What’s in a brand name?

It is a little known fact that my brother-in-law is intellectually disabled. He calls me his Cam-in-law.

My BIL doesn’t use many words, but I have encouraged him over the years to stand up for himself and sledge too. Anyway he also comes up with some funny sayings sometimes.

Lately he has been suffering from some stomach upsets and the only thing that works is Mylanta.

He is a little confused by the brand name though and it is too hard to explain…so hey we just run with it. 

The other day he was feeling a bit of heartburn and so he asked his mum if he could have some of “Your Lanta”…my mother-in-law replied to him “You mean Mylanta”.

His reply was “Yes, some of Mum’s Lanta”.

It is just easier now to call it Lanta…usually with a little snigger at the in family joke.

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.
