Maybe Shearer should get a mistress

It was worth 4% to Paddy Pantsdown:

Of course, there was one bad day with The Sun providing the devastating headline ‘Paddy Pantsdown’, but the story soon died. Ashdown’s ratings went up and the Liberal Democrats rose four per cent in the opinion polls. It had been a nightmare for Ashdown but it became a positive for the party.

Most politicians it would negatively impact them, but not in this case and it never has hurt other European leaders like Silvio Berlusconi or the various little French roosters like Sarkozy and Hollande. 

Not sure how the public will take news of David Shearer playing away. You never know it might just help him and Labour.

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.
