Seems I’m not the only one insensitive enough to ask the proper questions





You would think that Peter Dunne is smart enough after all these years to not get led around by the dick.  But even then, he thinks 1) not cooperating with an enquiry into the GCSB leaks and 2) resigning, is going to protect him from people asking about his indiscretions?

What planet is he on?

The irony is that it really does appear that he didn’t actually leak the documents.  If you read the report, it becomes clear this is so.  After all, you leak, you run, you hide.  You don’t end up writing 80 something emails, 23 of which while on holiday with your wife to leak it paragraph by paragraph, or have an in-depth technical discussion about it with a journo.

He’s falling on his sword to keep a bunch of hot and bothered emails from hitting the blogs and newspapers.

Once again, it’s not the act itself, but the act of covering it up, that takes the politician down.

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.
