A letter to David Shearer from a WO reader

A reader writes to David Shearer. I was going to froward it one but I thought I should share it, because it has a great deal of truth to it.

Dear Cameron,

This letter is from and absolute NATIONAL supporter – I don’t know if you pass on commiserations, but if you do, here goes. (Thanks)

I know we have all joked about David Shearer through his time as leader of the Opposition, but in all good heart I feel sad that he had been so badly let down by his caucus. 

It seems to me that he has been undermined from day one. I hope his party members are ashamed at their behaviour and embarrassed that a GOOD MAN has been treated so disrespectfully.

I hope he can now enjoy his life and his family knowing that he has tried as Michael Jackson sang ” to make the world a better place”. God bless you and your family David all the best.

(P.S. sorry for laughing at you, but that as they say is politics).

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.
