A sentiment we can all agree with

Kevin Rudd’s great march through Australia isn’t going so well. It seems that not everyone is a fan.

HE’S got his chip, but he doesn’t have his vote.

Kevin Rudd today spent the longest time with real people during his campaign so far when he made a mammoth hour-long shopping centre tour of Perth’s Carousel Westfield at Cannington.

Making a brief stop to refuel, he stole a chip from the plate of three courier drivers eating at chicken takeaway Nando’s.

But while 23-year-old Mark Allen was happy to provide the nourishment, he said he would be voting for Opposition Leader Tony Abbott.

“I think the other guy’s going to do a better job,” Mr Allen said “He’s a bit more stable in my mind.” 

And that wasn’t the only incident;

Mr Rudd’s shopping centre stroll went better than his visit to Perth’s Ctiy Link station this morning where he was heckled by a man shouting “you’re a f—ing idiot.”

As a woman commended the Prime Minister for the job he was doing and a man selling the Big Issue at the city’s main train station asked about the government policy’s on youth homelessness, Joshua Kyriakos Kailis yelled at Mr Rudd.

Later he said: “He is a f—ing idiot, why should I regret swearing?”

He called on Mr Rudd to resign.

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.
