Understandable, I’d want to vomit on them too

Yesterday John Key was feeling poorly and declared that he felt like vomiting on the press gallery journos accompanying him.

Understandable really. Some I wouldn’t piss on some of them if they were on fire, so wasting a good voiding of the guts on a journalist might be a step to far.

Prime Minister John Key says he wanted to vomit on the press – literally – but managed to keep his stomach down.

Yeah just reading some of their drivel makes my bile rise too. 

“I don’t know whether I ate something or whatever but it was short and sharp,” Key told reporters in New York. “I had a desperate sensation to throw up on you when I was doing my last media conference and it would not have been that great.”

On a whirlwind tour that has taken him to the US and Europe, Key today was forced to stop and rest while walking a few blocks to the UN from his hotel, The Westin, in downtown Manhattan.

Appearing pale, Key was then taken into a pub, McFaddens Saloon, by an entourage that included UN Ambassador Jim McLay and chief of staff Wayne Eagleson.

He carried on to the UN for an official luncheon and then headed straight into a series of bilateral meetings with foreign leaders.

Key later told reporters he was “feeling great” again.

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.
