Botox bandit gets a brain haematoma

This ought to stop her rabbiting on about the Falkland Islands for a bit.

Argentina’s president, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, has been told by doctors to take a month off after recently suffering a head injury, her spokesman said Saturday.

The spokesman, Alfredo Scoccimarro, said in a statement that Mrs. Kirchner, 60, had suffered a “skull trauma” on Aug. 12, and that doctors submitted Mrs. Kirchner to a neurological exam on Saturday after she presented symptoms of a migraine during a routine exam for an abnormal heart rhythm.  

Mr. Scoccimarro did not provide more details about the injury, but said that doctors on Saturday had diagnosed a “chronic subdural collection,” which may refer to a collection of blood between the surface of the brain and the dura, the brain’s outermost covering.

If Mrs. Kirchner follows her doctors’ advice, the vice president, Amado Boudou, would temporarily assume presidential duties, as he did in early 2012, after Mrs. Kirchner was incorrectly given a diagnosis of thyroid cancer.

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.
