Whaleoil reader gets right down to the heart of the matter

Len, you haven’t been “stupid”.

“Stupid” is when you buy a beat up car for way more money than it’s worth.

“Stupid” is when a complete stranger walks up to you and asks you if you’d like to buy a bridge in Antarctica and you say “yes”.

Stupidity is a lack of intelligence.  


You have behaved in a manner which is deceitful, conniving and self-serving and not just once.

You have done this repeatedly and continually for a two year period.

That’s not stupidity……it’s a lack of character.

You have looked your wife in the eye every day for two years knowing you were deceiving her.


Character is doing the right thing, even when nobody is watching.

Character counts…..or at least used to in the NZ in which I grew up.

Now, I’m not so sure.    — hunk4hire

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.
