“the most miserable bunch of flowers I’ve ever received” – Annette King

"Miserable" Whaleoil flowers

“Miserable” Whaleoil flowers

Claire Trevett reports

Labour MP Annette King has received flowers from an unlikely admirer and says while she always likes getting flowers “it is the most miserable bunch of flowers I’ve ever received.”

Ms King was sent flowers by Whaleoil blogger Cameron Slater today with a card thanking her for promoting Mr Slater and his blog in Parliament.

Ms King had attacked the blog in Parliament yesterday.

“I’ve always enjoyed receiving flowers, and it was nice to be thanked by Cameron for promoting his blog. But I think his blog must be in financial trouble because it’s the most miserable bunch of flowers I’ve ever received. The flowers will not require me to put them on my Pecuniary Interests register.”

She said there were five gerberas and one lily, with six chocolates attached.

She would not throw them into the gutter because it was not the flowers’ fault they had come from Mr Slater, so she would put them somewhere where others could enjoy them.

Ms King said it did show that Mr Slater at least had a sense of humour.

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.
