Matt McCarten’s manners – the stress is showing


Via the Tipline

Normally I’d let this slide, but having worked for a number of years in the service industry to put myself through university, what I saw this morning really disappointed me.
I’ve just witnessed Matt McCarten dealing with some service industry staff. Incredibly rude. The words please and thank you were non-existent, he stormed off the moment he’d put in his PIN number, didn’t even wait for it to come up saying accepted or not. True he wasn’t leaving the immediate area, but it’s a highly frustrating thing to do for the people behind the counter and seems to show a lack of respect for them and their job.
I don’t care how busy, how tired, how stressed you are, there’s no reason not to display some basic manners, especially when dealing with service industry staff, who his party would have us believe are part of their core constituency.

Matt is an absolute cold blooded master at the Dark Arts, but even he knows the numbers aren’t moving the way they need to be moving for his golden boy to be in with a chance.

I expect the next 3 weeks to be rough.  Very rough.   It’s all or nothing time.

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.
