Really? Get some brains

This came in on the tipline last night:

“How can you be supporting the lefty corey hebberd, He’s the chairman of Marlborough Labour!”

I don’t see how I am supporting Corey Hebberd (whether he is Labour or not) by publishing a late night email from a bullying Mayor.

I’ve never met Corey Hebberd, but by all accounts he is a pretty capable fellow even if he is in the Labour party.

Personally, I couldn’t care less what party he is in. My target is the bullying late night emailing mayor who is bullying people into silence with his legal threats.  

That is unbecoming of a mayor or, indeed, any politicians irrespective of the politics of the victim of the bullying.

The tipster, who didn’t have the courage to give me his name, should think about that.

The flip side is that my anonymous correspondent thinks it is OK to bully and threaten people late at night via email.

It is unacceptable for mayors to be bullying and intimidating anyone. I think Alistair Sowman should just give it away, because now I’m on his case.

Given his behaviour, perhaps he should change his name to Alistair Pigman.

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.
