Ross Cameron, fair & balanced, is a Private Equity Consultant, former Lawyer (Blake Dawson Waldron), Investment Banker (Macquarie Capital Advisers), and member of the Federal Parliament, serving three terms in the Howard era as Member for Parramatta and Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasurer, Peter Costello and before that as a staffer to US Senator Mark Hatfield in Washington DC.
Ross has worked in political commentary over the past two decades as a columnist for the Sydney Morning Herald, a commentator for the ABC (online, radio and TV) and as an anchor for the top rating #Outsiders program on SkyNews Australia with Mark Latham and Rowan Deane.
Ross is known for his love of ancient wisdom, especially Marcus Aurelius and the sages of Greece, for his always rational but often contrarian opinions, and for his accurate predictions against the media consensus, including Donald Trump and Brexit in 2016 and Scott Morrison in 2019. After receiving a five year suspension from the Liberal Party for criticism of corruption in the Berajykian Government, Ross became a political refugee, then joined the Liberal Democrats, who recently elected him President of the NSW division. According to Labor analyst Graham Richardson “Ross’s biggest problem is that he tells too much of the truth.”
