A decision is to be made in the next few days on whether Brett Kavanuagh will be confirmed to the Supreme Court.

Over the last few weeks, America has been captivated and outraged over the treatment of President Trump's nominee.

Cameron called into the Leighton Smith Show this morning, and explained similarities between Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird and the current situation.

"The views that one side take on this argument are almost incompatible with the framework of the other side of the argument. If you cannot see Kavanaugh as anything other than a white racist male, or anything along those lines, there is no hope for a dialogue between the two sides. This is much more than just a case, it is a reflection of a culture war in America at the moment. The woman in Harper Lee’s tale was believed purely because she was a white woman. There are certainly parallels with this case and Harper Lee’s tale.”
