Who would ever have thought that National ministers would develop nanny-statism.
There is a danger this article will give Wicked Campers the very publicity it seemingly seeks out through the brash slogans on the back of its vans.
And yet, it was a risk three government ministers were willing to take when deciding to tell the Herald on Sunday of their determination to squish from the company the behaviour for which it has become notorious.
The idiot reporter is for once speaking the truth..he is giving free (earned) publicity to a private business…aided and abetted by three government ministers.
Wicked Campers is the brainchild of Australian John Webb.
He has ignored repeated requests to be interviewed for this story. To be fair, he (and Wicked Campers) ignore pretty much everyone. They don’t respond to the ASA, didn’t respond to NZ Transport Agency concerns, ignored government ministers who wrote and didn’t take calls from the Director General of Conservation this week.
His only interview appears to have been with an Australian marketing website about seven years ago. Of the business, he said: “It’s more about a reflection of myself in some ways … just having fun. It comes from … looking for reaction. We think we can’t do that then all of a sudden, we’re ‘stuff it, let’s do it’.”
