Mangrove learns from Clark how to drive

Mangrove, or should I say Li’l Flick Li’l Flick, should be careful how he drives his taxpayer funded, painted and logo’d car. You just never know when you are going to pass one of  The Whales secret operatives.

Last night on my way home at 9-30 and between Onga Onga and Hastings on SH50 I had this car coming up fast behind me. When I left Onga the were no car lights visible and before Tikokino he was right behind me. I was travelling between 100 and 110 so he was much faster. He finally decided to pass me and the car in front of me on a narrower piece of the road approaching a blind corner.

Lo and behold NASHMP numberplate flashed past. He then drove at a suitable speed until a fair distance ahead of us. Then he must have floored it because he just disappeaedr off ahead.

You would think with a give-away rego like that he would be a bit more circumspect in his driving. Probably driving up after his half-week in Wellington (Parliament). It would be interesting to know what time he left Welly.

Was going to *555 him but thought this might be better.

Keep up the good work.


Oh Dear Li’l Flick should really driver slower. Must have been on a promise and scared he would miss out.

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.
