The silliest name ever

Regular readers will know that I have run a campaign to draw attention to the awful life experiences that happen to people who suffer from Silly First Name Syndrome. Today a prime example of silly first name syndrome has been reported in the NZ Herald.

Wairarapa police are looking for 21 year-old Customline Ford, who has a warrant for his arrest, for breaching court-imposed bail conditions.

Detective Tracey Calder said Ford is facing charges including burglary, theft from a motor vehicle and receiving.

“We believe Ford is in the Wairarapa or Wellington areas and would like to speak to anyone who may know his whereabouts.”

Ford has gang connections and should not be approached.

No surprises here that Customline Ford has found his way to the notice of the constabulary. With a name like that I imagine there is a trail of destruction following him around. Its real Deliverance country down there in the Wairarapa for sure.

I’m still surprised the Greens haven’t yet called for a ban on Silly First names, they have wanted to ban almost everything else.

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.
