The bleeding hearts find something else to complain about

The jobsworths are complaining again.

“A couple who reported a man driving with an open bottle of beer in Nelson were dumbfounded to be told by police he wasn’t breaking the law.”

“Road safety campaigner Clive Matthew-Wilson, who also edits car review website,, was shocked to learn the practice was legal and called for a law change.

Is he really that thick? It would appear so.

“It’s completely crazy. I just can’t believe our lawmakers are that stupid,” he said. “It’s like saying you’re allowed to drive carrying a handgun as long as you’re not shooting anyone.

Errrm, you can as long as you have the correct firearms licence and are heading to the shooting range or the gun shop. 

“One tends to follow the other. If you’re drinking while driving, then it’s highly likely that it’s going to cause serious road safety problems.””

Highly likely? Proof? Evidence? Or just the mad rantings of someone with two fathers?

It is only if you exceed the legal limits are under the influence. Many people regularly drive with open drinks of all sorts. Hell any person who goes through a McDonalds drive thru does this. Is Matthew Two-Fathers suggesting that their hot chocolate, or diet coke is “highly likely” to “cause serious road safety problems”?

Clive Matthew-Wilson yet again shows us how much of a chutney-ferret he is.

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.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
