Correspondence about parking

A reader emails about my car parking posts.

Hi Whale I’m a concerned reader and  I find myself in complete agreement with your shaming of idiot parkers.

I’m personally gutted that NZ on Air hasn’t thrown truckloads of cash at you to create  the much needed TV Show – The Parking Hunt!

However, I am fearful of the omnipresent Whale Army and know it was going to be matter of time before my own lack of parking prowess was exposed. Hence I am dobbing myself in and throwing my failings at the mercy of you and the Whale Army.

However, Whale, what I’m asking is am I at fault, or is the Blue Holden Commodore criminally negligent for taking up space at the front of my park? 

I understand your judgement will be binding.

But please, please don’t throw me out of the Army, because I only have you and Greypower in my life.

Having a look at the photo below it is certainly reasonable to blame the “blue” car for your distress. Your parking is certainly better than David Farrar’s efforts.

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.
