dsaddasWe’ve all had our fun exposing the idiots that don’t care to park properly, but it is much less of a joke for people with mobility problems that need access to closer parking spots.

One of them is an avid Whaleoil reader, and he’s gotten mad


As the holder of a Mobility Parking Card, I thought to park in one of the two mobility spaces right by the northern exit door of the carpark under Aotea Square.  Lo and behold, a massive SUV stuck right in the middle, thus taking up both spaces.
I didn’t want to leave one of my cards with a note of what I thought of the parker’s attitude, as at my advanced age (84) I’m too old for possible angry consequences. The very helpful girl on duty promised to leave a warning note.
Later, I remembered your pix of such parks, and reminded myself I could have used my smartphone to photograph the sod and send it to you.  Then I went s step further and have printed myself off coupla sheets of warning notes that I can cut into two handy A5 sheets.
I attach a pdf in case you might like to make it available on the blog for others to to print off and carry round in their glove boxes for such occasions.

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.
