"I'll do you a favour...If I put you're racing to get the boss there to the rugby, there's a chance some drooling sycophants will pay your fine..." 26 August 2005.
Reference Number: DCDL-0000111
A traffic policeman has stopped a car for speeding on its way to a rugby match. The occupants, the driver wearing an All Black cap and a woman wearing a black pom-pom hat with 'NZ' stitched onto the front, are obviously annoyed and frustrated at being stopped. The policeman says that he will do them a favour by writing in his report that the driver was racing to get his boss (the woman) to the rugby with the hope that some drooling sycophants might offer to pay the fine. Refers to the recent case where some of the policemen involved in a cavalcade taking Helen Clark to a rugby match were fined for excessive speed and Labour Party MPs did a whip-around to pay their fines.
