NZSA still making false claims two years on….


It’s funny how images and words can remind us of certain things or people. For example, when I hear the word Muppet I always think about The Executive Officer of the New Zealand Security Association who goes by the name of Greg Watts! So with the recent release of the Muppets Most Wanted movie, it’s hardly a surprise that the defunct 5-star system has been in my thoughts again!

It’s now over two years since the NZSA dropped the extortion racket that was the 5 Star Alarm security rating system yet they still have “Vehicle Security” on the home page of their website and then this page with the false claim that the MTA has taken the system over.

I’ve email Greg Watt’s numerous times in the past to inform him that this is a misleading claim, yet as always seems to be the case with Mr Watts, nothing gets done.

I’ve just sent the following email to Greg Watts:

Dear Greg,

It disappoints to see that the NZSA website still claims that the MTA represent vehicle security standards. I have made you aware that this is not the case in the past, yet you seem to have failed to update your website accordingly. I have attached the following words to help you correct the NZSA website. All you need to do is cut and paste it to the appropriate page.

We (The New Zealand Security Association) would like to apologies for making false claims relating to vehicle security standards. This page previously claimed that the MTA (Motor Trade Association) had taken over the representing the industry. This information was misleading as the MTA have nothing to do with vehicle security standards.

We would also like to thank Julian at Obsessive Vehicle Security for bringing this to our attention.

If you would like me to draft up a resignation letter for you then I would be more then willing to oblige as you clearly seem incapable of finding the motivation to do the right thing and step down from your role as Executive Officer.

Kind Regards,

    Hopefully being a rude asshole to him is the best way to go about getting your point across, rather than speaking to him like a normal person.

    Hi John,

    Your name seems familiar. Can’t quite place where I’ve come across you in the past, but I’m sure it was a pleasant occasion.

    I’ve tried the carrot method with Mr Watts in the past without getting any results, so figured it was time to get the stick out!
