Re: BBC Watchdog report :: Faulty Renault Clio bonnet catches

Firstly do not try to criticise him as an individul but stick to the points which are relevant and contestable. It's probably best to stick to bulleted points on which he has to answer. Keep them short - thus giving him little opportunity to waffle. This guy should be out electioneering not running a department charged with overseeing vital safety.

For example one interesting point would be "why does VOSA not have the technical ability to carry out its own investigations.
Another would be "Yes the organisation does not carry out investigations to the same level as a criminal investigation but if the situation doesn't merit such what level of investigation would be seen as suitable in his view."
Yet another "does he not feel that a bonnet catch failure is potentially life threatening"

Ideally you'll need to try and nail him down to relevant technical facts as this seem to be his weakness.

I'm looking forward to the next thrilling instalment.
