PHYSICAL THREATS


Occasionally (not very often) spruikers will make a physical threat against Neil Jenman or his family. These threats are almost always anonymous - which is typical of how cowards operate.

One spruiker - a vile creature from England - boasted to his staff that he was "going to destroy Neil Jenman and his family." This man did, at one stage, physically attack Neil. Fortunately, a security officer restrained the crazed spruiker before he could do much damage.

Although Neil was injured and later hospitalised, it was not as bad as it sounds. And, according to Neil, it was worth it. Even the Commissioner for Consumer Protection in WA (who kicked this spruiker out of Perth) agreed, saying that he, too, would be willing to cop a punch in the face if it meant he was protecting consumers.

Now, that's commitment to a cause.
