IF the operator has broken the law AND demonstrated it on national television, wouldn't that set a really bad precedent if the regulator did not take some sort of follow up action?

To put that another way, if some yobbo televises a 'stunt' (say driving a car through a red light), wouldn't you expect the police to charge him?

Can any regulator afford to be seen to be not enforcing the law, particularly when the alleged offender is known and the alleged offences were also broadcast on national television?

Personally, I think he is remarkably foolish for doing those things but more so for actually allowing his stupidity to be filmed and broadcast on national television. I think he deserves a kick up the backside!
