Thanks for the $1.8M

Patrick Lee-lo

I’ve posted before about a piss-ant little organisation called the Building Service Contractors or the BSC. It’s headed up by El Presidente Patrick Lee-Lo.

Investigations into the BSC and their financial accounts is shedding some sunlight and shows the BSC is effectively a closeted union organisation – and you know my views on dodgy scum-bag unions.

I hear Rodney Hide has had some interesting correspondence from Patrick Lee-Lo following his articles in the NBR exposing Taxpayers fund cosy cleaning cartel. Seems they’ve had to engage a PR firm to send out media releases to try and calm old Rodney down. How’s that going for them?

Looks like they’re going to need more than PR help.

The Owl has been looking into the BSC’s accounts and is shocked to see that they’ve dropped their audit requirement.

They now just do an accounts review – meaning Markhams the auditors don’t have to qualify anything. Bit of a perfect scenario if you want to spend money and not be reviewed.

One question the Owl has is why did all of a sudden did the BSC drop their audit requirement?

This is even more serious considering that under their constitution they have to have an auditor and audited accounts. Untidy yes.

The Truth will also be told about the BSCs growing nest egg of $1.8 million plus. Maybe this is to support the unions and their political donations to Labour?

Somehow I don’t think El Presidente Patrick Lee-Lo is going to have a happy January.

    Leaving the financials to one side for a moment – no right minded Kiwi would be seen in public with that dodgy tie & even more dodgy moustache. That moustache is of Peter Plumney Walker proportions.

      Poor Plumley Walker, the plummeter.

    What sort of organisation has $1.8m sitting in cash reserves? What does the BSC actually do for its members?

      What they do is the bidding of the SWFU….Mallard helped set this cosy little rort up, they are just like their union mentors…into patch protection

    I have a serious issue with an ITO dropping its audit requirements

    If I was a member I would be asking some pretty hard questions straight away and asking for the CEO to be making a public statement asap.

    Great Article – our company has had dealings with this guy and he is a prick! He is a known pinko and makes all sorts of misleading statements in the media. He has made lots of enemies and has no friends left! Even his own members think he is out of control and are working against him. Time for him to quit and join the SFWU with all his mates

    Building Service Contractors (which is a pretty eyebrow raising euphemism for cleaners and exterminators) appears to be the national body which governs and regulates its members. Much in the same way as NZICA governs and regulates their members. If I were a member I would want a full audit but it looks as though a special general meeting was held and the motion to change was passed. If their members are happy to allow lax audit practices then it’s their problem, not ours. It’s the same with Unions. We will no doubt see the same fraud and irregularities from our Unions as we are seeing coming out of Australia. When that happens I will point and laugh and say ‘I told you so’

    They probably recently became eligible for the move from audit to review engagement under our ever changing national framework of accounting standards.
