Irrelevant? Helen Kelly thinks so

Helen Kelly thinks I am irrelevant.

Yet she took time out of her busy schedule trying to screw over Peter Jackson and other Kiwi employers to comment about a supposed irrelevant blogger.

Council of Trade Unions president Helen Kelly said there had been a concerted attack on unions by Mr Slater. She said Mr Slater was “irrelevant” but was concerned about the port “putting the knife into its own staff”. 

Yeah, so irrelevant that Helen Kelly laid a complaint with Radio Rhema about a 15 minute segment that I did for free once a week with Pat Brittenden. They complained so much and so hard that Radio Rhema management, not blessed with courage told Pat he couldn’t use me anymore.

You’d hardly try and get someone off air if they were irrelevant.

Claire Trevett didn’t think I was irrelevant either  when she rang me yesterday about the Auckland Mayoralty.

Someone who has three articles written about them in just one paper, features in a TV show this morning, and is also in Fairfax is hardly irrelevant…but hey Helen, you just keep on thinking that.

  • fecnde

    Helen who?

    • so what

      This is so funny. Wait to Kelly reads about inquiry into union funds. Then she will be very relevant. This is a defensive punch by the hard left to distract what is coming

  • Never in the dark…..

    Rest in the comfortable knowledge that her only relevance is in her own mind, the ‘blue collars’ I’m familiar with don’t have any time for her. Much like Unite, she seems to dream up issues and take it to workers, when really there’s no issue at all.

  • Pissedoffyouth

    Most read blog in NZ, vs unions in 2013? Does she even know what that word means?

  • williamabong

    For someone that’s irrelevant she certainly wants to hook in hard, l always considered someone irrelevant I just ignored them, problem solved.
    Look at how this blog is conducted you may arrive at the real reason for her hate speak, if a poster comes here and says something stupid they cop flogging from others, worst case told they’re a fuckwit by Cam, end of story.
    Say something out of line at Farrers travel blog you cop a black mark, cop enough you get to wait in the naughty boys corner for a week, which has helped his blog to become insignificant, and a home for softcocks.
    Contrast this with the Strandard, if you dare offer any form of debate or opinion away from the staunch union line under the bus you go, after all the goatrooters have flogged you in the street, then your comment is deleted and you’re banned for life, and Dead Blert where Madam Clare, and serial pest Trevor control both the thought process and direction of every debate

  • andrew carrot

    Helen’s an important person. Proof? She can get up to 20 people, occasionally 50, to attend her rallies! Impressive. Whatever the case, she’s just pissed off that Peter Jackson’s got a new Gulfstream and that there isn’t a socialist government in place to buy the union movement one.

  • EpochNZ

    What with your name being slathered all over the place, how are your page hits looking this morning Cam? Is Barbara Streisand alive and well?

    • http://www.whaleoil.co.nz/ Whaleoil

      Rocketing up thanks

  • Brendon Taylor

    When you mention your opponent you unwittingly make them relevant, whether they were or not.

  • CommonSense404

    Simply a nasty, hateful person with a life based on negativity and tearing down anything remotely resembling success.

    • Balanced View

      That’s being a bit hard isn’t it? Cameron posts the odd non negative piece

  • williamabong

    If Cameron and this blog are irrelevant why the concerted and concentrated attack from Kelly, Fisher, and the Horrid all in one go, if one were a conspiracy theorist one would almost think there was a link here.
    Also add in Stuff-up having a feature on John Keys “diminishing” credibility it starts to smell like the left may be having a “lets have a go” weekend, rather stupid really, I would have thought Labour weekend would have been a better fit, once again we see evidence that Helen and her pals are not the sharpest knives in the drawer.

    • AnonWgtn

      To get that lot ante you, you must have been successful.

  • StacyMcNaught

    A small typo in your heading has just come to my attention…” Helen Kelly thinks…”.

    • johnbronkhorst

      Yes 3 more words that cannot be use consecutively in a sentence.

  • oldcromwell

    It seems a little too coincidental that so many are trying to poke you with a sharp stick all at the same time. It would appear to be a concerted attack in which case the political motives of some supposedly “neutral” reporters are exposed for all to see.

    The reason for the attack can only be one thing – you are scoring hits all over the place and so you are increasingly a threat to them. As usual with the left, they are trying to minimise the impact by use of lies and innuendo.

    Keep up the good work. Those who are trying to malign you clearly don’t remember the maxim that any publicity is good publicity, and that by having a crack at you, they are in fact increasing your readership and hardening the attitude of most of your supporters.

  • johnbronkhorst

    With union membership falling……Who is fast becoming irrelevant, Helen?

    • GazzW

      ……….hence her need to become a scum list MP a la Little Andrew. Who’s next to join the queue for the lifeboats? The sitting list MPs must be wondering which of them will be bumped to make way for Kelly. Union money talks.

    • AnonWgtn

      Last think Kelly wants it might reduce her huge earnings salted in her offshore bank.

  • Dave

    Business as usual Cam, they are all trying to create a diversion, trying to discredit you and your blog, as they fear your following is getting too much for them. The Horrid via the Fisherman can cast whatever he likes, to me they are saying, we cant control Cameron and WOBH, so lets try and discredit them. I wonder how much or what the union movement has ever done for Mr David Fisher, and I question if he is a crd carrying member of the unions or the labour party. Did Matt McVomit have a back room hand in this, the scum unionist, horrid insider ??

    Yes, I think they are all worried, worried union membership and funding is drying up, worried WOBH exposes the dodgy dealings, and the Journos are now worried for their jobs and income as the horrid sheds subscribers. THey will be in real trouble when spring comes, it wont be needed to start the wood fire, so yet another reason not to buy it.

    So, Steady as she goes, and if you need moral support, or a subscriber, I am here, and I will subscribe!!

  • Patrick

    Kelly is right, Slater is irrelevant, in much the same way that I am irrelevant & Kelly is irrelevant in the greater scheme of things. What is relevant though is the manner of the concerted attacks by the left this morning from the Greens comparing Key & Muldoon to the double teaming of Slater by Fischer & Kelly. The lefties are declaring war & based on that a response is required, hard, fast & prolonged to cut them off at the knees.

    • AnonWgtn

      Fisher was not born when Muldoon was PM – prick, Fisher I mean.

  • grumpy

    Here we go.
    http://thestandard.org.nz/the-lusk-paper/
    A clear proof that The Herald, Eddie and the Standard are in league.
    Note Eddie claims the Lusk papers were leaked to them a “couple of days ago”. Clear evidence that The Herald is now part of the leftie propaganda machine.

    • CommonSense404

      Thanks for ruining my day – clicked on the link and now I feel all dirty

      • dyannt

        Me too. I don’t know why I bothered.

    • Agent BallSack

      Or clear evidence that the Herald plagiarizes everything it publishes.

      • grumpy

        Nope, the Horrid says it was leaked the document by a National insider. the Stranded says it was also leaked the documents.
        So, either the national insider, if there was one, either leaked it to The Standard (which sounds unthinkable) , or the Horrid did.

  • Chad Chambers

    Banned from Radio Rhema, eh Cam? You naughty, naughty boy.

    • fecnde

      I was baffled that he was on there – but then considered POTD and some other stuff … made sense

  • fecnde

    I guess that you should increase the readership of your blog to become more relevant cam. I mean – compared to other NZ blogs … oh wait …

    http://www.whaleoil.co.nz/2013/04/blog-rankings-2/

    So all of those are LESS relevant than your irrelevant rambles eh ;-)

    • Chad Chambers

      Blogs are ok, entertaining and everything but it’s hardly real work, is it? I use it as an escape from real life.

      • http://www.whaleoil.co.nz/ Whaleoil

        You must have a really bad real life if blogs are an escape, and yes it is hard work. I’d like to see you try and do what I do…many have tried, many more have failed…and no one is even close.

        • Chad Chambers

          Thought you said you didn’t get paid for this?

          • StacyMcNaught

            where was that said?

          • Pissedoffyouth

            Chadders, the simple fact that the comments are mostly unmoderated is the reason so many people come back

          • Chad Chambers

            That’s fine, “anything goes” forums are popular but they will always struggle for relevance because of that. Un-moderated forums are considered by most people to house the socially unkempt.

          • StacyMcNaught

            That will be why the blog struggles month to month in the rankings then huh

          • Bunswalla

            What does “socially unkempt” mean, and what have you been smoking?

          • Ronnie Chow

            You are so full of shit , Chamber . A really sorry character , you are .

          • kehua

            Do you find it difficult to be so up yourself?

          • http://www.whaleoil.co.nz/ Whaleoil

            What racism?

          • Chad Chambers

            spollyike for starters. Do you not read reports when someone flags a post as inappropriate?

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/James-Jenkins/593642943 James Jenkins

            People who flag posts as “Inappropriate” need to fuck off in the worst way…..you cock nozzle…Its just another version of the perpetual whine of the terminally wet and pathetic…

          • Chad Chambers

            Why have the facility in the first place?

            This is an underground blog populated by some very angry people. It is also sponsored by the NZ Truth and it will always be seen as fringe and extremist because of it.

          • Lion_ess

            People like the forum for what it is Chad, rather than for what it’s not. Go away and dribble your editorial advice where it’s needed. (You know, all the other blogs that aspire to having ratings like this one).

        • IWantToBeLikeMallardOneDay

          How can I learn how to do what you do? I admire your work a lot. I don’t live in NZ, so I won’t be competing against you. Can you suggest any literature I can read? I live in China and I’m of your political persuasion. I don’t care if I make money or not.

      • GazzW

        So what do you do for a crust Chad?

        • Chad Chambers

          None of your business. Except to say I am a self-employed exporter. That’s right, I bring money into the country, and not by selling bits of it off, neither!

          • Cadwallader

            Are you a whore?

          • Agent BallSack

            Drug dealer

          • Cadwallader

            Or both?

          • Ronnie Chow

            Exports used stamps.

          • GazzW

            That’s cool Chad. Just enquiring so that we can understand more where you are coming from when you post. You don’t have to justify what you do.

          • Ronnie Chow

            None of your business and now I will tell you something about myself . What a prat .

      • dyannt

        Sounds like you don’t have a blog, Chad, where you have to provide interesting, relevant, researched material on a daily basis, or lose your audience.

      • Bad__Cat

        Can’t cope with reality, huh?

      • Ronnie Chow

        Chad , here’s an exercise program for you…

  • Agent BallSack

    I said it on another post but would like to expound on it a bit more. Is it coincidence that National can govern alone as mentioned by polls earlier in the week and the subsequent posts today in the Herald and the attacks on the Government by other left leaning MSM and parties?

    Lets look at this long weekend – its traditionally a stay at home weekend for most people being in the middle of winter – more people will browse news feeds.

    Green Party – alleges National secretly moving to the right

    NZ Herald – alleges collusion between POAL and right wing bloggers

    Helen ‘Deaf Blind & Dumb’ Kelly – alleges attacks on unions by a VRWC

    IMO this is collusion at the very least to make as much noise and skew polls back to pre ‘National Governs alone’ territory.

    • Cadwallader

      There’ll be huge coverage of the greenie’s conference too.

      • Agent BallSack

        No maypole dancing then? Damn I so enjoy those.

        • Dave

          Ahhh…… The thought of the Green Dancing queen on a Pole, really, Have to be a bloody strong pole. Scarred me for life.

          • Mr_V4

            It will have to be a flax woven pole to be sustainable, I was going to say bambo, but then thought of the Pandas.
            On the plus side the roughage will be good for Wussell and Gareth as it’s easily guessed where this pole has to extend from.

      • GazzW

        It will be interesting to see what sort of conference piss-up the greens will have tonight. I’ll bet there are no $150 bottles of wine served up to the party hoi polloi. Those sort of functions are reserved for the hierarchy.

  • steve and monique

    Would not cross the road to piss on Helen Kelly if she was on fire. Good to see how nervous Cam makes them.,because if you cant control the truth,then try and discredit it.

    • Cadwallader

      Precisely. Kelly ought come to terms with pure unadulterated irrelevancy given she works for trades union.

      • Mr_V4

        Ha ha ha, more chance of simultaneously seeing:
        1) Some flying pigs.
        2) Turkeys basting themselves and getting into an oven.
        3) Trevor Mallard resigning from parliament without a junket or token appointment to go to. (not too disimilar from point 2).

  • Col

    What goes around comes around, nice to see we can stirrer the Union boss up, and get her feathers flapping, this is just the beginning Helen, go get her Cam ha ha ha ha ha ha

  • Troy

    She just needs a decent fuck by a non-left, non-union, non-green, non-labour dude to clear her mind of the BS she vomits forth. She must go to bed at night thinking she has won battles – clearly she has not the logic nor intelligence to win wars tho.

    • Bunswalla

      Good idea. We nominate….you.

      Good onya mate!

      • grumpy

        Above and beyond the call of duty.

        • Troy

          Yup, something that Mallard wouldn’t walk away from given his seedy past – he’d give up his membership to rock on with Helen.

  • Tom

    Helen Kelly is a nothing. Joined the union movement because her old man got her into it,. Never had a real job in her life.

  • Balanced View

    Nothing will get a quicker bite out of Whale than attacking his overinflated ego. As I was reading Helen Kelly’s comment in knew this post was coming.
    Whale – do you really find it that impossible to rise above antagonism?

    • axeman

      Balanced View … that moniker is correct.

      It means you dribble out of both sides of your mouth.

      • http://www.cadlow.co.nz spanishbride

        Nah, he has chip on BOTH shoulders ;)

  • redeye

    It’s concerted alright. Even the little Nelson Mail had a puff piece about our Australian Ginga Socialist over the weekend which was great as I’d just run out of wiping paper.

    Check out the picture. He looks a little different to the guy that got pushed about by a couple of Chinese security guards.
