Neil Miller, beer aficionado, comes good with this superb sledge against Andrew Williams.
In 2010, this blog was merciless at exposing the outrageous behaviour of Andrew Williams, whose late night antics included thumping an ambulance officer, pissing on his own council building, late night phone messages and text messages to various political leaders and more. It was almost certainly the confluence of a nasty man’s ego mixed with suspected grog imbibing causing tyrannical behaviour in high office.
As a result, Andrew Williams earned a number of nicknames on this blog, and in wider Auckland politics, including the Clown of Campbell’s Bay, the Cock of the Shore, and the Cock from Campbell’s Bay.
Ditto with Caesar Michael Williams, whose boozy bullying behaviour is a disgrace to the office he holds on the Howick local board.
Today, in National Party circles, we have also witnessed the confluence of a nasty man’s ego mixed with grog, causing tyrannical behaviour in high office. To recap, we have learned that:
Aaron Gilmore failed to attend a National Party dinner, and instead skived off with mates to get quietly boozed away from the members who helped select him onto the National list
The Clown of Campbells Bay, Andrew Williams, has not been noticed since he went to parliament. This is a huge disappointment for Andrew Williams fans as he was the kind of Mayor of North Shore that gave the public a lot of laughs. Read more »
I suppose I can feel a bit chuffed with the Sunday Star-Times article yesterday about NZ First….and Andrew Williams:
No-one too startled that the wheels are coming off the Winston Peters party juggernaut. What has been intriguing, though, is the order in which the wheel-nuts came loose.
One of the highest risk MPs is Andrew Williams. Read more »
Our pinko mate has outed the former drunken Mayor of North Shore, the Clown of Campbells Bay, for being a hyperventilating idiot.
He also had a bad day in the house this week when Jami-lee Ross got up him. Andrew Williams really is a travesty.
At least he wasn’t pissing up against a tree.
David Farrar’s little read travel and arts blog has caused a bit of insurrection in the ranks of NZ First. Can you imagine the chaos if he tried just a bit harder:
NZ First has been embroiled in infighting after a blog slammed the performance of some of its MPs, leaked party emails show.
Internal emails, passed on to The Press, have revealed discord within the party, with Christchurch MP Denis O’Rourke among those attacking their Whip and the party’s board.
The emails relate to a post by website Kiwiblog that used a range of statistics to rank Opposition MPs.
The rankings placed Canterbury NZ First MPs O’Rourke and Richard Prosser in the bottom five for the third quarter of 2012, along with colleague Asenati Taylor.
NZ First Whip Barbara Stewart emailed the rankings to the caucus on October 4.
She said they showed “how others are judging you”.
O’Rourke and former North Shore mayor Andrew Williams hit back, criticising the rankings and Stewart’s decision to email them out.
O’Rourke said the rankings were “not even remotely interesting or relevant” and were “utter nonsense”.
“I find it hard to believe that anyone with any brains would actually take any notice of a stupid Right-wing blog site,” he said.
“If NZ First really thinks this nonsense is important then God help it.”
Williams said Stewart’s decision to place importance on the rankings was “a sad inditement [sic] on you as Whip and of this party”.
“[Q]uite frankly I do not want to receive these ‘nanny’ type sermons from you. Have better things to do than be preached at.”
In response, Stewart warned the MPs that their performance had been noticed by the NZ First board.
“The number of contributions or lack of – that you make . . . is also being noticed. A picture is being created about you!”
Andrew Williams is just annoyed that his precious piss drinking time is now being eaten up answer questions from pesky reporters doing their job. Some NZ First MPs certainly seem to not enjoy the cold hard facts being presented.
I am just amazed that this far into the parliamentary term that Andrew Williams hasn’t been caught pissing on any trees. Perhaps I should up the bounty?
NZ First MP Richard Prosser is making a quick run on Andrew Williams from the class of 2011 for the MP “Most Likely To End Up In The Gutter”.
What he said here of Gang Members may be true but it is also true of NZ First voters and membership. Toss in “old” for complete accuracy.
There was another great sledge
yesterday this morning in the House, from Todd McClay on Andrew Williams…the first 46s of this video is pure gold….the rest isn’t too bad either:
This story serves as a salient lesson for Andrew Williams, that if you urinate in public, it could cost you your life:
Zachary McKee, 27, died after coming into contact an electrified third rail while relieving himself at a subway stop in Evanston, Illinois, last night.
According to local police McKee clambered down onto the track at South Boulevard station and fell onto the rails at around 11pm.
A companion alerted subway security but were too late to save him.
He was pronounced dead less than an hour later at Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston.
It is not clear whether McKee urinated directly onto the third rail but, contrary to popular belief, the practice is unlikely to result in death.A victim would have to be standing extremely close to the electric rail in order for their stream to hold together and carry the charge. More often the stream breaks into droplets, interrupting the charge.
Many of the deaths reported to have been caused by people peeing onto electric tracks were actually the result of stepping or falling onto the rail.
In the American television show Mythbusters a presenter urinated onto an electric fence to prove that there was virtually no danger of electrocution.It is not clear whether McKee was intoxicated at the time of his death.
I’ll bet you a buck he was pissed.
