David Farrar and I along with a number of elected councillors and the Mayor are being threatened with physical harm by a commenter at The Standard:
For the record Lynn Prentice, the administrator, issed this Millsy character with a mild rebuke. If you are from the right of centre and place a comment much less offensive than that you can easily be banned and many are. But threats of assault from left wing commentators are met with a mild rebuke from the “sysop”.
I have been assaulted by unionists before, and threatened by them too. This is nothing. I welcome the attention. If Robert Mills of Palmerston North, a long time left wing nutter who has threatened violence wants to lead the attack on me then he can go right ahead. I understand he has the body of a half sucked throatie so shouldn’t be too much of a challenge. He should however give Mark Gosche a call and ask what happens to unionists to assault me.
What I do not welcome though is the defamatory remarks by author James Henderson who alleges that I apparently have a going rate of $10,000 for attacking unions. I think I will let their comments thread run on that one though and see how bad it gets.
This is an interesting development but I think the rate is far too low, especially now with threats of physical harm.
What I want to know is who I send the invoice to?
But it is quite hilarious that a leftwing blog that once attacked me for being a beneficiary is now attacking me for working. Worse it appears they are the ones setting my rates and conditions!
There is no way I’d do what I am doing for $10,000 as a fixed fee, for something like the Ports of Auckland I’d probably do it for $20,000 after a discount for the sheer fun of union bashing. Ask Trevor Mallard he knows my rate for leadership coups is $30,000. But for $10,000? …good grief I’m not some flea blog struggling for traffic.
