Bomber Bradbury

Citizen A is online.

Enjoy this episode because it will be my last. I will post my reasons separately.

Challenge: Put up Bomber, or join the NRA

Bomber Bradbury is obviously from the school of political numpties that believe if you tell a lie and get caught, tell it again and hope no one noticed that you got caught.

Yesterday I smashed up his lies:

But if you look at some real facts, not just the one pulled out of his rec­tum you find:

Man­gere: 76% of house­holds have landlines

Mt Albert: 89% of house­holds have landlines

North Shore: 94% of house­holds have landlines

If you go through all of the Auck­land seats, you can’t find a sin­gle one that even remotely matches Bombers fig­ures. So Bomber is say­ing (I sus­pect he invented the fig­ures from his rather large and expand­ing arse) than since the 2006 cen­sus, 40% of House­holds in Man­gere have given up their land­line and 39% of those in Mt Albert have also given up their phone lines.

Yet today he repeats them. Why is it Labour and their mouthpieces and flunkies just lie at the first opportunity?

I pointed out Bombers lies in the comments yesterday. Yet he repeats them. I at least have provided evidence and links he hasn’t.

I issue a challenge to Bomber then, that if he can prove his numbers, categorically, then I will donate the equivalent of a 5 year membership to the NRA to the Mana Party. But if he can’t produce any proof of his assertions then he has to join the NRA for 5 years.

I bet he isn’t man enough to accept this challenge.


Making shit up the Bomber way

Bomber Bradbury is ok… camera, and especially when he is bludging a ride off me instead of taking public transport.

He likes though to portray himself as the most honest and above board media person in New Zealand. I wonder then why he just makes shit up sometimes.

In his tirade this morning to his 5 readers, not counting me, he attacks polls and pollsters and makes this stunning assertion as though it is fact.

Don’s on trying to desperately explain why he isn’t desperate cutting a deal for marginal seats. What the idiot mainstream media do not get (and she certainly doesn’t GET IT) is that National are panicking. Why are they panicking? Because they know the political polls are bullshit, but because the msm rely so much on those warped opinion polls, they are missing the panic that is starting on the right.

Take Auckland as an example, 35% of households in Mangere and other south Auckland electorate’s have landlines, 50% in Mt Albert and other isthmus electorates have landlines, close to 80% in most North Shore electorates have landlines. A decade ago those differences were less than 10% and all electorates had the majority of people on listed landlines, now they don’t and you can easily see by that breakdown in Auckland alone how biased these cheap brainfart telephone polls can be.

But if you look at some real facts, not just the one pulled out of his rectum you find:

Mangere: 76% of households have landlines

Mt Albert: 89% of households have landlines

North Shore: 94% of households have landlines

If you go through all of the Auckland seats, you can’t find a single one that even remotely matches Bombers figures. So Bomber is saying (I suspect he invented the figures from his rather large and expanding arse) than since the 2006 census, 40% of Households in Mangere have given up their landline and 39% of those in Mt Albert have also given up their phone lines.

Bomber doesn’t do his tenuous grip on reality any good by spouting totally made up figures. He should retract his lies and apologise.

But the reality is with Bombers constant ill-conceived attacks on pollsters is he is really just doing the bidding of his paymasters attempting to smear all polls so that Labour can claim they are all in the pay of corporate monsters. To see how this is panning out if you look at Bomber’s rants and then link that to Mallard suggesting exactly that on Twitter you can start to see what the “plan” is.

What Bomber and others like Chris Trotter who loudly whined about polls the other day, neglect to observe is that largely the polls are right with only a few examples of outlier results.

You are who your ad-man is – Part Two

Yesterday I posted about Labour’s new ad-man Mike Hutcheson.

Labour’s crippled campaign manager thinks that you are who your ad man is when he attacked John Ansell and led the charge for personality smears against individuals. Bomber Bradbury launched a similar attack against Cathy Odgers, yet he has stayed strangely silent on Labour’s ad-man and his sexist comments about women.

I wonder now what the two of them think about “Hutch” and his opinion of teachers? I wonder what Sue Moroney will think?

I really doubt Labour’s teacher union funders would support the ad-man’s views on kids and standards:

Too much positive reinforcement and not enough negative reinforcement have taught our children that mediocrity is acceptable. Erroneously they think that doing their best makes them winners. They are more preoccupied with self-esteem and self-indulgence than with selflessness.

They are quickly going to learn that, sometimes, even their best isn’t good enough. How are their delicate psyches going to cope with the shock of finding out others in the world are manifestly better than they are at some things, despite what their teachers have told them.

In our clean little country with no natural predators, we have raised our children in such a way that they are often unable to cope in a world that can be both predatory and harsh. No wonder we have a relatively high rate of youth suicide.

We have become a society that rewards failure, not success. We’ve taught our kids how to hug the trees but not how to climb them. Our kids are taught its OK to fail by not even trying, as opposed to falling short in a valiant attempt.

So Trevor, if the ad men speak for the parties they work for, then how does Labour explain its new policies on education, and welfare?

The Politics of Envy

Bomber’s world view is not one I share, but I actually like the guy. I would actually debase myself and have a beer with him, but he actually got a ripper of an answer from Phil Goff when he lobbed him a vile ‘politics of envy’ patsy question on his left-wing hate speech blog.

If you look at John Key’s comments on the poor choosing to be poor if they receive food parcels and that bugger all would starve to death if he cut off the benefit, does it suggest our multi-millionaire Optimist Prime is out of touch with the reality of poverty for the 40% of NZ who earn less than $20 000?

Absolutely out if touch, that kind of arrogant comment that if you can’t make ends meet it’s a lifestyle choice, is something straight out of Charles Dickens’England.

I think if you look at the list of property and incomes earned by National Party members of Parliament and Cabinet Ministers, you will see people that have a lifestyle that has nothing in common with the people in my electorate who are struggling every week to pay the bill when going through the supermarket check out or are struggling to pay for petrol in tanks of their cars.

So how ‘in touch’ is Phil Goff and Labour. Looking at the pecuniary interests register for Labour’s top 5, they all have property investments, they’re all involved in trusts of some kind, and have rather chunky looking super schemes.  The difference is not income – the difference is where their assets came from. For Labour, it nearly all came from being career politicians.

Hon Phil GOFF (Labour, Mt Roskill)

  • Tower Limited – life insurance
  • Mansfield Towers Limited – Wellington flat company shares
  • Family home and farm property (jointly owned), Auckland
  • House (jointly owned), Mt Roskill
  • Global Retirement Trust Superannuation Scheme
  • Westpac – term deposit
  • Bank of New Zealand – term deposit
  • Kiwibank – term deposit

Hon Annette KING (Labour, Rongotai)

  • Orca Services (R Lind and A King) – management of an investment property
  • King-Lind Family Trust

  • Bozzie Family Trust – property debt*

* Interest rate payable in relation to the debt is less than the normal market interest rate that applied at the time the debt was incurred or, if the terms of the debt have been amended, at the time of that amendment.

Hon David PARKER (Labour, List)

  • Queens Park Mews Limited (shareholder but not a director) – not trading
  • Akatore Coast Forest Partnership (No.4) Limited – forestry

Phil Goff wants to play the politics of envy yet his own front bench seems to be in a far better position than the constituents of Mt Roskill, Prot Hills, New Lynn, and Rongotai. He and his party are weapons grade hypocrites.
