Bomber Bradbury

Citizen A online

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?

Cactus for Act?

Apparently, news to me, but Audrey knows everything:

Cathy Odgers, the author of the acerbic website Cactus Kate, is expected to be approved today as an Act candidate – one of the reasons sitting MP¬†Heather Roy is likely to today announce she will stand down at this year’s election.

Cathy Odgers is a corporate lawyer who lives in Hong Kong.

She is back in New Zealand and this week attended a private surprise party for former leader Rodney Hide in his favoured Newmarket haunt, the Mecca cafe and bar.

Prime Minister John Key also called in to the party for a couple of hours and spoke in glowing terms about Epsom MP Mr Hide, who was deposed as Act leader by Don Brash in April. The Act board is meeting in Auckland today.

Cathy Odgers’ blog, Cactus Kate, has been scathing about people in the party she believed had been disloyal to Mr Hide and undermined his leadership.

However, after the coup in April, she called for the infighting to stop and for the party to unite behind Dr Brash.

I just bet now that Heather Roy cutting and pasting furiously from Cactus’ blog and putting names to posts in an attempt to out her inveterate rooting. I say this out of my understanding that the person behind the outing of David Garrett’s criminal past was Heather herself, after he told a few home truths about her to her face in an ACT meeting.

Unfortunately for Heather this would not be a wise course of action ad I know Cactus is a follower and adherent to Whaleoil’s Rules of Politics in particular Rule 2, and she has more than enough stories about Heather Roy’s duplicity during her time as an ACT MP.

I reckon that Cathy should be an MP, she would be the most honest out there even if it up sets people. Since I have a track record of rating politicians when they are seeking office I thought I would do my usual pros and cons:

Not a grumpy old man
Lawyer with actual considerable business experience
International track record dealing with private and public sectors
Pots of cash and many ex boyfriends with pots of cash
Subscribes to the “No Dickheads” Rule
Business Roundtable approved candidate with free market purity
Conflicts completely with conservative Banks/Brash attitudes
Proven and loyal ACT voting record

Little patience for arseholes of all types of political persuasions
Subscribes to the “No Dickheads” Rule
Self-confessed rooter with terrible wandering eye and dubious taste in men
Promotes the use of alcohol and drugs
Conflicts completely with conservative Banks/Brash attitudes
She doesn’t have a pink Remington 870 pump in 20g
Will she take the pay cut? And does she really wish to be in a list position high enough to be elected?

She would be an honest politician, they are few and far between. If you are looking for an endorsement then you can do no better than those of her enemies.

Bomber is frothing before lunch-time on a Saturday. The man who willingly supports the truly hate-ful and racist Hone Harawira is shuddering like a dog shitting razor-blades at the mere thought of the prospect of Cathy Odgers telling it how it is. If Bomber was half the man that Cathy is he would stop sniping from the sidelines and participate in¬†democracy. if he believes in the bro-letariat uprising that the Mana party allegedly represents then he should man up and put his name forward with other intellectual¬†luminaries¬†like Sue Bradford and John Minto and Willie Jackson. He won’t¬†because¬†he is a coward.
