Larry Williams

The Huddle at 1740

newstalkzb

I’m on ZB with Larry Williams to do The Huddle with the lovely leftie Josie Pagani who will present the right of the left viewpoint in between taking hurried breaths and run-on sentences.

Planned topics include:

  • Firstly we’ve got the howling of conflict of interest being bandied around over a cabinet minister’s brother being charged with indecency charges against children.
  • Then we’ve had the Team New Zealand chairman resign from the job. It’s going to be a numbers game with the number of people with any credibility leaving in rapid succession.  Dare I say it?  Rats are deserting a sinking ship.
  • What’s up with boxing?  It allows Mayweather to continue fighting when he’s a misogynist wife beater.  No wonder senior National Party figures don’t think there is anything wrong with that.

I’m on ZB with Larry Williams to do The Huddle with Barry Soper.

Our topics will be:

  • There’s been more fallout from the St Bede’s parents thumbing their nose at the punishment given by their school to the oiks who jumped on the luggage carousel at Auckland airport. There have been feeble attempts by the parents to try and mitigate the damage they’ve done by saying that the boys weren’t really at fault….their mates egged them on. They appear to be quite thick this bunch – you wonder where all their money has come from because they feel like families who don’t appear to be  able to tie their own shoelaces!
  • And of course we have the Northland by election to keep us entertained as well.
  • Then we’ve had the Cotton On case which is more confusing than anything as I’m not sure what the staff are being asked to do by the company. It’s also only a negotiation at their distribution centre not ALL their retail staff so there’s a bit of misinformation going around on that one. We’re hoping to get Michael Woodhouse on to discuss the law with us and what can and can’t be done under the rules.

I’m on ZB with Larry Williams to do The Huddle with Mr du Plessis-Allan.  I’ll be discussing things from the right, and Bazza will try and show me why I’m wrong by fighting in Andrew Little’s corner.

Our topics will be:

  • The Sky City stoush over who’s going to fund the shortfall in the upgraded plans.
  • The outrage of the day over the Chatham Rock Phosphate application for mining on Chatham rise being declined.  The company lost 95% of its value following the EPA decision. To say they’re upset is an understatement.
  • …if time, one more, yet unknown topic.

It’s not Monday(!) and I’m on ZB with Larry Williams to do The Huddle with corporate shill Matthew Hooton.  I’ll be discussing things from the right, and Matthew will discuss it from a perspective he’s being asked to provide by someone, unless he’s off the clock.

Our topics will be:

  • Social housing policy.  How this will make much difference at all?  None of it feels like it’s going to make a big difference to either the renters or the taxpayers.  Housing New Zealand will remain the country’s largest land lord.
  • Andrew Little saving the country through small business.  Does small business a: needs saving or b: will save Labour from their slide south in the polls?  Not a lot of vote changing ideas from the new leader.
  • The Eleanor Catton outburst and tantrum at not being worshipped enough in NZ.  Who appointed her as an ambassador?  Did she appoint herself?   Typical nasty Green Party holier than thou type who believes she knows what everyone needs.  Should Canada claim her back?

Boag snatch to fund Sky City blowout?

boag-grinch

There’s a new candidate for who is paying Michelle “The Boagan” Boag and her offsider Cedric “Senile” Allan for their campaign to snatch $2.1 billion in Vector shares from the people of Auckland and South Auckland to give to Lyin’ Len Brown’s council.

Whaleoil still doesn’t quite believe it but it’s overloading the tipline so here goes: The theory is it’s SkyCity casino. Here’s why it could be true.

Since Friday SkyCity has been saying it needs another $130 million from the government to build its new National Convention Centre. Or else it’ll pull out of the deal. The government has to make the SkyCity deal work because all the rest of its convention centre plan is falling apart.

Steven Joyce seems to be saying he’ll open up some of his trough but not for the full $130 million and wants Auckland ratepayers to front up with the rest.  

In a world first, everyone from Lyin’ Len to Dick Quax have lined up and told Joyce to shove it. (The one exception is Cameron “Mr Fiscal Responsibility” Brewer who sounds like he’s had too many nights in the SkyCity corporate box.) Read more »

Who is paying for the Boagan’s $2.1 BILLION snatch?

business woman with lots of money

Everyone smart is running a mile from Michelle “The Boagan” Boag’s plan to snatch $2.1 billion in Vector shares from Aucklanders and South Aucklanders to give to Lyin’ Len Brown for him to build his trainset.

But one question is still be to explored. Who is paying The Boagan, 60? And who is paying her offsider Cedric “Senile” Allan, 102?

These people don’t do anything for free. The Boagan even got Doug Myers to pay her when she was running for National Party President.

The tipline is running hot with theories. Read more »

Christmas Countdown: Boagan Dwarf Three – Michael “Dopey” Barnett

Michael “Dopey” Barnett

There’s still six days until Christmas but the early presents for Whaleoil readers keep on coming.  Today’s gift is a cracker –  the story of Boagan dwarf number three, Michael ‘Mayoral-Wannabe’ Barnett.

Auckland readers will of course know Mr Barnett as the face of the Auckland Chamber of Commerce.  If you don’t really understand what the organisation does, fear not you’re not alone. I can happily confirm their key role is to organise business lunches and breakfasts.   Kim The Clown Campbell is a regular attendant.  The Mayoral Wannabe actually celebrates his 25th anniversary at the Chamber this year.  What better way to party than to steal a cool $2.1 billion off the people of Auckland.     Read more »
