Local Government Roulette – come play, it’s free

Soon we’ll have to pick from a very shallow talent pool that is the bunch of dodgy misfits that are standing for Mayor in your area. ¬†Here’s one that I found in the corner of the barrel (care of Stuff)

Wayne Young, aka Tamaki Drive Man

Wayne Young

[Occupation] Unknown

Young says he was made homeless after he was forced into a mortgagee sale of his leaky home, an apartment in the Auckland suburb of Parnell. Young could not afford to pay for the necessary repairs and a bailiff finally evicted him from the property in 2010. He is now sleeping in his car. It is the second time he has run for mayor and the honesty he brings to his motivations is refreshing. “To be honest the salary of a quarter of a million dollars for mayor appeals,” he says. But he has policy also. He believes the council is saddled with too many council-controlled organisations costing several hundred million dollars, and believes services can be provided cheaper. Not surprisingly given his background as a victim of the leaky home saga, he also has a focus on building and construction inspections. He says: “We remain sceptical of opponents that offer their visionary finance strategies already implemented and deeply ingrained in the media psyche. And technically the half-million-dollar candidate expenditure potentially comes from the ratepayers. I pray the majority of voters are not so easily taken advantage of under my leadership.”

Lives Homeless, lives in his car.

Big Idea¬†To provide non-profit water, refuse collection and maintenance of sewage, footpaths and roads, and also “proper” building and construction inspections.

Biggest Mistake Losing his house in upmarket Parnell.

What you’ll find likeable¬†Waves at motorists and holds up cheeky signs on Auckland’s Tamaki Drive each weekday morning.

He wants to run New Zealand’s Super City.

Bill Liu arrested, wonder how long before Jones is?

Shane Jones must be a very nervous MP right about now. His benefactor Bill Liu aka Yang Liu aka William Yan aka Yong Ming Yan has been arrested.

Police have charged a multi-millionaire businessman, who was granted New Zealand citizenship in controversial circumstances, with making false declarations on immigration papers and using fake identities to obtain a passport.

Yong Ming Yan – also known as Bill Liu, Yang Liu and William Yan – was supported in his citizenship bid last year by Labour MPs Dover Samuels and Chris Carter, and National MP Pansy Wong.

Police arrested him last Saturday as he was about to board a plane to leave the country.

He appeared in Manukau District Court, and is facing 12 charges in relation to false declarations on his immigration papers, having false passports and using deception to gain citizenship.

My understading of the case is that Pansy just wrote a letter. Dover Samuels and Chris Carter will be a little nervous but Shane Jones will probably be in a conference with his lawyers today and praying that Bill Liu doesn’t squeal like a piggy.

Which President?

There are plenty of useless Facebook apps and this one isn’t particularly useful but I have eff-all else to do when it popped up as an invite from someone so I gave it a go.

The app is Which President are You? and you get , as is usual with these things, to answer some silly questions.

Anyway as you can see I am Andrew Jackson and the advice given is sage if you happen to want to cross me. I think the quiz is very accurate.

If anyone gets Obama take yourself out the back and shoot yourself in the head will you.

Whaleoil is Andrew Jackson

I was browsing through some comments on MP’s Facebook sites when I came across this little gem.

Facebook 'Kick a Ginger' campaign prompts attacks on redheads

Kick a GingerThe kid who started a “Kick a Ginger” group on Facebook is being investigated by police after reports of attacks on redhead children.

Nearly 5,000 people joined the online campaign which urged members to “get them steel toes ready” for a day of booting this week.

As usual bleeding heart liberals are blaming none other than a recent episode of the cartoon South Park, in which a young character called Cartman describes people with red hair as evil and soulless.

The Group appears to be gone.

No worries, you can join in these Ginger support groups;

D H-C writes an entire article about people's Facebook status

Deborah Hill-Cone has written an entire NZ Herald article about people’s Facebook status changes after the election. The VRWC seems to get quite a lot of mention and I am in the second paragraph except, Deborah, daaaaaaaarhling, I said I was as “happy as a pig in shit”. Bloody sub-editors ruining good articles in the interests of political correctness.

Still at least WOBH gets its full mention, perhaps the subby is a little thicker than most.

Deborah tries to apply to join the VRWC, she wouldn’t qualify as a full member because a) she has lefty friends, b) we ask you, not the other way round;

Still, I should be grateful. I was only feeling moderately chuffed about the Nats’ victory – given everything else that is going on in the world it seems a bit academic – until I read Trotter’s column which was enough to make me want to rush out and sign up for the VRWC (Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, doncha know). My Facebook status has said “Deborah Hill Cone is toired” for the last three days. I am going to change it to “Deborah Hill Cone is bloody delighted.”

And that was because Chris Trotter was being an onanist.

Moana Mackey and her Facebook photos

I wonder when they will learn that Facebook isn’t private. I’ve added the text but the photo is of Moana Mackey and her pussy.

Key ahead in Facebook race for voters

Key ahead in Facebook race for votersNational Party leader John Key appears to be winning the battle of cyberspace, with almost three times the number of supporters on the same social networking site as Prime Minister Helen Clark.
Since beginning his Facebook page…
[NZ Politics]

I all other things Clark is behind so it stands to reason she is also behind in the Facebook stakes.

I wonder when she will get that “L” is for Loser not Labour.
