WAYNE TEMPERO INTERVIEW: KIM DOTCOM’S FORMER BODYGUARD SKEPTICAL OF POLITICAL MOTIVES

Sean Plunket speaks with former bodyguard of Kim Dotcom Wayne Tempero, about his time with Dotcom and his views on Kim’s motivation for starting The Internet Party.

In a telling interview, Tempero says he used to respect Dotcom, but has since changed his opinions of him after seeing him buy himself favours, along with his way into New Zealand politics.

“His motives are to save himself and have nothing to do with politics in New Zealand,” says Tempero of his former employer.

Wayne agreed to come on the program this morning to have a discussion, I would thank him for doing so and I would welcome him to the program now..


 

Sean: “Wayne very good morning to you”

Wayne: “Good Morning”

Sean: “Wayne can you first tell me, I just want to go background, you are, a body guard right? How long have you been doing that?”

Wayne: When I heard that music, I laughed because it’s pretty common knowledge I looked after Whitney Huston for a while when I was working for the Royal family of Brunei, she was a very hard woman to look after, I tell ya, it’s not like the movie. Pardon?

Sean: oh so the movie was partly factual?

Wayne: Yeah yeah can be, some of it , the funny part I remember that when I went to pick her up in LA, in one of the private jets, she came up the stairs and she knew who I was because she had been told we would be meeting her there, and she had a bit of a smiley face, and she said you don’t look like a body guard and it was a play on the film I have never forgotten it, but she was a hard client to look after.

Sean: Alright Wayne, now how long have you been in this business?

Wayne: 24 years

Sean: and before that?

Wayne, Um before that, I was in Dunedin umm, like a lot of Dunedin people, when I learned, I went to the freezing works, Burnside freezing works,  I was on the kill floor when in those days you made an awful lot of money and you were probably making moirĂ© than doctors actually and I learnt my trade, what I did was umm I learnt with a guy  called Jeff Todd in Dunedin and he’s the master hand to hand combat instructor for the worlds special forces believe it or not and he still lives in Dunedin and I was lucky enough to train with Jeff for over 15 years before I took the opportunity with him to do contracts overseas and got into this profession.   Read more »

Questions for Nicky Hager

via NZ Herald

Nicky Hager is a sanctimonious little prick who thinks that him publishing stolen emails is legitimate. He hasn’t liked it when Mike Hosking or Sean Plunket got up him.

Labour’s Immigration policy this week looks quite different to last week, and different to the week before that

David Cunliffe decided to dog whistle on immigration, and ever since his policy, clearly developed in the pub on a pissy beer mat.

Labour’s Immigration policy this week looks quite different to last week… and that’s different again from the week before that… check out the below…

SEAN PLUNKET:        So you’re going to leave family reunification completely out of it?

DAVID CUNLIFFE:     Yep, we’ll leave family reunification out of it.

But that’s not what he said last week…

Labour is taking aim at work visa and family reunification categories as it eyes ways to limit the flow of migrants to the country.

The party has come under fire over the idea, which first surfaced in its monetary policy as a way to help curb interest rate rises and house prices.   Read more »

Helicopter Hater Update: Vern’s Vendetta

Readers will know all about arts luvvie and Labour Party activist Vern Walsh.  He is to troughing what Jesse Owens is to athletics, Mohammed Ali is to boxing, Sir Don Bradman is to cricket, and Babe Ruth is to baseball.  A man with his snout so deeply in the trough, he’s made it all the way to Spain.

Vern is the chairman of the Auckland Council’s dodgy funding board that has cut funding to the Auckland rescue helicopter service by over $1,000,000 or 70% to give to Dame Rosanne Meo’s philharmonia.

He’s the guy who admitted to Sean Plunket that the board doesn’t have any criteria about what to fund and not.  They just make it up as they go along.  And they are careful not to have any register of what free arts tickets they get or their other troughing.

But Vern’s not content with just cutting the helicopter funding he controls.  Now he’s trying to stop anyone else from funding the rescue helicopter either.

My deep-cover spies in the Mayor’s Office report that Vern has been making a nuisance of himself, hanging around the Ngati Whatua Room, ever since his councillors made him realise Aucklanders wouldn’t stand for their rescue helicopter being cut to fund more $85,000 arts junkets.

When the mayor managed to fit him in on Wednesday, Vern tried to tell him it would be illegal for the council to fund the rescue helicopter service.  Not even Brown fell for that.

So it looks like Vern skulked off for a leak to the Horrid.   Read more »

Meet Helicopter Haters #3 & #4 : Vern Walsh and Penny Sefuiva

  This is NOT Vern Walsh and Penny Sefuiva, but it is a good example of the Business Class travel Auckland ratepayers have paid for them


This is NOT Vern Walsh and Penny Sefuiva, but it is a good example of the Business Class travel Auckland ratepayers have paid for them

And now for the third instalment of Whaleoil’s exclusive “meet the helicopter haters” series: our old friends Vern Walsh and Penny Sefuiva, who got into trouble as Auckland Councillors in 2006 spending $85,000 on a month-long, council-paid, business-class extravaganza visiting – you guessed it – art galleries, museums and sports facilities in San Francisco, Vancouver, London, Paris, Bilbao, Barcelona, Prague and Berlin. These guys are world-class troughers.

Their extravagance was so over the top that it even drew criticism from then mayor, the hapless Dick Hubbard.

But, as usual, an update of yesterday’s developments:

  • Vern Walsh, the chairman of the helicopter-hating Auckland Regional Amenities Funding Board, gets David Benson-Poped by Sean Plunket on Radiolive, admitting his board uses no criteria for allocating funds and no register of what freebies they receive and from who
  • Rescue helicopter boss and all-round good bloke Murray Bolton responds in the morning by asking the Auditor-General to investigate Vern’s comments and then in the afternoon sues him.
  • While Civil Defence Minister Nikki Kaye has publicly backed the rescue helicopter, there’s still silence from Len Brown and the Labour Party.
  • The Herald carries the story for a second day in a row

There are six more members of the dodgy funding board to be featured but, for today, read this and weep:    Read more »
