Shane Warne

How long before he trades her in?

Shane Warne has asked Liz Hurley to marry him:

The couple were having a romantic meal at the exclusive Old Course Hotel in St Andrews, Scotland, when the spin bowler popped the question.

The couple have been attending the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship and had been seen kissing on St Andrew’s Old Course earlier in the day.

Mr Warne, 42, posed the question in front of guests in the hotel’s Road Hole Restaurant, according to a report in the Daily Mail.

The residents-only restaurant was packed with other VIPs and past Dunhill players at the time.

The unlikely couple have only been dating 10 months but there has been speculation that Mr Warne was planning to propose to the 45-year-old model and mother-of-one.

Warne's new beauty regime 'tiresome'

From the NZ Herald:

Elizabeth Hurley is finding Shane Warne’s preened new image “a little tiresome”.

The 46-year-old model-and-actress – whose cricketer lover has stepped out looking wrinkle-free and considerably slimmer in recent weeks – is reportedly concerned the Australian sportsman has taken his new beauty regime a little far.

An insider told the Sunday Mirrornewspaper: “It’s not Elizabeth who has been telling him to diet and look after himself more – it’s all down to Shane. Shane’s been asking Liz about age-defying procedures like fillers and Botox and she’s found it all rather bizarre.

“She loves the fact he’s dropped some pounds but now it’s all getting a little crazy and she’s wondering what he’s going to do next.

“Liz doesn’t want to lose the man she’s fallen in love with but all the girly chat is getting a little tiresome. Her friends are finding it all highly amusing.”

She probably wants him to grow his mullet, get his gut back and root anything that moves to make him more attractive.

Oh Warnie, what have you done

Oh dear Lord, is he even still a man?

Shane Warne is a girly man

He was photographed looking noticeably slimmer, more muscle-bound and decidedly tanned on the set of Gossip Girl in New York.

Sporting a tight blue t-shirt, dark glasses and a chic new hairdo, he was almost unrecognisable from his former incarnation as a beefty, louty, knockabout bloke from Down Under.

During his years as a famous Aussie cricketer, Warne had declined to take much of an interest in his physique or appearance, except for the odd foray into blond hair dye and hair “renewal”. If he grew slightly overweight thanks to too much beer and too many meat pies, it didn’t seem to worry him.

But it seems those days are over.

Since he met and started dating Hurley, he has morphed into an altogether more sophisticated creature.

Gone is the bad dye job and spiky hair. Gone is the pot belly. Gone are the trainers and high-street tracksuits.

These days Warne seems to be styling himself, or being styled, on a cross between James Bond and a Ken doll.

Thanks to the attentions of Hurley he says that he has lost 22lb and feels better than he has in years. He appears to have had his eyebrows reshaped and has even admitted to using moisturising cream, defiantly proclaiming: “Yes, I’m still a man”.

No Warnie, you aren’t….you’re G.A.Y.

Key in the middle

John Key is used to being in the middle and yesterday he stood firm and spanked Shane Warne’s bowling to the boundary for $100,000 tot he Earthquake appeal from Fujitsu.

I note in the video that Phil Goff was in his usual place, standing on the sidelines, irrelevant to proceedings.

Help me win this auction

The Clown of Campbells Bay, Mayor Andrew Williams has an auction up on Trademe for a charity event. If you win the auction you get to spend an hour and a half with the mad Mayor in a flight simulator.

Now I can’t imagine that there is anyone willing to do this in such a confined space so as a community service for you all Whaleoil will take one for the team and try to win the auction.

I’d like my readers to help contribute though for the good of the nation and for the charity,which is Westpac Rescue.

Remember Whaleoil does this so you don’t have to.

The Real Body Painting Shots

The Clown of Campbells BayThe Clown of Campbells Bay recently got himself body painted in a desperate attempt to make the news

North Shore Mayor Andrew Williams is purportedly an ardent supporter of the awards and fronted up to this year’s launch with his own torso painted.

“The Body Art Awards are simply breathtaking – a spell-binding, fun, zany, outrageous experience put together by some highly creative and exceptionally talented New Zealanders,” he said.

In line with that, especially the zany and outrageous part, he got himself painted. Whale Oil Beef Hooked has been leaked the exclusive first draft. Apparently the mayor vetoed this and went with a different design.

Diddums!

Anger over ‘super mayor’ commentAuckland regional mayors have reacted angrily to a speech in which Prime Minister John Key appeared to give a nod to John Banks as a super city mayoral candidate. [Stuff Politics]

The Clown of Campbells Bay, Andrew Williams who also masquerades as the North Shore mayor is upset and spitting the dummy over John Key’s speech at the National party Conference where he appeared to endrse John Banks for the mayoralty of the new Super City.

Well colour me surprised that Andrew Williams is upset. He gets upset if the wine runs dry.

But can he really expect any other comment when he spams all of National’s MP’s and other party members at 9:31pm and 11:21pm and 11:26pm the night the Auckland regional conference began and coincidentally the same night my “mysterious” fax attack from the North Shore City Council arrived.

Headers of the emails show categoricially they were sent from North Shore Servers at those times. I wonder if my LGOIMA request filed this morning for all fax logs and door access logs for North Shore City between the hours of 8:30pm and 11:59pm Friday 5th June 2009 will show anything interesting.

All I can say to Andrew Williams and Penny Webster is Diddums!

Why don’t they do what Len Brown has done and hire a Labour functionary to run their campaigns for them. (More on this later)

 

Does anyone recognise this handwriting?

Andrew Williams is a ClownThis fax (click for pdf view) arrived on the tipline tonight at 10:38pm. The header of the fax says it comes from the NSCC…..I wonder what that could mean?

Does anyone recognise the handwriting?

What was Andrew Williams, the Clown of Campbells Bay doing tonight at 10:38pm?

Was the Stop banks wine taking a hammering?

Is this yet another reason supporting the Super City?

I wonder what a LGOIMA request of the fax logs of the NSCC will show?

Does this constitute harrassment using a communications device?

Does anyone really think I would be upset by this?

Ahhh the level of discourse from the left and the congenitally stupid or drunk is simply astounding. The only thing they have been able to attack me on is my appearance. So much for the inclusive left.

BTW my hair is not permed. Never has been, never will be. It’s all natural.

Oh and you can get a Whaleoil t-shirt from my Store.

The Mendacity of The Clown continues

The Clown of Campbells BayThe mendacity of Andrew Williams, the Clown of Campbells Bay and Mayor of North Shore City knows no bounds.

He is quoted in the North Shore Times as saying “The Royal Commission’s recommendations were tossed into the bin without any consultation and I can fully appreciate how betrayed the mana whenua are feeling,”

Thankfully though the North Shore Times reporter is on to The Clown’s mendacity by pointing out that in 2002 Mr Williams was told his comments were “racist” by fellow councillor Tony Holman after questioning Maori involvement in North Shore City Council decision-making.

Mr Williams told a committee meeting he was fed up with too much attention being paid to the Treaty of Waitangi and on promoting Maori involvement.

“This is not going to help New Zealand get ahead and people are sick of it,” he said, labelling supporters of special consultation processes for Maori “divisive lefties”.

He lies again with this comment;

“Since becoming mayor, rather than just endlessly talking about process and treaty principles, I have strived to actively engage with local iwi to get better outcomes for Maori and for our city. The council is very supportive of this positive partnership approach.”

Oh really!, That’d be why North Shore City has all those Maori Ward seats…..what, they don’t have any?….can’t be, Andrew Williams have “strived to actively engage with local iwi”.

The man is a liar, a sot and a fool.

The Clown of Campbells Bay – Class A Hypocrite

The Three Stooges of AucklandThe Clown of Campbells Bay, Andrew Williams, who also masquerades as the Mayor of North Shore City has been prominent in the press recently commenting on the Super City. He also trundled down Queen Street lending his support to the Hikoi that was demanding Maori representation where there is none presently.

Mayor Williams it would appear is a recent convert to Maori democractic rights, though he isn’t so committed to the idea that he has any Mari Wards in North Shore City.

In fact in February 2002 he described such an idea as “seperatist”.

This is a strange turn of events so I thought I would email the Mayor to see what the real story is. I haven’t had a reply yet.

Here are the questions I asked of him;

  • Do you still stand by your statements made on 28 FeBruary 2002 that Maori electoral wards are “separatist”. These were published in the North Sore Times Advertiser at the time along with statements from Andrew Eaglen who believed they are a threat to democracy.
  • If you do still stand by those comments in 2002 what made you attend the Hikoi and state the opposite and which position is true?
  • If you have resiled from those 2002 statements what was it that made you change your mind?
  • Are you a hypocrite?
  • If not a hypocrite, then what? A liar perhaps?

I don’t expect he will reply, but perhaps Mr Orsman might like to ask the same questions of the Clown of Campbells Bay in order to clarify this murky situation.
