There was a bit of a furor around the place when the muppets at GayNZ thought the Bebo of Bill English’s son was fair game. Eddie at the Labour party client blog the Stranded leapt to the defence of GayNZ. The solution here is to play hardball. Over the coming months we’ll be looking at publiclly accessible social networking pages of Labour supporters, Labour MPs and depending on the response from some client blogs, the children of Labour MPs. It’s time to get even.
This bebo page was brought to my attention a wee while ago. It belongs to James Barnett, a self confessed Labour party member and one of the few Labour party members who still supports Russell Fairbrother. In his comments section he boasts that Michael Cullen “knows his name” and that he knows Cullen’s (ninth) wife. In another part of his Bebo page he admits he tries to meet “as many politicians” as possible. Here’s a kid with one hell of an ego.
Unfortunately, his ego doesn’t match his political savvy. He also professes his hatred of ‘nigger music’ and his love of anything that is not ‘nigger’.
It’s not just ‘niggers’ he can’t stand. On Herr Barnett’s cultural hitlist emos or ‘fukn losers’ and threatens ‘some serious verbal abuse, telling ‘emos’ to ‘get a fukn life’.
He also proudly displays his membership of a group called Free Zimbabwe. Pretty benign until you find the gallery promoting the white supremacist Ian Smith who imprisoned the entire leadership of the black nationalist movement. Smith was once quoted saying that colonialism was a “wonderful thing” and that he didn’t believe in black rule of Zimbabwe “not in a thousand years”. A ‘nigger hating’ egotist with a penchant for white supremacists.
Is this the best Labour can come up with?
I bet Russell Fairbrother is ecstatic that this little twerp publically endorses him. Does this mean that Russell Fairbrother also is a big fan of racism? Not only that young racist James is also an office holder in Young Labour.
On another note this site carrys no authorisation from either James, Russell Fairbrother’s financial agent nor from the financial agent of the Labour party. This may well be the first case of a website needing all three. You see it isn’t a blog, so it needs James’ authorisations. It also promotes Russell Fairbrother and so is attributable to his campaign and needs to be aithorised and accounted for and because it carries the full Labour logo several times as well as Labour’s web address several times it needs Labour’s financial agents authorisation and also needs to be attributable to their campaign.
I bet Annette “Full Moon” King never even thought sites like this would be caught.
