Challenge: Put up Bomber, or join the NRA

Bomber Bradbury is obviously from the school of political numpties that believe if you tell a lie and get caught, tell it again and hope no one noticed that you got caught.

Yesterday I smashed up his lies:

But if you look at some real facts, not just the one pulled out of his rec­tum you find:

Man­gere: 76% of house­holds have landlines

Mt Albert: 89% of house­holds have landlines

North Shore: 94% of house­holds have landlines

If you go through all of the Auck­land seats, you can’t find a sin­gle one that even remotely matches Bombers fig­ures. So Bomber is say­ing (I sus­pect he invented the fig­ures from his rather large and expand­ing arse) than since the 2006 cen­sus, 40% of House­holds in Man­gere have given up their land­line and 39% of those in Mt Albert have also given up their phone lines.

Yet today he repeats them. Why is it Labour and their mouthpieces and flunkies just lie at the first opportunity?

I pointed out Bombers lies in the comments yesterday. Yet he repeats them. I at least have provided evidence and links he hasn’t.

I issue a challenge to Bomber then, that if he can prove his numbers, categorically, then I will donate the equivalent of a 5 year membership to the NRA to the Mana Party. But if he can’t produce any proof of his assertions then he has to join the NRA for 5 years.

I bet he isn’t man enough to accept this challenge.

    Id be interested to know how much NZ on Air money goes his way…….

    Well thats interesting. In March the man himself wrote:

    “But it wasn’t Citizen A that was put up on Red Alerts site Mr Gosman, it was The War on News, the latter is not funded by public funds, the former is but it wasn’t the former that was being posted on the blog.”

    The implication is that Citizen A gets funding

    • Graeme Edgeler

      Public funding and NZ on Air funding are not necessarily synonymous.

    I don`t know why you even associate with the lying piece of uselessness.

    Some people don’t have landlines anymore because they prefer cell phones. Does Bomber know this?
