Michelle Boag is a Lying, Poisonous Scumbag

Tonight on Close Up Michelle Boag was outed for the lying scumbag she is. She told Sovereign Insurance that she had 28 people supporting Bronwyn Pullar’s $14m claim against Sovereign Insurance.

Among the 28 was the then leader of the National Party, John Key. Key denies he was involved, which means Michelle Boag lied.

This isn’t a surprise. Michelle Boag has always used the little lie to get what she wants. She is a nasty, manipulative woman who first turns to the lie, and then the threat to get what she wants.

In 2009 at National Conference Boag was promoting Wira Gardiner for the board and to be President. In her inimitable way she let the media know that the Prime Minister wanted Wira as President. Knowing what a liar Boag was I fact checked her, and called her out by repeatedly blogging about Boag’s lie. The inevitable happened, the truth came out, Wira had to deny the public stories and he was not elected to the National Board.

Michelle Boag’s attempt to blackmail ACC into another vast pay out in exchange for silence over a mistakenly sent email has bought down one minister, bought about a defamation action by another, and stopped National’s local government reforms in their tracks. This is a step too far, and if she isn’t pushed by the party hierarchy then party members should tell her firmly she is not welcome when they see her at any National Party event.

Tonights Close Up show vindicated what I said from the beginning about her methods. I blogged about how these two had done a standover on an insurance company, and tonight we found out that the insurance company was Sovereign.

What concerns me is how many other companies Michelle Boag has threatened to get her own way and how many other names are on pieces of paper, used by Boag to give the impression she was connected.

One could argue that the use of these documents to blackmail insurance companies and government departments is in fact a very large fraud.

Michelle Boag is a cancer on the body politic of this country. She needs to be excised. Along with her long list of acolytes and supporters. She is as popular as herpes and as lethal as cancer.
