Guess who wrote this about me?

You will be surprised who wrote this about me in a President’s address to members in the monthly newsletter:

Some of you may have read comments on Cameron Slater’s “Whale Oil” blog prior to Christmas. Like me you probably thought – “Why such an unusual name?” Well as it happens it is an appropriate name for this blog – consider some facts about whale oil:

Whale oil is obtained from the blubber of whales. Whale oil was used as a cheap illuminant, though it gave off a strong odour when burnt and was not very popular. Until the invention of hydrogenation in the early 20th century, it was only used in industrial-grade cleansers because its foul smell and tendency to discolour made it unsuitable for cosmetic soap.

So in short, Whale Oil comes from fat; it is cheap, is unpopular, stinks, discolours and is unsuitable for anything good. An appropriate name for this blog site.

Can you guess?


Patrick Lee-lo, President of the Building Services Contractors

    Arse! My money was on Gary Parsloe – but the use of quite a long & difficult to spell word like hydrogenation should’ve been my warning…. go get ’em tiger

    Am with Red, Parsloe came to mind first….

    Fantastic Cam to make the Presidents newsletter, these pinko scum destroying NZ are starting to get worried, as they should… Dodgy is becoming the first thought for most when the word union comes up….

  • maninblack

    this is going to be mint viewing.

  • Agent BallSack

    He’s obviously never run the words together and said it all in one continuous expression. WhaleoilbeeFHOOKED!!!! It still surprises acquaintances when they do it for the first time.

  • Rockfield

    Is that an electronic monitoring collar around his neck ???

  • Time For Accountability

    Patrick if we want to debate integrity.

    Where are the BSA Financial statements for the year end 31 March 2008?
    This organisation seems to mimic the appalling lack of Financial Reporting responsibilities that unions exhibit.

    Your members should be asking you to account.

    I think perhaps an analysis of your published results membership fees is warranted spanning several years.

    NFWAB if your house is not clean.

  • Time For Accountability

    Is the declining line by his hand a downward trend of membership?

  • Timboh

    Well I’ll be fucked! I thought the name of the blog was Whale Oil Beef Hooked.

  • Gazzaw

    I thought that a Li-lo was a an item dating back to the 50s, often over-inflated and full of hot air.

    • parorchestia

      They also let you down when you most needed them.

  • LionKing

    What a fuck knuckle. He’s sitting there smiling away knowing he’s sitting on over $1.8m in cash reserves and does nothing for his membership except travel the world attending “conferences” on the backs of $20,000 membership fees.

    The Registrar of Incorporated Societies is now investigating the BSC cartel and so they should. Members are aghast at the incompetence of their CEO, particularly as the Govt has now changed the Government’s Procurement rules that allow free competition to the government tendering process.

    Looks like Paddy is the captain of a sinking ship, but can’t see through the self inflated sense of entitlement that is clearly evident.

  • Annie218

    Hit a raw nerve, did you?

  • Hillary Green

    Oh dear, this man should give up now. Obviously he’s going to be played with just like those hapless little seals as the WO bashes them about. Going to be great watching… I just hope the BSC Board are watching this as this is their reputations are now at risk for allowing their CEO to become a laughing stock.

  • DLM

    Looks like he’s uses some blubber to twist the ends of that fury thing on the top of his lip. Who in 2013 has a mo like that? That aside, I’d be very interested to see what the BSC intends to do with the $1.8 million, especially as they don’t actually do anything.

    Is the BSC just a Labour union front?

  • Patrick

    I was about to put my money on one Peter Goodfellow

    • Random66

      ha, only a fool would antagonize WO when you have secrets to guard.

  • Time For Accountability

    Is that a declining membership graph by his hand?

  • Mighty Max

    Paddy, the decietful liar, good on you, you will get yours when it all comes out. How can you run a member organistaion with such little integrity…no wonder members are ready to walk as soon as your precious little lies unfold and the “must be a member to secure government contracts legislation” is changed. I pity you Paddy, life must really be pretty crap for you right now!

  • redeye

    He may have written it but I doubt he could read it. There is too many ‘L’s in Whale Oil.

  • Corner_shop_not

    Speaking of Blubber – Patrick Lee-lo, best you Lay-LO as you don’t seem short of much blubber yourself there patty.
    WO – you know making some massive blows to these types when this sort of comment is best they can come up with.

  • steve and monique

    What the fuck is that thing on his top lip?.Must be a mirkin,because he is a complete cunt.

  • A+random+reader

    I was going to suggest Garry Parsloe, but the text you quoted was too articulate to be from Garry.

  • bobby

    The Building Services Contractors Assn is one of the worst scams the left have ever come up with. I can’t believe it hasn’t been all over the news – they are little different to the mafia in terms of having to pay them to bid for certain contracts.
