More dodgy dealings at the BSC – Fail Rule #19

By now you’ll know I’m no fan of El Presidente Patrick Lee-Lo and his union cartel the Building Services Contractors [BSC].

Only last week he was exposed for complaining about franchises yet operates the Chemwash franchise out of the BSC’s office with his travelling sidekick Marja Verkerk. You may also be surprised at learning Verkerk set up the Carpet Cleaners Association of New Zealand Inc – with the head office… wait for… yes same address as the BSC.


As always the tip-line continues to provide a rich source of new scandals about El Presidente.

Looks like Paddy and Marja set up a new company just before Christmas called the Master Cleaners NZ Ltd. How nice you might say. Hermmm.

Now the BSC’s original name was the Master Cleaners Association of New Zealand Inc. Until they changed the name back in 1993.

Maybe their PR advisers suggested they quietly change the BSC’s name back in an effort to stem members’ growing concern about the level of heat focused on the cartel’s activities? 

Another option is El Presidente and Marja Verkerk are actively looking to destroy the BSC and take control of the government contracts the BSC cartel currently has tucked away?

It’s about time the BSC’s National President Brian Young or Council Member Robert (Bob) King follow up on their Special General Meeting of 3 November 2011 and follow through on the Rule change. Just in case you’ve forgotten here it is.


Whoops, look who signed it… El Presidente himself and Marja Verkerk submitted it on behalf of the Society.

Take that in the chook.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
