Top Cunliffe Strategist Steps Down

The top strategist who engineered the failed coup of David Cunliffe is stepping down.

Earlier today Martyn Bradbury announced his retirement as “editor” [snigger] of Tumeke blog, and moving on to greener pastures.

On March 1st I’m launching something new, consider it my media blow for a more egalitarian New Zealand. That announcement will be made next week on Tumeke.

Until then I’ll see out my month here, albeit a wee bit less frequently due to organising everything for March, but it is time for me to take the next step and that next step begins in 17 days. 

Kia ora and thanks for reading. I never expected you to agree with everything I said, but it was a humbling privilege that you took time out to read it.

I’m very excited with what I am about to launch. Beware the ideas of March.

His retirement has been well signalled with his expected move into full time real estate.

I hope his new venture is as successful as his coup plotting.

    If a ranting lunatic falls in a forest does anyone hear it?

    “…a more egalitarian New Zealand”.

    Translation – a more left-wing New Zealand with more bludgers funded by other people’s money.

    It never ceases to amaze me that people (who would see themselves as intelligent) think that left-wing policies will result in nirvana and unicorns flying over rainbows.

    I don’t know of anyone who actually took time out to read it. Would rather bang my head repeatedly against a brick wall TBH.

  • BJ

    Maybe he’s going to launch a weekly newsletter – ‘The Real Truth’

  • In Vino Veritas

    “Excited by what I’m about to launch”. Well, he’d have to be after the failure of the dotty, barely viewed little blog he contributes to. In fact, he has a history of failure whilst contributing his views to dross media platforms. Perhaps he’s being forced to shift to new digs? Cardboard box under the Grafton overpass perhaps?

    • Agent BallSack

      Hopefully its himself…off a tall building.

  • blokeintakapuna

    Maybe joining 7 sharp?

    • Gazzaw

      What as BIT? The fourth horseman of the Apocalypse maybe?

  • Mickrodge

    He will be missed…

    By the 7 readers of the Tumeke Blog site.

      Are you counting their split personalities?

    Fuck me he’s another salesman passionate about his product according to the link supplied. The most overused and annoying phrase since OMG.

  • Fresh from being David Cunliffe’s Senior Coup Strategist, it would seem that Martyn and another un-named union leader whose first name rhymes with “cat” are about to launch a coup against Hone Harawira for the leadership of the Mana Party.

  • ‘ retirement as “editor” [snigger] of Tumeke blog,’

    Now now WO, you mustn’t use words like (snigger) after comments like that. It makes me think of PaePae who litters his blog prose with chortles, snorts, sniggers and other ridiculous bits and bobs.

      As a close not so white friend of mine pointed out to me a few years ago…

      ‘In the interests of keeping ya teeth in ya head hazzy..ya do know that the word for a sarcastic chuckle is snicker not snigger…right?”

      • Bunswalla

        A snicker is a chocolate bar. A snigger is what SB means, why on earth would you pull her up on that? It’s just being niggardly.

        • Hazards001

          Pull your head in. It was meant to be a bit of humor as it’s a true story. Guess I should have placed a LOL at the end for wannabe moderators huh? I always thought the word was snigger and used it. My mate and I were in a bar with workmates at the time when I said “snigger” in reference to a story being told. Some of the people at the table took offence and he rescued the situation with his above comment. And it would appear a lot of people especially USA types think the word is snicker. Personally I don’t give a monkeys.
