A lesson for the MSM: Stop pimping the poor

Further to my posts from yesterday, here, and here, and with the help of the commenters and the Tipline, I would like to show Anna Turner from The Press that she doesn’t really have to aspire to take “Pimping The Poor” crown off Simon Collins.

Just about every time you look, the stories don’t stack up.  Either they are Labour Party (or Green Taliban) ringers, or the people paraded as an example of how the government is failing the most vulnerable in society falls apart when some non-cursory attention is directed their way.

I have already torn the assertions that  AJ McIlroy and Anne Bovey are unable to find an affordable place to live apart.  I also have torn their assertions that they are dirt poor apart.  And so, today, we continue to expose that AJ McIlroy and Anne Bovey are nothing more than attention whores and professional victims with a public trail of destruction in their wake.

Just a little Googling could have saved you some professional and personal embarrassment Anna.

You could have avoided this:

Here are some basic checks you should have done.  First, publicly available Tenancy Tribunal records:

Followed by publicly available bankruptcy records:

Before I carry on, Anna, there is absolutely no doubt that these people can’t find a place to live.  But you pitched it as being a failure of the system, aka the Government, to help these financially poor people.

Stop it.

Just stop it.

Ok, let’s carry on.

Let’s discover where some of the money that they aren’t paying to their landlord (and goodness knows who else) is going.

Let’s start with booze.

That bottle didn’t come from a 4 pack either.  Check top left of the photo.

Now, they have at least two cats.  Which isn’t really a responsibility you need, with food, flea collars, inoculations and vet bills.  Not when you can’t even pay your rent.

Next:  Fags

That’s one of those “cheap” Zippo lighters.

Oh, speaking of Playboy, when you can’t afford to pay rent, you really don’t want to have a hobby like collecting branded Playboy paraphernalia:

Question.  If you can’t pay your rent, should you own and operate a top of the line smartphone?

Or perhaps more than one?

Note the beer in his hand.  Is he ever seen without drinking alcohol of some kind?

It’s pretty clear these people aren’t poor because they have no money.  They are poor because they have spent the money they have irresponsibly.

On top of that, Anne is a bit of an attention whore

Yeah, AJ, great job!

I don’t think Anne “missed Christchurch” very much at all.  What she missed was all the Government handouts.

Yeah, I think that’s put the pressure on Anne.  I’m sure Housing New Zealand would love to have you as a tenant.  They’re chomping at the bit.

Anna, just don’t Pimp the Poor.  And if you insist, make sure the story actually holds water.  Because these people can’t find anywhere to live because they are part of the feral class.  But worse:  they also expect to live a life with smoking, drinking, pets, lots of children and operating top of the line smart phones while at the same time taking advantage of people by not paying their bills.  They have enough disposable income for tattoos, body piercings and jewelry.  They just choose to not pay for the essentials of life, while having plenty of money for luxuries.

Next time, if you absolutely have to Pimp the Poor again?  To prove how Christchurch isn’t having enough Government support after the earthquake because of lack of housing, or whatever, do your homework first.

    Lovin your work Mr. Slater. I knew there was something wrong with this story (other than it was written at all)

  • unsol

    This is why you deserve a public service medal Cameron. If only we could do the same to every person budging off the nett taxpayer – bar those faced with genuine circumstances beyond their control (which always precludes pregnancy, ESP those who get pregnant whilst facing financial hardship).

    I saw we the taxpayer demand these people get charged with fraud.

    Booze, ciggys, smartphones, computers, sky etc are all luxuries that only those not feeding off the taxpayer’s tit can afford.

  • Agent BallSack

    I have no doubt there are people who require help in Christchurch however – These are not them!

    • Mr_Blobby

      We now know why he lost his job. Probably turned up for work with a drink in hand .

    This post will be remembered come Election time when Liarbour go on about the poor and welfare.
    Where are you Socialist Cindy?

  • Cadwallader

    Brilliant: I foresee a new worthwhile institution: “The Whale Oil School Of Journalism.” Tried and failed industry hacks need not apply.

    • It’s gets better. Wait for the 5:30 post.

  • Cadwallader

    PS I was right! The creepy bitch does have tatts.

    • Gazzaw

      They obviously have a family deal at the local tats & piercing parlour.

  • GregM

    Could someone please inform them they are now famous on Whaleoil too.
    Pass the popcorn and wait for 100+ highly intelligent comments from them and their mates. I feel a thread of epic proportions coming on :-)

    • Agent BallSack

      You mean bastard. If I had an anonymous facebook account I would do it!

  • Mr_Blobby

    “18 Year old daughter with turners syndrome” Is it me or is 18 the age that welfare support cuts off for children.

    Blond here not so long ago but 35 your taking the piss surely looks more like 55.

    These bottom feeders have absolutely no shame and look at ridicule they have just heaped on there kids .

    This family disgusts me to.

    • Saccharomyces

      Well, a life of hard drinking, smoking and drugs takes it’s toll! Perhaps the taxpayer should pay for chemical peels – after all, looking ones best is a core human right, regardless of how you’ve abused youself, and it’s only fair that the tax payer should bear the burden! /Sarcasm

    • Richard McGrath

      Taxpayer is now paying for removal of tats for prisoners…

    • SerSydney

      Nah…19

  • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

    Whale Oil – This is what you call journalism bro!! My respect for you is growing by the minute…You have stripped them bare!!

  • Tony V

    The thing is the stupid bitch seems quite proud to have her pathetic life plastered all over the page for all to see. The great unwashed horde will tend to agree with her as they see themselves in the same situation. This sort of shit actually secures the votes for those poor ignorant class of savages who support Labour.
    Fuck this winds me up, the inter-generational welfare dependency, alcohol and tobacco abuse. (I only say that as you would have to be off your nut to go there). Fuck fuckity fuck!

  • Doug

    Trouble is there is very little investigative Journalism in NZ, the two stand outs would have to be Whale and Ian Wishart you would struggle to find many in the MSM.

  • blazer

    great work….absolute gold!!

  • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

    Tory Bros – Don’t forget, Sheep’s social justice tax will be paying these kind of parasites…so get ready….

  • Peterkar

    Bravo! Great Stuff!

  • Lion_ess

    All credit to you Cameron (although you missed the Playboy Bunny bedspread on the bottom bunk).

    A great advertisement for WFF (Working for Families). These breeder mongrels represent what Working for Families is all about. Two dumb fuglys breeding six new fuglys, who can each breed another 6 and so on, and get paid for doing it. When will it stop?

    Working tax-payers can’t/don’t have six kids, but these welfare-paid oafs can. Why does New Zealand want more of these and less of the former?

    • Mr_Blobby

      The shit hits the fan when we can’t TAX or borrow enough to fund it all.

    Nice one…

  • Sponge

    It looks like a fucking zombie in the 2nd photo. Christ – who would tap that? I don’t care how much woodstock you have it would still be like rooting roadkill.

    • Mr_V4

      I gave you the 1 downvote just for thinking about ‘tapping’ that. :-)

      • Lopsy

        My God, where are your minds FFS you guys. How can you look at any of this and think of SEX. Heard of a Glans? It’s that shiny part just below your fringe.

    • Richard McGrath

      You’d probably have to thread your way through the genital piercings…

  • DoomAndGloom

    Thanks Cameron, I really hope this gets some traction, but I doubt it. Just a standard lower class family (which isn’t meant as an insult at all) who constantly have their hand out expecting to be looked after without doing their part. People like this is the reason we have to pay so much of our hard EARNED income in taxes, but they wont give a shit, in fact, they will find this funny. I’m just hopeful that our current govt, will be our next govt as well, so that these people wont become the norm.

  • Lopsy

    LOL big time. Coffee all over the keyboard almost. Thanks Whale for the context. Now I know why Drunken Duncan is on his affordable house in Auckland crusade. I live in ChCh and I see plenty examples of self righteous “me” pig behaviour all the time. On the roads, at work, everywhere…They say adversity brings out the best in people. Really?…

  • Lopsy

    And by the way, NZ is full of cretins like this. Whilst my daughter sweats on her debt going through uni to become someone this society needs this pork is wondering how to engineer her next rum and coke. Is this what Michael Joseph Savage had in mind?. I suspect not since I can’t imagine he would’ve envisioned a society where people would have so little self respect

  • pukakidon

    Why oh Why are the MSM so bloody unprofessional and lazy? They are absolutely pathetic.

  • cruiseyman

    Was surprised and impressed that the majority of comments on this ‘article’ on Stuff yesterday were from right thinking folk with brains and eyes in their heads. I commented twice, one of which alerted to the Tenancy Tribunal link I saw on here. Was amazed they posted it. Have just checked back on Stuff and mine and loads of other comments have disappeared and the posts are now overrun with some silly bitch wendy who surely must work for them. Very annoying but I guess that’s communists for ya.

  • J.M

    Fantastic work here Cam. These people do not deserve a single fucking cent of public money. Fucking lazy scum.

  • Grizz30

    This is why I am not on Facebook. It is far too easy for my private life to be thrown all over the internet. Goes to show that most of these hard luck stories splashed around the internet are covered in Bullshit.

    • Honcho

      Only if you share it publicly like these pieces … its almost as if they are proud of who and what they are.

      • Cadwallader

        It is definitely “what they are” and not “who they are!”

  • Mr Sackunkrak

    Did I read that right, they kicked the 18 year old out? Just when the benefits run out. Charming.

  • Richard McGrath

    A good reason to appoint a budget controller to each beneficiary – paid for from that benefit – who holds total control over the spending of that money. Bennies should also lose their voting privileges until such time as they walk away from the trough.

  • Richard McGrath

    Stirling work Cam, perhaps someone from the Whale Army could research one high profile bludger each week. I bet they all waste their money like these two tossers.

    They are the worst tenants, they missed rent payments, place was a mess inside and out – cars everywhere, eventually tenancy tribunal kicked them out after a lengthy wait with them playing the system!
