The majority of attempts to access porn are not deliberate …

Yup, and that last shower I came down in was so refreshing …

There have been more than 24,000 attempts to access pornographic websites in [the UK] parliament since the general election, new figures show, reports Sky News

A total of 24,473 attempts to access such material from computers and other devices connected to the parliamentary network were made between June and October 2017 – around 160 a day on average.

The network is used by MPs, peers and staff.[…]

I guess that is a whole new slant on “sucking on the public teat”

In solidarity with the those in the world’s most despised demographic, WH has decided to ‘come out’ as an old white male. WH enjoys exercising the white-male privilege that Whaleoil provides for him by writing the occasional post challenging climate change consensus; looking at random tech issues that tweak his interest, as a bit of a tech nerd; or generally poking the borax at anyone in public life who goes on record revealing their stupidity. WH never excelled on the sports field because his coaches never allowed him to play in his preferred position on the right-wing. WH also enjoys his MG.

Not sure Tony Veitch should describe anything as “hard hitting”

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.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.

Hoaxes and scams on the internet

Computer keyboard keys with danger sign with words Internet Hoax, Danger of Internet Hoax

Computer keyboard keys with danger sign with words Internet Hoax, Danger of Internet Hoax

Yesterday I fell for a hoax and did a post on it. It happened to me once before so I always do a check online to see if there is more than one website with a similar story. Additionally if I am unsure I will go to the website Snopes as they write about hoaxes and scams on the Internet.  In the case of the post I wrote yesterday, there was nothing about it on Snopes so I thought I was okay. What I should have noticed was that none of the websites that carried the same story were mainstream media sites.

Here are a few of the hoaxes and scams that are  currently circulating that I found on Snopes.

Today’s face of the day is Queen Elizabeth for apparently backing the idea of Britain leaving the European Union (EU).

THE Queen has been hailed as a backer of Brexit tonight after details emerged of an extraordinary alleged bust-up between her and Nick Clegg over Europe.

Her Majesty let rip at the then Deputy PM during a lunch at Windsor Castle, The Sun has been told.

The 89-year-old monarch firmly told passionate pro-European Mr Clegg that she believed the EU was heading in the wrong direction.

Kim Dotcom’s new love Screenshot-Whaleoil.co.nz

Today’s face of the day has found fame in the MSM for the singular achievement of dating Kim Dotcom.

I do not want to ruin her google footprint any more than it has already been ruined by both Stuff and A Newspaper. The less said the better about who she is,what she does or how old she is.

I hope she is prepared for the fallout. It will be a rough ride in more ways than one.

Whaleoil reveals sources

Many many people want Whaleoil to reveal its sources. Some even want to know Cameron’s favourite source. Others claim that after Dirty Politics Whaleoil no longer has any sources, and that they have all dried up. They are all wrong. Today for the first time ever I am going to reveal some of Whaleoil’s sources, including Cam’s favourite one. I hope you can all handle the truth because some of it is pretty hard core and hard to handle. There is no way that I would ever deal with some of these sources myself as they are far too dangerous.

Labour MP Chris Hipkins is calling for gun advertising to be regulated.

Today’s face of the day Chris Hipkins is campaigning for the removal of advertising for a legal business selling legal products, and shows once again Labour’s propensity to chase any passing car. My boss says, “He should stick to drinking pink cocktails and chasing teenage bunny boilers at university.”

Sexist crime and punishment

Spotted on the Trademe Message board today.

Graham Lowe gets caned for commenting on Adern’s physical appearance, while Hilary Barry threatens violence and is congratulated.

Both comments are petty and deserve not much more than rolled eyes and shoulder shrugs, however if the women of this world want to be taken seriously and respected for values beyond their physical appearance, they might like to admonish Barry for the pathetic promise to deliver violence.
The fact that Adern thanks her for the threat shows perfect hypocrisy.

Anybody who kicks me in the shin should expect to be punched in the face.
But then women are allowed to be violent and men are not.

Now hiring: Auckland gossip columnist who will not offend

Poor Pebbles Hooper, if she had only known how this could have all been prevented. I found out the secret to being offensive on twitter and getting away with it last year.

That’s right, if Pebbles had been a contractor rather than an employee she would have been fine just like Rachel Stewart. Pebbles had to resign for pointing out that it was not an intelligent thing to do to accidentally kill yourself and your children by leaving a car running in a garage. If she was a contractor she could have said a lot worse than that. She could actually get away with wishing someone dead on twitter just like Rachel Stewart.
