A call to immigration – Part Two

You're FiredYou may remember my original call to immigration on the 13 November. I certainly do. This was the call where “Christine” decided to abuse and slag off our new Prime Minister to me.

I blogged it and did nothing more. Contrary to the story the union are floating round, I never made a formal complaint or did anything other than blog this case of extremely foolish politiciking by a immigration staff member.

Unfortunately for “Christine” it seems that there are many people above her in Immigration and certainly many MP’s.

I have heard today from an impeccable source that “Christine” won’t be working for Immigration for terribly much longer. Several long meetings have been held about her inappropriate customer interface skills.

A note to assholes out there, never, ever piss of the Whale.

If I had a photo of “Christine” I would add her to the trophy wall beside Brenden Sheehan and Winston Raymond Peters, 63, unemployed of no fixed abode.

Another import proves Labour doesn't take Botany seriously

Labour has selected their new Botany candidate to replace disgraced candidate Brenden Sheehan who infamously threatened to come around with the rather rotund Muliaga boys and give Whaleoil the bash.

Despite the threats I asked Brenden Sheehan to step in the ring with me and he failed to do so despite the offer a $1000 and a scholarship for the lard-asses. He still has failed to front though he does lurk around here from time to tme. There is still time Brenden, 22 days to be precise.

Anyway I digress. There must be something unique about Labour imports from Mangere because they have selected another Mangere resident to campaign in Botany. At least this one doesn’t live over the back of a cemetery.

And he is just what we need in parliament too! Another bloody academic.

Gooooooooooooal!

Brenden SheehanWhaleoil scores!!!! Brenden Sheehan (Breasel) has quit as Botany Labour Candidate.

Whaleoil 1 -? 0 Axis of Weasel

The Labour list, I hear, is out, perhaps that is the reason? why
Breasel has quit rather than another “sick relative”. What chance his
family member’s illness was contrived in the face of Labours bad
polling and Sheehan’s likely rotten list ranking?

Mind you with predicted power outages this winter Brenden is probably hoping to cash in. Sucks to be a relative of his but.

So Breasel has gone. Rumors are flying that Raymond Huo, a Chinese lawyer, will run in Botany.

Huo – who describes himself as a Highly Unique Oriental – has close links to disgraced Labour candidate Stephen Ching and acted on his behalf – from what I hear on a pro bono basis, although that has yet to be confirmed – when Ching was mired by allegations of corruption and sleaze.

It sounds like Labour have gone from mook to crook in Botany.

 

Breasel at it again

Helen Clark must be wishing she never selected Axis of Weasel member Brenden Sheehan (Breasel) for Botany. Almost every week he opens his big gob and shoves in both feet. This week is no exception.

libel
1) n. to publish in print (including pictures), writing or broadcast through radio, television or film, an untruth about another which will do harm to that person or his/her reputation, by tending to bring the target into ridicule, hatred, scorn or contempt of others. Libel is the written or broadcast form of defamation, distinguished from slander, which is oral defamation. It is a tort (civil wrong) making the person or entity (like a newspaper, magazine or political organization) open to a lawsuit for damages by the person who can prove the statement about him/her was a lie. Publication need only be to one person … While it is sometimes said that the person making the libelous statement must have been intentional and malicious, actually it need only be obvious that the statement would do harm and is untrue. Proof of malice, however, does allow a party defamed to sue for general damages for damage to reputation, while an inadvertent libel limits the damages to actual harm (such as loss of business) called special damages.

Example 1: Push Polling (http://brendensheehan.blogspot.com/2008/05/interesting-post-by-whaleoil-today.html)

Brenden SheehanLabour’s sacrifical lamb in Botany, Brenden Sheehan has a rather unhealthy disrespect for the law. When he’s not threatening to bring the Muliaga musomaniacs round for a cup of tea and a sing-song he’s libeling (http://brendensheehan.blogspot.com/) one of the most respected polling companies in New Zealand.

Sheehan begins by damning yours truly with faint praise but quickly goes down hill. He begins by citing his in-depth knowledge of the ‘legal game’ to claim perfectly benign questions like “Should the Government cut GST on food?” are in fact “leading questions” aimed at “rarking up the punters” with “inflammatory language” in order to boost John Key’s popularity.

LIBEL 1: Accusing a polling company of asking leading questions to solicit a response is a serious allegation. Such behaviour would breach ethical guidelines in a pretty significant way and would also severely damage the company’s reputation.

LIBEL 2: Even if the questions were leading, you have to ask what they were leading to. Breasel accuses Nielsen of using these questions to “rark up the punters” in to supporting John Key which is simply not true – I’ve seen a transcript of the questions and the PPM one came before the policy issues.

In a stunning display of ignorance, Sheehan then goes on to claim it is the responsibility of polling companies to ensure those taking the poll are ‘informed’. He spuriously suggests the following as a non-leading question:

‘if you support a reduction in tax on petrol would you be happy to pay toll fees on major arterial roads to fund future traffic needs?

This mix of stupidity and lying all leads up to something much bigger. In the final sentence of his post Sheehan drops the p-bomb: push polling. He directly accuses Nielsen of push-polling – an activity that would require them to register as a third party and/or have their costs included in the election returns of parties they are push-polling for. Push polling is an activity banned in some parts of the world and looked down on almost universally. Now Brenden Sheehan is accusing a highly-respected polling firm of doing it in return for cash for one of New Zealand’s largest media companies.

Fairfax Media and the pollsters in question will be taking Breasel to the cleaners we suspect and just as well. It’ll be difficult for any more of the Muliaga clan to eat themselves to an early grave on a bankrupt beneficiaries weekly income..

Unionist tipped to go up against Wong in Botany

Unionist tipped to go up against Wong in BotanyUnion worker Brenden Sheehan – who was the spokesman for the family of Folole Muliaga after her death last year – is expected to be the Labour Party's candidate in the new East Auckland electorate of Botany.
Mr Sheehan will go…
[NZ Politics]

Brenden Sheehan, the corpse cuddler, (learned well from Dear Leader) will more than likely be contesting Botany for Labour against Pansy Wong.

Sheehan has been shopping himself around the electorates and he doesn't even live in Botany.

It will be fun baiting this bozo up close and personal.?
