CV cheats

Tricky Ricky Flip Flop CunningCV

by blokeintakapuna

If Tricky Ricky Flip Flop CunningCV was a race horse – he’d be sold for glue.

Claiming he will re-pay secret donations already spent, for the last year’s purpose already had – where he was the benefactor as a result of those donations, winning the internal election – is simply a confidence trick too far.

Especially since he was in Government who created the rules around trusts and the use of donations – he then flouts those Parliamentary rules and only when caught red-handed does he claim there’s discrepancies in the rules between Parliament and the Labour Party, so a review is underway to stop this happening again?

I call bullshit on that CunningCV. His double speak is getting very tricky now.

Claiming he will make up any short fall of funds his secret trust lacks only demonstrates that he already knows his secret trust will be in deficit. Once he returns those secret donations to the people he doesn’t know who donated them, well, it still doesn’t alter the fact, the donations were used in 2013 for an election – which he won.   Read more »

CV Embellishing appears to be Labour Party policy

As we’ve seen with David Cunliffe allowing the “idea” that he has a degree from Harvard Business School to survive for many years, only to claim that was just something that was misinterpreted and he hadn’t quite got around to correcting anyone for a decade or so, CV embellishing is perfectly OK.

But why waste time actually doing something first?  Why not jump ahead and claim you have achieved something before you even did?

About 10 days ago, Newstalk ZB Chief Political Reporter Felix Marwick noted that Christchurch East by-election hopeful Poto Williams’ Wikipedia page had already published the election results:

I have nothing to apologise for

I see my good friend Dr Brian Edwards is all cock-a-hoop about Matthew Hooton choosing to apologise for calling David Cunliffe a liar on radio.

ds

If we put aside the side-splitting irony of a corporate soldier of fortune hitman spin doctor choosing to apologise for lying to a career politician, I did find myself asking: “Why am I not apologising?”

I’ve stopped short of calling David Cunliffe a liar.  Or having lied about working on the formation of Fonterra while working for BGC.  Instead, I’ve asked lots of questions that have exposed David Cunliffe’s fanciful claims that litter his CV.

He’s gone into bat with a dodgy looking document that doesn’t have his name on it anywhere, from an organisation that he worked for over 14 years ago, and claims this is the documentary proof that he worked 8 hours on the formation of Fonterra, at best two years before Fonterra as a concept of conceived of.

Apart from the fact it clearly doesn’t link David Cunliffe to anything, it has always been heavily redacted since it was released.  And yes, forensic analysis carried out by a number of people have thrown up too many unanswered questions for me to back down from the idea the whole thing is a setup.

Why are the Media asleep on this?   Read more »

David Cunliffe releases Confidential information

The Whaleoil team have been hard at work investigating David Cunliffe’s ‘Fonterra’ claims.  Part of this involved contacting the Boston Consulting Group to fact-check the assertions made by Cunliffe on Wednesday.

We presented BCG with the “timesheet” document Cunliffe released to the media, asking for it to be authenticated, among other questions.

A spokesman said

On request from Mr Cunliffe’s office, BCG supplied the letter confirming his employment for external release.  His office was also supplied with an internal record of his employment, which was not intended for release.

(our emphasis)

After seeking further clarification, this was expanded to

‘Spent  time  in  prison’?

Is David Cunliffe’s timesheet shown to us as it was given to him?

Unless we get answers as to why we have a “14 year old document” with a current date and with company names that didn’t exist 14 years ago on it, I continue to have questions about the “chain of custody” that this document traveled through.

I wonder if David Cunliffe could table the original in Parliament?

Can someone at BCL BCG please provide a press release as to exactly what they provided to David Cunliffe.  What format it was in (paper, Excel spreadsheet, scanned image, etc) and by what means it was sent to David (courier, email, fax, etc).

Could we have a statement from BCL BCG that the document, as presented by David Cunliffe to the media yesterday is unaltered from the way it was provided by them?

The worst Cut and Paste job ever

David Cunliffe supposedly released a document that “proves” he worked on the creation of Fonterra. Quite apart from the fact that the name Fonterra never existed until 2001 there are massive inconsistencies in his story.

The Commrce Commerce turned down the Dairy Board’s MergeCo proposal in late 1999 and National said it wouldn’t overrule ComCom. That meant an entirely different approach had to be taken by the two main supplier co-ops, Kiwi and Dairy Group, which only became possible after the change of government, and without letting the Dairy Board know talks were underway.

Therefore, any earlier work done for the failed Dairy Board merger effort was irrelevant for the GlobalCo/Fonterra proposal?

Then there is the timesheet that was presented. The document has been substantially altered.

Here is the start of my analysis of the document as presented.

An analyst and an auditor comment on David Cunliffe’s timesheet

Whale

I haven’t been following the DC thing too closely so my observation might be counter to reality. But, you might like to look at the billable hours a bit more closely.

There are 8 entries relating to fonterra, for a total of 1104.5 hrs. Each has a different code and descriptor, indicating a discrete engagement. Of the 8 descriptors, only 3 seem to resemble reorganisation, for a total of 262.5 hrs or 32 days. The rest is audit or other projects. Is that really credible?

The timesheet also shows a total of 4128 hrs between dec 95 and july 99. Theres about 6640 billable hrs in that time. So what did he do for about 314 days while on the payroll?

Apologies if my math is wrong – I’m doing this on the train. On the surface it just doesn’t look right, and my day job is to look for oddities in plain sight

and

Why is Cunners charging for a 1998 audit on 4th January 1998.

As a retired auditor, I’m sure any audits I was involved with would not have incurred any charges before the event!

Just one more question about that timesheet Mr Cunliffe, if I may?

cunliffe-timesheet-630x501Above, the BCG “Confidential” timesheet as released by David Cunliffe yesterday.   It is offered by him as “proof” of his involvement in the setting up of Fonterra – a claim Cunliffe makes on his CV that is disputed by Matthew Hooton.

I would like to draw your attention to 3 things.
