Ken Livingstone

Boris ahead with the bookies

Boris Johnson is clearly the favourite with the bookies.

Ken should have learned not to lie. The modern political environment doesn’t take kindly to liars.

Ken lies, Boris nails him

The Telegraph

Boris is running a great campaign. Ken is a lying hypocrite, but being Labour he thinks everyone loves him and wont mind he lies, or is a hypocrite.

In a fractious session hosted by radio station LBC 97.3, Mr Johnson denied suggestions he had used a company to channel his media earnings to avoid paying income tax – a claim that he has levelled at his Labour opponent.

Mr Livingstone accused the mayor of having “the same arrangements” for dealing with his media earnings as he had, insisting he had used a company called Finland Station.

But Mr Johnson called the claim “lies”, adding: “I have never used a company to minimise my tax.

“There was a TV production company which I was briefly a director of but I certainly never … I have always paid full income tax.”

Later, the row between the pair continued off-air when a furious Mr Johnson swore at his Labour opponent.

Travelling in a lift to the top of the LBCD building to be photographed, the Mayor shouted at Mr Livingstone “it’s all ——- lies, it’s all ——- lies”.

Boris calls him out as a liar, and defines the election as a race between a man who resorts to lies at every opportunity. As we have seen in Australia voters don’t like liars, especially Labour liars. Trevor Mallard might find this out soon too.

Why Ken Livingstone can’t cut fares – in his own words

Boris Johnson has a great piece of negative campaigning (pdf) against Ken Livingstone.

This is how you do negative campaigning properly.

An(other) left wing hypocrite

The left wing are hypocrites, generally and in particular when it comes to taxes. In New Zealand Matt McCarten a hard bitten unionist who rails constantly about evil bosses failed to act as he wishes other bosses to act and failed to pay his workers PAYE and Kiwisaver contributions.

Now in the UK Ken Livingstone is being questioned about some dodgy tax practices of his own:

English: Ken Livingstone, Mayor of London 2000...

Ken Livingstone has insisted he is not avoiding tax after accounts suggested he had saved at least £50,000 by paying himself through a personal company.

The Labour politician, who is hoping to replace Boris Johnson in this year’s election for Mayor of London, has previously attacked tax avoiders as “rich b——-” who should “not be allowed to vote”.

The Sunday Telegraph disclosed that Mr Livingstone earned £232,000 in 2009, the first year after his defeat to Boris Johnson at the last mayoral election. Companies House documents showed that the money, which came from Mr Livingstone’s speaking engagements, and work as a radio presenter, was paid directly into a new company that he set up.

Mr Livingstone and his wife, Emma Beal, are sole shareholders in the firm and are able to split his income evenly, even though it was earned entirely by him. She is paid from company funds as Mr Livingstone’s “assistant”.

Accountants said the arrangement appeared designed to ensure that Mr Livingstone paid corporation tax at 20 or 21 per cent, rather than income tax at up to 40 per cent.

However, speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, Mr Livingstone said: “I’m not avoiding tax.

Will they also hire Blue State Digital?

It looks like Ed Miliband is intent on following the lead of Phil Goff…to oblivion:

Ed Miliband has hired one of Barack Obama’s senior advisers as Labour steps up its fight to defeat Boris Johnson in May’s London mayoral elections.

Labour has been encouraged by recent opinion polling to believe that Mr Johnson, once the overwhelming favourite to be re-elected, can be beaten their candidate by Ken Livingstone.

The latest survey – by YouGov – put Mr Livingstone two points ahead of Mr Johnson in what will be the main political battle of 2012.

Polling experts now claim the race is “too close to call” – even though Mr Johnson led by eight points just two months ago.

Mr Miliband has called in Arnie Graf, 68, whose community organising skills were honed in Mr Obama’s heartlands of the South Side of Chicago, to search out Labour voters in unpromising territory for the party, particularly London’s outer suburbs.

Many of these areas are Conservative strongholds – but because of how the race works, every individual vote counts.

What’s the bet that Labour in London will have a Mallard type hypocrite who goes around talking about evil Americans helping Boris, knowing full well they have their own evil Americans helping Red Ken.

The Idiots Guide to Social Media and Anonymous Blogging

The leftwing elements of the blogosphere apart from a few select individuals like to maintain secrecy. They blog anonymously because generally they don’t want people to know who they are, or work in an area that blogging would not be tolerated. A good example of this as we all know are the anonymong bloggers at the Labour/EPMU funded off-shore lapblog The Standard. They like to maintain the pretense of being independent but almost all of their bloggers either work for Labour or the EPMU. One of them even faked his resignation from the blog because of a supposed conflict of interest but continues to blog under the guise of “Guest Post”. His little problems with his job will arise shortly.

Another blog run by Jordan Carter who claims consistently to be independent of Labour yet runs their lines consistently is Just Left. You may remember Jordan Carter, he is the guy who reckons he will never work in business because he finds trade immoral and Labour’s absentee Hunua candidate.

Well enough of the preamble, let’s get on with the lesson. This lesson is about how NOT to anonymously blog and skite about it in Social Media. Such silliness just leads to your embarrassment.

Since we are talking about Just Left let’s look at the case of anonymong “Dolan”

“Dolan” wants to be anonymous. “Dolan” wants to appear independent. However “Dolan” is a complete fool. “Dolan” wants to be anonymous for professional reasons, but still wants the perceived status of blogging.

However “Dolan”, the numpty, has set it up so when he posts it appears on his Facebook newsfeed, despite blogging under a pseudonym. We have here what is known in the trade as a “Homer Moment”

You see the problem with Social Media is that the whole premise of sharing your information is in direct contradiction with the anonymong blogger trying to hide his identity.

For example;

“Dolan” wrote this post about the Super Ciy, Paula Bennet and Rodney Hide.

At the same time due to his setup of posting his blog posts to his wall on Facebook this appeared.

Dolan is Enzo Giordani

 

Thus revealing to us all that “Dolan” is in fact Enzo Giordani, Labour’s northern region chair and EPMU organiser. This also confirms the very close links between the top levels of the Labour Party and the EPMU. In fact one could almost say that they are synonymous.

Enzo Giordani is DolanWhat we also know now too is the EPMU are very much in the forefront of the organisation of the opposition to the Super City.

This blog has now shown the close links between the EPMU and Labour on not only the Standard but also now Just Left. The Labour Party President and EPMU General Secretary needs to come clean twice now. First he needs to come clean wearing his hat as the Labour Party President and explain how the Labour Party funds and operates two blogs and that he approves of Labour and taxpayer funded staff blogging “anonymously”. Then he needs to wear his EMPU hat and explain how the union and Labour are in fact seperate organisations when all the evidence thus far suggests they are branches of one another, sharing resources across organisations and across blogs.

Lastly the left really needs to wake up when it comes to Social Media. They were caught with their pants down over Twitter and now they have been caught again.

This blog and other will also reveal this week another anonymong blogger who really shouldn’t be working where he is given the slanderous and defamatory remarks he has made about his “customers”. It really is about Trust.

Public Service Announcement for Hunua Voters

WOBH is providing this announcement of a meet the candidate meeting with Labour Candidate Jordan Carter as a public service.

Jordan is currently waiting to meet you all at the exclusive Ford’s Bar in Central Auckland, some 35 kilomentres from the nearest boundary of your electorate.

Jordan is campaigning hard for the workers this election and for that reason he has decided to hold a meeting where it will cost you $40 in petrol just to get there and at least $7 bucks for a local beer at the exclusive Ford’s Bar.

Where in the world is Jordan Carter?

Axis of Weasel memeber Jordan Carter just can’t shut his yap.

If it wasn’t bad enough that the only reason he was selected for Hunua is he white and gay and lives in Wellington then there is his very vocal past where little gems like;

“If one was to believe everything that the Coast Action Network has to say, no Government MP should set foot within 50km of the feral bastards.”– when asked about West Coasters

“You know what, I hope I do scare you – enough to give you a heart attack and get you out of circulation” – responding to criticism

“I’m sure missing out on a business lunch or half a pair of trousers is going to make them all apathetic. They quite clearly do not care about my money.  And to be blunt, it’s payback time.” – when talking about Labours 1999 tax increases

“I wish Peters would die” – on Winston Peters

“Tiresome.  I thought wanking was natural. For some its a way of life. Care to address the question” – wanting some focus in a debate

“Libertarianism doesn’t work because it would restrict people’s choices and opportunities to those that their parents could deliver them, They’re not entitled to choice at anyone else’s expense.” – Jordan Carter clearly confused on Liberterianism

“Neither is on my cards.  I will simply change the Labour Party to suit me.” – Jordan Carter on Labour harbouring right wingers like Phil Goff

“Cullen: someone whose prime role in politics is redistribution.” – Jordan Carter on Michael Cullen

“Indeed.  And having embarked on a political career, one might expect to be careful about what one said in a public forum.  The fact of the matter is that I have stated many, many times that I am here as Jordan Carter, Esq. Now someone has shat on me (sp) from a great height for their personal jollies.  Good on him.  I hope he’s happy about it.” – Jordan on someone who knows how to cut and paste his words to remind him how completely bloody stupid almost everything he says is.

Now to be fair to Jordan he has embarked on a butt covering exercise in order to try to nullify the more extreme of these views. However he dropped himself in the crap yet again due to his penchant for committing to the internet before he has engaged the extremely tiny socialist brain that he has.Now not only does he still think that “trade is immoral” but now he has clarified his non-retraction by adding “I’m not interested in money or profit: I don’t derive any satisfaction
from working for shareholders or an overseas corporate owner.”

Now back to the premise of this whole post which is Where in the World is Jordan Carter?

He is the candidate for Hunua.

He lives mostly in Wellington but has a doss in Central Auckland.

He works for a non-profit in Wellington

and he has a wonderful picture of Hunua on his website touting for people to vote for him in Hunua…….or does he? There it is below…lovely isn’t it?

Hunua or not?

Well actually no he doesn’t. The wonderful photo of Hunua gracing the top of his website is in fact anywhere else but Hunua. Here is the same photo uncropped by Jordan on iStockphoto.

Not Hunua

Oh dear.

The question remains though.

Where in the World is Jordan Carter?

It seems he is everywhere except Hunua and based on all of that plus his intransigence over his colourful statements of the past there is little doubt that wee jordan should perhaps chuck it in in Hunua.

Imagine this prize prick controlling or assisting to control the levers of power and dipping his slippery socialist fingers into your wallet for some pet project of his.

 

 

Sonny Thomas ponies up…well sort of

Sonny ThomasSonny Thomas, quite possibly the ugliest gay man in the world, has accepted my challenge, except he didin’t.

On Clint Heine’s blog he was full of bravado and volunteering the services of the absentee candiddate for Hunua Jordan Carter.

Of course he doesn’t have the courage to actually accept the challenge on my blog so he goes skulking around the blogosphere under an assumed name ponying up on someone elses blog. Pity for Sonny though because the blog he chose to accept was Clint Heine’s and Clint apart from being a core member of the VRWC is also the head of the Blogger’s Union and so he let me know of the poof’s acceptance.

Additionally Sonny tried to change the venue to outside parliament. Unfortunately Sonny you don’t get to make the rules. I suspect he changed the venue because being a fawning socialist he is also a broken-arsed, dirt poor useless sack of shit.

So in the interests of getting his sorry useless arse to Auckland I will pay his airfare up. because of his bravado though I won’t pay it back because after winning he should have some cash to pay his own way back.

Fortunately for Sonny he is already well beaten with the ugly stick so my fists won’t make too much of a change to his mug.

So Sonny if you accept this challenge for real how about leaving a comment indicating it. Also let me know what day before the 23rd you want to travel so I can make the bookings.

Know your Weasel – Jordan Carter

Jordan CarterNow that Breasel (Brenden Sheehan) has been dispatched it is time to focus on another member of the Axis of Weasel, Jordan Carter or shall we call him Carteasel.

Carteasel is a funny little animal normally know to frequent burrows in Wellington, which is certainly a long way from Hunua. He has however now moved to Auckland which is still a substantial distance from Hunua. Though I don’t think Carteasel will spend too much time campaigning, it is kind of a lost cause in that seat to be a Labour candidate.

The best way I think to trap the Carteasel will be to use his own words….Carteasel does have an awful lot to say and thankfully most of it is online and in caches for all the world to see.

The good folk in Hunua will certainly want to eduate themselves as to what they may elect as will the rest of New Zealand if Carteasel gets himself a decent place on the list. Being a member of the Rainbow branch certainly enhances his chances.

Now onto Carteasels own words.

“If one was to believe everything that the Coast Action Network has to say, no Government MP should set foot within 50km of the feral bastards.”

Jordan Carters view on West Costers.

“You know what, I hope I do scare you – enough to give you a heart attack and

Jordan Carter complaining about being quoted out of a newsgroup.

There are plenty more where those come from and then of course there is blog. Feel free to email me any pearls of wisdom from Carteasel.

Finally I’ll just leave you with this lovely picture of Carteasel.
