    Hamilton’s Mayoral race looks interesting too with Lisa Lewis offering her talents to the city. I wonder if she will capture the woman’s votes.

    Fantastic to see Whale taking on the CoCB in Albany. I wonder which bottle Williams reached for when he heard the news …

    So is the current Mayor a clown?

    Is he a cock?

    Does he drink Industrial amounts of alcohol EVERY day?

    Does he drink and drive? Will he get reported?

    Is he known for having done anything positive on anything, or for anybody else?

    Will the Whale get more votes?

    When will Williams realise he is his very own worst enemy, (well apart from the Whale!)

    Yes this could be a problem for Andrew. It may mean he actually has to say or do something and we all know what happens when that happens.

    Andrew my advice is to sit tight and wait and see. Don’t do anything at all, just yet.

    Yes he will and that usually silences the vocal and they join the scum that call themselves politicians, hijacked by the bureaucracy until the next election when all the excuses are trotted forth.

    Is that the future for Whale??

    I’m all for holding politicians to account, but I don’t want the job of ensuring Whale never, ever, pisses on a tree :-D

    Good luck to him! This is the first political campaign I’ve heard of in a long time that’s resurrected a yearning to get involved. Alas, distance pretty much precludes it, but if I can be of any help…

    Let me understand this whale claims (to his insurance company) not to be able to work however somehow applies for the fulltime job as Auckland City Councillor. Not sure he’ll do his court case any good with this stand.

    On the other hand this action might just prove that he lost the ability to reason.

    (St)Inky….it will do my case with the insurance no harm at all. They canceled my contract with them illegally. At the day they did that anything I did after that became moot. I have fought hard to get well, including coming off the drugs their doctors made me take.

    Rex, any thought an ideas are welcome.

    I’ve seen Cameron Slater on that opinion show on Prime a few times. Anyone seen it? Martyn Brabury and Tim Selwyn or anyone else who’s mad enough to turn up. Citizen A, they call it. It’s like a v-log/v-blog. I can’t tell if Slater is taking the piss or not. It’s like he’s playing the role of disowned but polite mutant-child of the wealthily insane. The other guests look at him like he’s an angry bear, scared that if they say what they really think, he’ll rip them apart. Good TV.

    Take pity on poor Blowhole the Clown as he battles his enduring depression by maintaining a relentless harassment campaign on Andy Williams.

    Steven Pinker, How the Mind Works (pg 364):

    Summary of seven hospitalised amoks (who ran amok) in Papua New Guinea in 1968:

    I am not an important or ‘big man.’ I possess only my personal sense of dignity. My life has been reduced to nothing by an intolerable insult. Therefore, I have nothing to lose except my life, which is nothing, so I trade my life for yours, as your life is favoured. The exchange is in my favour, so I shall not only kill you, but I shall kill many of you, and at the same time rehabilitate myself in the eyes of the group of which I am a member, even though I might be killed in the process.

    Blowhole the Clown from Outer Space?

    As opposed to the Clown From Campbells Bay? Er…

    ??

    Normally you’re a bit more incisive, paul. You don’t seem quite yourself.

    BTW I really enjoyed that special you did the other week on Andrew Williams. Fuck it was funny. The guy is such a wacked out plonker of the first degree, isn’t he. As you said, in various ways, throughout your hour-long special.

    Anyway, take care paul, good to hear from you again.

    Reid, Blowhole the Clown is a wacked out plonker of the first degree, and a slob, a useless pest, a hopeless blob of self-loathing… perhaps you admire those things and want to have his children.

    Whale. Brilliant my man. A loose wheel, but a tiresome advocate for the underdog and justice. How can I contribute?

    Well paul I do admire Cam in many ways but not in that way.

    I also observe that that post is rather crude and vulgar, and could be a bit of a problem were the IP fingerprint to be traceable. But I’m sure it’s all OK.
