Jolyon White referred to the Police

November 19th, 2011 at 12:08 pm by David Farrar

The Electoral Commission has announced:

On 18 November 2011, the Electoral Commission referred to the Police for sticker advertisements attached to National Party .

It is the Electoral Commission’s view that the publication of each of these advertisements constitutes a breach of sections 204F of the 1993 because they are election advertisements that do not contain a valid promoter statement.
White may not be the only one who ends up there. Something the media have not reported is that vandalism campaign is continuing.  Whale is seeking the owners of certain vehicles, and the identity of a certain person.
If either of these turn out to be Green Party activists and members, it will not be a good look for them.

    Indeed DPF; it would be such a shame of the Storm in a Teacup came to nowt, and the final week of the campaign was dominated by stories about principled Green Party members doing highly unprincipled deeds.

    Perhaps because it was the Green Party itself that advised the Electoral Commission, and once that happened it was inevitable that the complaint would be referred to the Police.

    Anyone called Jolyon should have his parents referred to the police for silly name crime. :)

    Are you saying that it was the Green Party that made the complaint?

    @ Toad – The Greens must be worried though that the attacks are continuing, even after Russel Norman apologised. It suggests that there is a group on the fringe of the party that doesn’t want the Greens to moderate their stance, which is what Norman and Metiria Turei have spent three years doing.

    And with the expediency that characterises the politically correct New Zealand Police the case will be resolved around 2015.

    Indeed.

    I’m looking forward to toad confirming / refuting whether there is any truth to the rumour that the female sitting on the motorbike registered to Jolyon White and photographed leaving the scene of an act of vandalism against National billboards, is in fact Russell Norman’s EA.

    Of course, if its not true, the rumour should be stopped in its tracks….

    Since the Greenies believe in free love (someone else pays for your pleasure) Elaycee are you secretly hoping the pillion person was another who was getting her jollies with Jolyon while poor old wife/partner was flogging her guts out at the beehive in the service of a better Gaia for us all?

    Shattering stuff. Little eyes too close together creep person may run with this story when the cops uplift his teatape leaving him without an autocue to read off. :)

    Yes I wonder what their cellphone records will reveal? They have probably tried to wipe their computers by now but hopefully most of them won’t know how properly to do that although no doubt instructions are winging their way to relevant people even as I type this along with instructions about what to say if and when contacted but the cell phone records cannot be wiped – oh dear – and what’s the bet the gleeful young lefties have been texting each other madly as they conduct their raids.

    Oh dear. I just hope it can be tracked back to the leadership because this is typical of Green politics. They have tried to publicly paint over this trait of theirs because they have a strategy of becoming serious players. It takes a hell of a lot of lipstick to disguise the Gween pig however and now and again the supply runs out and something revealing like this happens proving to the thinking person once again that a vote for the Gweens is a vote for leadership by fools, idiots and underhanded vandals.

    Its going to get interesting. The Whale is on the tail / trail of more of our gutless green night owls who have been damaging signs. When these little pricks start spilling the beans there could be a few red faces in the green camp. What a pity the election is next Saturday. Bring it on !!!!!

    Oh dear. The path to social equity is fraught with difficulty and unforseen consequences when a cunning plan goes horribly wrong.

    Now then, the story so far …

    1. Jolyon conceives a plan so cunning you could pin a tail on it and call it a weasel.

    2. Jolyon shares cunning plan with girlfriend over a mung bean casserole to evidence his commitment to the just cause and demonstrate that he is deserving of her affections and perhaps more.

    3. Jolyon orders posters from printers.

    4. A mystery operative dobs in Jolyon’s posters to Whale some weeks before .

    5. Whale antennae commence rotation and engages Whale tipline.

    6. Operation Pink Panther commenced (so-named due to the similarities between this clandestine operation and the car chase scene that was the finale in that movie of the same name).

    7. Overwhelmed by the perceived success of Operation Pink Panther, Jolyon senses a new-found importance that leads him to the airwaves on Radio Pinko.

    8. Fellow melons recognise his voice and dob him in.

    9. Some fellow melons appear a bit pissed off and rather than hailing Jolyon as a green Che Guavara, Head Melon berates him.

    10. Jolyon becomes an ex-melon. Feels like Che Guava.

    11. Head melon offers melon army assistance to repair the damage. Now all melons hate Jolyon.

    12. Speculation on charges for criminal damage.

    13. Jolyon’s girlfriend suspended. Will inevitably be ejected from Melon Central.

    14. Jolyon goes on TV. Explains that in this instance, criminal damage is political protest and it is all John Key’s fault. First indications that Operation Pink Panther may not be heading in the direction that Jolyon had intended.

    14. Whale embarks on full-blown search and destroy mission. Tipline running hot.

    15. Tipline sources reveal regos of motor bikes leaving the scene, including high-capacity ozone-depleting two stroke.

    16. One motorbike is traced to Jolyon raising the prospect that when he said he didn’t actually do anything, he may have “mis-spoken”.

    17. Jolyon sacks Chris Faafoi as media adviser.

    18. Reports emerge of a mystery woman pillion passenger on Jolyon’s motorbike, but Jolyon’s girlfriend resides on a different island.

    19. Likely revision of girlfriend status to “ex”.

    20. Whale tipline white hot. Pictures obtained of operatives caught in the act. More regos posted.

    21. Operation Pink Panther referred to the Police by Electoral Commission. Jolyon did not include a promoter statement with his vandalism.

    To be continued …

    BTW, which party introduced the promoter statement provisions and which other party supported it …??

    Leonardo. Will Jackson be making an epic movie of huge scope and passion based on your screenplay and starring Robyn Malcolm as the jilted EA and Anna Paquin as the pillion person anytime soon?

    Say the word and I’ll order my popcorn now! :)

    I was thinking of casting Malcolm either as herself, or as the water woman. I’m inclined to go with the former so that we save on make-up. Weta Workshop could maybe spin something up that looks like the water woman. Laila Harre as the pillion passenger.

    Shane Cortese can play Jolyon.

    I originally thought I would direct in order to keep it real. But then I realised that I don’t particularly want to meet any of the caste.

    Do you fancy the gig yourself Johnboy?

    Could you see a part for a wise old Gandalf type character with a shepherds crook and a peculiar way with his flock who constantly sups from a flask of the Famous Grouse whilst bemoaning the shortage of barbed wire and the huge fees certain lawyers fleece from the public purse?

    If so that part would suit me to a tee. :)

    “The gig” I was referring to was as Director Johnboy.

    Coincidentally however, I was thinking of introducing a mystery character along the lines you suggest. The character happens upon an unconscious water woman who is rendered thus when the election billboard she is erecting is caught by a puff of wind and collapses on top of her.

    Sensing the hostility of the surrounding voters, he carries her away to his rural retreat. When she regains consciousness, she realises that she is not who she thought she was but is in fact an extremely wealthy heiress to a multi-billion dollar fortune.

    It transpires that an incorrect water meter reading that she received closely following the traumatic death of her parents who were swept away when a convicted white collar criminal sabotaged a dam as an act of revenge, sent her over the edge into her water woman persona.

    He nurses her back to health and when she hears how he rescued her from the angry electoral mob, she professes her undying love for him.

    They live happily ever after and high on the hog’s back. As money is no object, on each of his birthdays, she hires a dozen $1,000 /hour lawyers for him to use as target practice.

    I haven’t decided whether the movie concludes by fading out to him lining another birthday batch of lawyers up in front of his offal pit for target practice, or with the cell door slaming shut on Shane Cortese (Jolyon).

    I’ve always thought Penny had another side to her other than the one she displays here and as a rural fellow a woman with biceps as big as hers is a real asset when mucking out the hogs and splitting the logs.

    The lawyer scenario is what really swings it for me though. I might get my Grandpappys old magnum rebarreled so I don’t miss any of the bastards.

    If I accept the part how much will I have to pay you?

    RNZ and other networks seem to be using the reporting of this story as a way to get Jolyons message out further.

    Every time the story is mentioned the content of the stickers is repeated in full, I have heard it over a dozen times now on RNZ.

    This is the Americanisation of NZ politics.
    A weird cult of beared whitemen surreptisiously underming the democratic process.
    A clear violation of NZ values by an exclusive minority.
    Bucket loads of covert cash collected from the faithfull, paying for messages of hate.
    Traced to the very office of the leadership.
    Utilising a veritible army of brainwashed youth.

    Where have I heard this before?
