ANNOUNCED CANDIDATE BRONWYN THOMAS TRANSPARENTLY UNQUALIFIED FOR CAIRNS COUNCIL SEAT DESPITE HER LNP PUPPETMASTERS

HOWIE'S BIG PLAN TO BUILD BRONWYN'S
CAMPAIGN AROUND THIS PHOTO
HAS OBVIOUSLY RUN AGROUND
Many in Cairns are aware of South African business migrant Howie Thomas, and his airhead wife Bronwyn.  Howie has been an LNP ratfucker for a long time - he was responsible for despicable attacks on Member for Cairns Rob Pyne as well as Member for Barron River Craig Crawford on behalf of the LNP during the last state bloodletting.  He couches behind a "company" called "The Social Guy".  

Howie has been behind other questionable money-raising ventures, which have included unregistered "fund raising" for Murray Street.  He's also actively promoted dodgy Facebook "likes" - in a moment of euphoric stupor he bought the Aquis website over 40,000 "likes" for his brief client, Tony Fung.  The fact that there aren't anywhere near 40,000 Facebook users in FNQ immediately caused this promotion technique to smell.  Howie has also been connected to a dodgy scheme called "Save the Reef Now".  This fraud was discussed on another Cairns-area blog, and quickly exited when exposed.  

Thomas then unsuccessfully attempted to use his LNP connections to get his wife Bronwyn a spot on the Manning-led Unity ticket for council.  Bronwyn has little education and only suspect business experience (we'll get to this in a moment).  But when people need money and can't succeed in the business community, it's natural that they attempt to get a job as a pollie.  What more do you need but  a mediocre marketing campaign???

So with Howie well and truly covered with layers of LNP mud,
THOMAS' CAIRNS BUSINESS WITH
GOLD COAST PHONE NUMBER  HUH??
the couple has cooked up a scheme to put Bronwyn forward as candidate for Division 9.  


While some of their public records claim residency in Caravonica, and some claim residency in Trinity Park, neither of these locations is in Division 9.  This unfortunately exposes an electoral problem that's never been fixed, where elected officials don't need to reside among the people they intend to represent!  Of course if Bronwyn were able to snag a cushy councillor job, they'll finally have some income to move up The Social Guy ladder.


Bronwyn is running under the guise of being a "Business Person".  But her so-called business credentials are tissue-paper thin and even a cursory check of them raises serious questions about what kind of.  Even her education record is thin.  

She first claims to have had a business called "3 Minute Angels".  However 3MinuteAngels.com claims to have been started and run by Andrew Ward. 

You can't make this shit up.

Then Bronwyn claims to be running a company called "Aussie Logos".  This business name *IS* registered to BD Thomas & HD Thomas under ABN 94290841574, and looks to have operated for at least 7 1/2 years without any GST registration.  And if you sign up for an "Aussie Logo" from Howie and Bronwyn's company, you get a receipt without any GST shown (and essentially a "cash transaction" using Paypal).

WHAT IS THIS PHONY LAWYER'S OFFICE
AND WHY IS IT CONNECTED TO THE
THOMAS-OWNED "AUSSIE LOGOS"
Aussie Logos has gone to extraordinary lengths to hide their location and masquerade as a Gold Coast, and/or Sydney business.  They have a GC phone number (which is never answered), and a search shows the phone number listed to "Southport Lawyers".  There is a law firm with a similar name, but not at that location, and not with that phone number.   Likewise Bronwyn's "Aussie Logos" Facebook page shows the company located in Sydney.  

She also claims that "Aussie Logos", "Founded March 3,
2006" is "Australia's largest online design company" and has "40 freelancers working from home".  Generating lots of income.  Where's our cut of the GST, Bronwyn - you've been raking in this cash for almost eight years without even bothering to register for the GST.  Is the income reported to the ATO?

Then there's Bronwyn's hyper-support for the American ridesharing system Uber.  


Puppetmaster Howie has been promoting Uber for over a year, and is well-connected to the Uber Cairns representative Troy Haines.  As you'll recall, Haines is now promoting a "rideshare" system despite having been the Cairns organiser for Uber just last July.  Bronwyn is now double talking on Uber - with some already pushing back against her cheap attempt at populism.

All of this courtesy of the Cairns LNP.


BRONWYN HAS TOLD ASIC THAT THEY LIVE HERE.  OR IN TRINITY PARK?
NEITHER IS IN DIVISION 9.  
There's a lot more to report on the Thomas family.  Having Bronwyn splitting the rightwing vote in what's shaping up as a three-way race for Division 9 bodes well for Connect Cairns candidate, Sarah Flenley.  We'd also like to know why Bronwyn isn't running in the division where she lives.   

You can't make this shit up. 
BRONWYN AND HOWIE AND FAMILY.  KIDS GET BIG SO FAST!

Superb piece of investigation HBW! The last photo and caption of the fatties is priceless. But that photo of Bronwyn with Abbott - he looks he just smelt her fart or she has jammed her thumb up his ass. Hilarious shit. But what a bunch of shonks they are. Suspect businesses, suspect phone numbers, suspect residency details and suspect connections. Interesting see that their 'business' has done work for one of Cairns favourite sons Michael Trout. Just another bunch of Cairns (supposedly anyway) so called 'business leaders' who have nothing to offer except empty promises, spin and bullshit who are desperate to jag a job on the political gravy train. Being a grubby politiican is the only high paying job in Cairns, no wonder this Muppet wants to get her claws on the taxpayer trough. Fuck me, another day in Cairns and another Cairns drongo pulling a stunt. Fucking Hillbilly.
Hey Howie, how's the weather at The Spit? Shonk.

From personal experience, Bronny has a glass jaw. Ask her a hard question or put her under any form of scrutiny and her facade disappears and the real Bronny emerges. It's not pretty, nor is it nice.
If anyone follows her Facebook page you can see glimpses of the real Bronny shining through like the sun gently rising from between her buttocks.
I look at Manning, the Unity goons and Bronny and it dawns on me why Cairns is so fucked.

Mikewow said...

I noticed Manning seems to have slid away from his insolvent trading problems like a slippery slimey snake.He is trying to put out that he was sick and under work pressure,what a fucking greedy old fucker this bloke is.Manning went to the polls extolling his credentials as a business person,what a joke.
What i want to know is who is running the joint.If he cant stand the heat he shoulf really fuck off out of the kitchen.The whole city is missing out by his personal problems.The economy in Cairns is still really fragile and we need a dynamic Mayor who is concentrating fully on the job he is getting paid to do by us the raepayers.Surely it is time that people rallied around to vote these old,conservative,contrarion,backward looking,bludgers out of their positions of sinecure.Compare the Mayor of Ipswich with our zombie and it is very obvious that we are FUCKED until him and his loser cronies are gone and forgotten.

Bob R. said...

ANOTHER ONE who is running as an "independent". Jesus Christ all mighty, their sly cunning mongrels arent they? Yeah Manning was the LNP Candidate for Cairns at one stage and he thinks people have forgotten. Dunno about the politics of all these people in the Cairns Connect Team but I know I have never heard of Jim Brooks name mentioned in ALP circles ever. Anyway as to this Bronwyn woman all I can say is she would be a hundred percent better than the current member whose name I have forgotten because we never hear anything from him. However she ought to drop that picture of her with Abbott and dump it somewhere out of sight. Even my Tory idiot of a brother Vince doesnt even like Abbott and that is saying a bloody lot.

Anonymous said...


Thought she came across pretty well but not sure how you claim to be a political moderate with happy snaps with the extremist Abbott?. She opposes the lock out laws so will be interesting to see if she stands her ground when LNP support them, am about 76% sure they will. She also says on her FB page that she has made her attitude on CEP well known but I cannot find anything? Those that support the current fiasco are too conservative backward for me. Agree with the architects, lost opportunity. We have many small town operators trying to run the show here when the town has outgrown them and demands higher level of skills but as far as councillors goes she seems qualified enough. Still I would vote for the Viking. :)

Interesting to see if any public comments in the compost about this will get through as it looks like the cueball LNP clusterfuck club are all over the comments section and have handles (even old senile Karl Cobblers) on their 'new look' online page. I'd suggest every punter here should register and give this little bunch of wingnuts a run for their money.

She lives on harbour drive at Bluewater and I wouldn't vote for her ever. I remember a friend telling me she said she felt like running over some of the guys in the not for sale campaign holding core flutes on the side of the road.
All class

Mick It is a worry but I do think the far rights have calmed down. Manning and LNP were toxic to the economy yet some still believe in populist slogans, but fewer these days. Really needs to be the business community that put an end to it because it hurts them the most. You cannot say he represents business when his supporters all seem to have left school aged 12. QLD ranked last on policy risk under Newman 2014 and Cairns would have ranked last in QLD probably so possibly was the riskiest town in Australia to invest in. When policy appeals to the Reader of your comments ilk then we are doomed for sure.

Hillbilly, great reading however you have forgotten about long term local resident and father of for Brett Olds, who is also running in division 9. Brett has lived on the beaches for a total of 27 years. He will give these light weights a run for their money. Keep exposing these oxygen thieves that want a free ride on try rate payers backs they don't even live in the division.

The LNP attracts these self promoting so-called business people like dogshit attracts flies. Yes, let's all start posting on the new interactive compost and give the reactionaries a run for their money.

In other words they have found the perfect candidate for the manning , lnp party running for re-election. An obvious airhead, devoid of grey matter and sniffing the goodies in the trough to come. Do the readers of this page know or even care that people elected to local government aren't recognized in the Australian constitution so we could, the people, run a cane toad as a candidate and have it elected and probably be more effective than the present mob who are led by someone who has to be woken when found asleep in his office on a daily basis and insider tells me.

This just really stinks, since when do the LNP have two shonks running in the same division? Arm chair Fennel and Browyn the bullshit artist, she had a picture of Peter Cosgrove up on her Facebook sight yesterday, she is delusional.

Anonymous said...

If he is the social guy, they should use current photos on her Facebook page when she referred to the traffic through Caravonica she has a photo of the big tin carport at Lake Placid that must be nearly 4 years old. All of her campaign issues are State issues, she is like the barbers cat full of piss and wind. Find a tray of kitty litter and stay in it Browyn division 9 will be better off this way.

Fennel will already planning his move for the state seat of Barron River, that is now up for grabs. He reportedly told someone that is running for division 9 that they had no right to contest the seat because he fuckin owned it. The exact type of language you would expect from a ex car salesman.

Great politics at the moment both federal and state. Bill Short'one has the worst support percentage ever and is a complete drip. Malcolm 'Goldman Sachs' Turdball just does fucking nothing at all except count his bank account. Closer to home Anust'tasia Pallet'spray has forgotten Cairns and given us the human 'dildo with ears' Curtis Spitt. Then you have the Liberal minister for meat pies Warren 'wild hog' Entsch, the numbnut Manning, Bronny the nobody and what do we have? A complete mush mash of absolutely useless snouts in the trough dipshits who couldn't even successfully put their rubbish bins out on the curb, let alone govern, provide strategic direction or improve their electorates, state, or country. Hillbillys is an understatement! Then again America has Hiilary, Trump and Obozo! What the fuck is happenning to this world? Hillbillys rule supreme

Anon 13:42, Pretty bad but salvageable. ALP have been good in some regards, improved level of debate and not at war with the people and doctors and women and poor people and housing tenant etc etc etc but they need a vision. No vision means people feel uncertain about the future then they start to listen to the stupid ideas and they feel any idea is better than none.

Anonymous said...

Yep...Bronny and Howie have never been ratepayers in Cairns..mate in council checked for me.Has she actually nominated yet?Expecting once her real CV gets out the Libs might announce that Bronny has decided not to contest the council election as she wants to spend more time with her family!!!Any chance the Compost will pick up on this?In the meantime people spread the word about Bronny the deluded "independent"who desperately needs to get her snout in the trough.Shonk.

Fuck me the lot of the pond scum are circling. I hear that 'The Viking' and 'Piss Flaps Flengley' rent as well. Most recent rental arrival into Division 9 is the 'rug eater' who is hoping to make the rug sticky enough to stay. Some one good better run and soon. The 'rug eater ' is pissing people off by being a shadow and 'The Viking' thinks his mates down the Tennis Club and Surfo will stick it up him. Fark me you could not make this shit up.

I think you'll find the copany 'Aussie Logo's' out source their design work to Graphic Designers based in India. I have used these sort of companies before unfortunately not knowing that the design work was being done in India.

Apparently word is she is backed by the LNP and a stooge to pick up the Women's vote in Council. Then step up for the big one against Crawford. Hence she is only campaigning on LNP money.

Anonymous said...

Yeah obviously they are lining her up for the State role V Crawford. Everything the airhead says is anti Labor.

Anonymous said...

Word from the Vikings rented camp is that The LNP candidates are now all preferencing each other including the Viking. If that is the case Flenley definitely just lost I would say. There is no way the LNP will let Labor in and the Viking would have to pack up his tennis balls and break the rental lease & fuck off in his Viking Canoe if he let her in. He is a dead set Viking anyway and wants all crocs culled it says in Northern Beaches news. What a farkin' lump of Bogan Viking shit he is. Hey HBW why not expose that ratfucker next- bound to be a story?

Anonymous said...

I was wondering that because there is no mention in Bronnys CV about graphic artist training.Howie is the biggest spiv and snake oil salesman you could ever meet.I have been told Howie put out feelers to go on the preelection list to replace Entsch but was told no because he looks like a human barrage balloon.... that's why Bronny is standing.Apart from telling all our friends and family about this appalling woman how do we get the info out?Photocopy this column and we each take a suburb to deliver it?Can't see the Compost printing any of this.The four div 9 candidates are at a public meeting at Grand Chancellor Palm Cove but not sure of the date.Why don't we go along and get Bronny to answer public questions about her education and employment history and why she thinks she can represent the ratepayers of Cairns when she has never a ratepayer herself and that she doesn't live in division 9.After that we ask Bronny a direct yes/no question...Has or are you now a member of the Liberal party.This woman is pro AQIS and pro Palm Cove Jetty project and friend of real estate agents...She must NOT be elected

Anonymous said...

In Howiss and Bronnys wildest dreams they are!Libs won't put her up if she only scores 5% or so of ote.Another impediment to her preelection is her paper thin questionable CV.Watching her son play footy is not community involvement.People would never for a failed businewoman with a South African accent.I think the Barron River Libs are just testing the water...they'll dump her as unelectable after the council election.

People go to HBW FB page and send this article to your FB friends as a message.Easy peasy to spread the word...Don't vote for airhead Bronwyn!Anyone know how Howie is reacting...nothing on the FB page yet....hoping Cairns Post will run this story...I will let them know.
