DIVISION 9 THE SCENE OF ELECTORAL MISCHIEF WITH LNP HEAVY HOWIE THOMAS AT THE CENTRE OF THIS DISASTER

EVEN THIS ELECTION VEHICLE IS A PHONY -
A PHOTOSHOP JOB BY HOWIE THOMAS AND
HIS FAILED CANDIDATE WIFE BRONWYN
The antics of Howard "Howie the Ratfucker" Thomas are well known to readers of Hillbilly Watch. The results of this election cannot be allowed to pass without an analysis of the antics in Division 9 by the Liberal National Party branch.

The LNP was well aware that the dullard Fennell was likely to be tossed out by Division 9 voters, if for no other reason than nobody had ever met him, nobody seemed to know what he was doing, and he seemed to be collecting a council pay packet for bugger-all. Fennell is the poster boy for the do-nothing politician.

Enter Howie the Ratfucker. Howie has always had a high opinion of himself and wanted to add “preference whisperer” to his largely fantasy CV. Somehow he convinced the Barron River Branch of the LNP to run his braindead wife as an "independent" - a damning indictment of the ethics inherent in this LNP branch. The argument put forward was that Bronwyn would maximize the conservative vote and then her preferences would allow Fennell to fall over the line.

Of course what lil’ Howie was really dreaming was that Bronwyn would come second last, not last and that Fennell’s preferences would launch the Thomas family snout straight into the public trough. Ever since Howie was knocked-back for any of the State seats (or to succeed Entschy for that matter), Howie and Bronwyn have been desperate to milk their position to snag a cushy pollie job. Howie's “Save the Reef Now” scam was ably exposed by another Cairns blogger, and there are an increasing number of businesses who will have nothing to do with Howie and Bronwyn.

The plot was hatched to launch Bronwyn onto a deceived and unsuspecting Division 9, win the election, discard the false flag of independence and thereafter sit at Bob "Sleepy" Manning's right hand. We've been unable to determine how complicit Manning and the Unity Team have been with this scheme, but we have confirmed that Fennell was despised by virtually everyone at council.

After the election was called, Howie whipped into action with his well-known tactic, the bullshit social media campaign. After just over a week, Bronnie’s campaign webpage had received 4,000 likes! With only 11,000 voters in Division 9, Howie had obviously over-egged the pudding.

Cairns Connect's candidate Sarah Fenley’s advertisement for a flatmate was turned into a revolting sledge, and distributed widely by anonymous email.  A little later in the campaign, Brett Olds' conviction on a low-level alcohol driving charge had the old anonymous email generated, suggesting that Olds was unfit to hold office.

With Division 9 largely composed of electors with a higher level of education and business acumen, the ratfucking was seen for what it was and Bronwyn's piss-poor showing was the result.

You can't make this shit up.

The polls of course are pretty much in, and sadly Cairns is doomed to another term of the mindless incompetence of Manning and his cronies.

With one exception…….the egregious Fennell is going back to the used car yard. Good riddance!

Let’s analyze Brownyn's performance. As at today she has 686 votes, or 9.89% of the vote counted. She can take heart that she has at least managed to outpoll Donald Trump (barely), along with the informal vote. Keep in mind that Bronwyn had the assistance of the donkey vote because her marble came up first when the ticket positions were decided. The donkey vote is said to be worth up to 10%, so the only conclusion that can be drawn is that some people who would normally have donkey voted were sufficiently repulsed by her to actually discharge their franchise intelligently for once.

Scrutineers report that Bronwyn's preferences are running 2 to 1, Olds over Fennell. 

Congratulations to Brett Olds, the one rose in amongst the LNP poison ivy on council.

This is what happens when people who are not very smart try to pull the wool Howie. 'Put my silly airhead wife up as a candidate and I’ll use my amazing skills at ratfucking and social media campaigning so that she out-polls Fennel and his preferences put her snout into the trough.'

Instead, Howie over-egged the pudding at every turn and pissed off people who might otherwise have voted LNP, thereby orchestrating this defeat for Sleepy Bob’s team.

There is absolutely nothing sweeter in political contests than watching a half-smart political ratfucker comprehensively ratfuck both themselves and their party.

A brief survey in Division 9 confirmed that two facts about Bronwyn Thomas disgusted the electorate - her non-existent CV, and her residence outside of Division 9.

If the Barron River LNP branch membership is smart enough to work out what Howie Thomas did and what went wrong, we reckon there might be a spill of positions in the near future.

Enjoy Howie! You're politically doomed!

I listened yesterday to a recording of the post election interview between Mackenzie and Jim Brooks. Mackenzie actually had the gall, the arrogant affrontery to criticise social media! Not only that, but he had the sheer hide to bung on some pathetic phoney gallantry and complain on behalf of "the women". Fucking hyprocrite! Who could ever forget the way he demonised Val Schier when she was Mayor!! Who could ever forget that. I was disappointed Jim didn't pick Mackenzie up on that and really show him up as the hypocritical oily bastard he is.

Will Bron now get some extra Botox and plastic surgery done? Poor Howie, you never did quite make it did you mate? That public trough was so close you could almost taste it! Lots of taxpayer funded goodies in there. Oh well, back to the drawing board for you two imports. Maybe Sleepy will recommend you for a job out at Longreach street sweeping, or watering the 'tree' at Barcaldine? Losers.....

I was also listening to that radio broadcast and was surprised how much Jim Brooks dissociated himself and Connect Cairns from the Cairns Times pamphlets that were being delivered in letterboxes, and characterized Paul Mathews the author as a "twice failed candidate for public office".

Im surprised because Paul Mathews is on Jim Brooks's friends list and Ellen Webber commented on his Fb asking if he wanted to help her on polling day.

I'm starting to wonder if Jim Brooks isn't just as two faced as other politicians.

Alison Alloway said...

I heard that interview as well, mentioned by Suzee above. I thought Jim made a good point in that the Connect Team did surprisingly well considering they started off campaigning with a zero approval rate but ended up attracting 4 out of 10 votes. Not too bad at all. So what now for the Connect Team? From working at a polling booth on election day, I found that a very large proportion of voters did not know who their Council representative was, not did they know which division they were in. As I was there for some hours, I would estimate over 60% of voters did not know these two things. This leaves an opportunity open for the Connect Team to keep their name before the people in their Division. Attend any community meetings, form a Ratepayers Group if there are none in your Division, try and voice an opinion on Council issues in the media. You have four years in which to gain the awareness of the voters in your Division. Four years in which voters can get to now ad meet you. In those four years you will most likely not see most of the Unity Team do anything but sit on their bums in their cosy, cushy, no stress positions. They have handed you a wonderful opportunity, on a plate.

The first issue has already presented itself to Connect people. Why isn't the Council doing something about Harald's House? In many other cities it is the role of the local Council to look after the homeless youth, why not in Cairns? A tourist city which cannot look after its most vulnerable citizens doesn't look good to the rest of the world. You have a opportunity to keep the momentum going and to keep those Unity Councillors on their toes.

I think what Howie's campaign really shows is how ineffectual social media is for campaigning. Putting up signs and paying for promoted posts on Facebook will not get you many votes at all.

Anonymous said...

Alison, unfortunately looking after homeless youth is not as "sexy" as promising a green light rail or buying a race course.

Anonymous said...

Allison, Cairns politiicans are the laziest arseholles in Australia. Maybe the humidity is too much for them, but most won't attend public meetings, they don't look after or help with the homeless, and most aren't known by the community because they sit on their fat arses in the airconditioned offices. As for the local community, well it proves that 60% of it are complete dickheads doesn't it. After all it's the community that pay the Councils wages. Everything Council does has an effect on us, so the community should get to know where their money is going and what service they will receive. The sooner Cairns locals wake up to that the sooner we will get a decent Council and a robust city....in the meantime it's all shit for at least 4 more years with coconut husk in the drivers seat.

So pleased to read the Thomas household called for their long standing cons in this town. "Disgusted" doesn't begin to describe the feelings they have provoked. Slugs. How LNP Barron can continue carrying this dead weight is beyond me. There are just a few half decent people in there. Wait on - no, actually, can't think of even one. Suppose that means they're in good company. Hang on, is it actually a company? No returns from that mob, just like Unity. They must think they're a charity, just like Manning's employer.
And on the topic of charities, careful who you back Allison. Harald has been busy digging this week's hole for many years. He thought God would provide, and if not God then the Qld Gvt. If anyone looks closely, being stingy was always the right move. Yes we need more support services, Haralds Way was never going to succeed.

thomas was at trinity primary when i went in and she looked shy, lost and forlorn. fennell was there too and he didnt even try. olds was the only one other than the spruikers who stood forward, introduced himself and offered a handshake - which i accepted. the only one who was really interested. all the others were wet fucking mops.

Poor old Howie just can't take a trick, all those big promises and he I mean she gets 10% of the vote. The Barron River LNP are really on the nose after this debacle. Thomas is like the barbers cat all piss and wind.

Bob R. said...

Allright Hillbilly hows about you leave the poor woman alone hey? I reckon enough is enough. I don't know much about tory women since the wife is a strong leftie and one of the first femminists and all that shit. Whatever the wife does what she wants to do and believes what she wants. I just shut my gob when shes on her high horse. Saves WW111 from breaking out. I reckon most men are like that today.

Hey Howie...reckon you read this blog...that nasty email about Brett that you and Kate cooked up and sent out backfired massively.Recommend you don't come to the Surf Club any time soon.

Re anon 1813

Harold's House model has in fact created a level of homelessness. They had hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations sitting in their bank whilst hundreds of young people were in fact sleeping rough. They could have donated the money to established funded providers like Anglicare to improve their capacity to address the issue, in stead of relying on the unknowns. Stench and Harold and other Tory's fooled many people but not those in the sector.

Anonymous said...

Just looking at the Queensland Electoral Commission Site, and the votes cast in each Division, it is obvious that many thousands of enrolled voters did not bother to cast a vote. Sad, because their votes could have changed many Counciillors.

News from the 'Olds' camp is that ex Councillor Fennell hasn't even had the decency to concede yet. Goes to show what a bottom feeder the bloke really is.

Anonymous said...

Would you concede Anonymous?? Who knows if there may be an adjustment. As a business owner, I would not concede to anything unless it was 100%. I think Greg Fennell has been clever to sit back and wait for a final result. That shows intelligence...not greed!!!! Brett Olds, however, was telling people at Trinity booth that he had won...hahaha what an egotistical loser. People were patting him on the back wishing him luck and he was saying..."Don't worry I've won its in the bag".

Resume reads, Ex used car salesman and one term local councillor. All job offers considered, preferably something that requires sweet fuck all to be achieved. More than happy to ride on the back of others. Please send offers of employment to address in division 8.

Alison Alloway said...

It has been interesting to read the comments about Harald's House. I certainly don't expect any Councillor personally or the Council as a whole to do anything except point the finger at either the State of Federal Government. Most likely the State Government, because it is a Labor Government. (They would be stuffed if it was an LNP government.)
However, there is a time, and the time is now, for local residents to demand more from their Council in the way of looking after our most vulnerable citizens. Income inequality is rapidly increasing across Australia and Cairns is no exception. I do not see this as being reversed, but rather that income inequality will continue to escalate due to the dictates of neo-liberal economic policies. It is only a matter of time before we see a rapid increase in the homeless and begging on the streets of Cairns. We are a tourist city, and having our homeless and beggars highly visible on the streets is not a good advertisement for the city. The time is NOW for our Council to start taking measures involving themselves more in the care of its citizens.

Re Alison

The rate and tax payers have a right to believe any funded social investment should go to stakeholders invested into long term sustainable change for the vulnerable. Harold's House was run off the idea that donations would sustain it. It doesn't work like that in real terms. Enquire with stakeholders funded for safe houses and 24 hour care and you will see in some cases they are paid up to a $1,000,000.00 a year to case manage (1) vulnerable young person. Harold's House is simply an idea founded on the warm and fuzzy

Anonymous said...

Yes Howie's campaign would not have been cheap she was even asking for donations on her/his website. I wonder what he will come up with next.......... He had a go a selling bits of the reef maybe I might get into flogging off some rainforest?

Anonymous said...

Word around town is that Greg is being a cry baby and Manning has dropped him like a hot potato. Apparently he has been pitching himself for pre selection for the seat of Barron River. The LNP would have rocks in their head.

Surely after Howie gate they will select someone with some real street cred.Watch this space I say.

Let's keep an eye on Mulgrave Rd for FennelšŸ¤‘.

I would say that because none of HBW's election picks made Council was just as sweet.

Headline unemployment February 10%, labour force participation down under 60%. Parts of Brisbane have participation rate over 70%.

ANZ has blacklisted Cairns for apartment financing so probably all others have as well. Nova 8 had to change their plans as no demand for what they first offered but it was approved anyway? The council the people just voted in is bad, and that is why Cairns is going to crap. No media to inform the people of facts but rather a the press office for the local boys club.

has anz blacklisted cans good no extra stupid debt here but anz has bigger dramas than us like their exposure to the miners try looking at 2 billion dollars in bad debt in that industry not the slated 100 million in the press yeah mate we are the problem

Well done HBW. The Compost has finally reported on the Cairns Airport fuel leak that was mentioned here months ago. The CP 'reporters' must be sourcing your blog for stories these days.

Reckon the pair of maggots might just leave town. Failed at business, failed at political ambition, soon to be booted out of the LNP for costing them a council member (even if it was the dullard Fennel). Credibility lower than snake shit.

look for the (unregistered) 4WD heading south real soon now. Hope their poor bloody landlord has a decent cash bond.
