|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!
