Until we have legislation adopted into law to ensure fiduciary accountability and transparency in public affairs we will continue to have human rights breached because the existing crown immunity and lack of any independent oversight invites corruption to flourish.

Election by Deception Part 2 - Idiots in Power, Political Science 101:

More on what passes for democracy in New Zealand these days, and anyone who thinks our elections are democratic needs to think again and face the facts. There are two main issues that need addressing, the role of the media in its reporting of matters involving politicians, and the corruption of the actual election process. Firstly, the role of the media:

This is ex Mayor of Carterton Gary McPhee, who is now on the Wellington Regional Council, after he and current Mayor Ron Mark 'helped' each other get elected. Gary McPhee is a bullying and violent lunatic and it's well documented. He is incompetent and corrupt and it is largely thanks to him and Georgina Beyer and the other local "politicians" that the Wairarapa has regularly has twice the national rate of suicide in a country with some of the highest rates in the world. Thanks to this incompetent and corrupt "leadership", Wairarapa also tops the child abuse statistics. Shortly after McPhee was elected he was involved in a particularly violent drunken home invasion and assault at a local residence.  He avoided being charged because of corrupt local police officers and journalists, who claimed that no complaint had been received, a common refrain from local police - and contradicted directly by the fact that the victims called the Police and complained to the local 'news' paper, as well as the evidence of a number of victims and witnesses.

What's also interesting to note is that a few days ago it seems eleven people "liked" Gary McPhee, 'Politician', according to his Facebook page, but today only nine do. How do these people get elected if only nine people like them? Or eleven, for that matter? The picture on it shows him with an insane grin on his face, holding a baby who is crying, while he is making the baby hold the bumper sticker he's invented that says "Kill Violent People".  - Note, it seems the page has been deleted since this post was published - no surprises there.

Anyone who advocates killing people should be ashamed of themselves, and so should anyone who "likes" them as a politician.  We've got serious problems with violence in our communities, and here's a politician advocating killing people and setting the utterly disgraceful example he is. A recidivist violent offender advocating killing people. Great! The same person who kicked in the door of an innocent person minding their own business in a drunken violent home invasion!

We need to adjust people's attitudes. We need jobs. We need resource centres and community gardens - regarding the jobs and the gardens - McPhee sold the Carterton Borough Farm to a local dairy farmer because he "couldn't understand what an educational reserve was" according to him, so the Wairarapa missed out on the international Cordon Bleu Cuisine School, which was perfectly suited to the Carterton Borough Farm, and at one point a real possibility for the Wairarapa, and would have brought billions of dollars to the local economy! And provided many training opportunities. McPhee's an idiot. Nobody wanted a six million dollar Event Centre (that only seats 300 people anyway). People wanted a Community Resource Centre that focused on important local matters - not a bad taste monstrosity of an edifice for the elite to perform the Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. One of the leading lights of the local theatre is Mark Hinton of Wollerman Cooke and McClure (link to all their misdeeds will be up shortly, watch this space).

Here's Gary McPhee, Politician's facebook page, the one with 9 "likes" is today's, 26 November 2011, election day, how ironic.

(Update - it appears the facebook page has been removed since we drew attention to it, to spare McPhee the embarrassment of everyone seeing that only 9 people liked him.)
This is an article in the local paper shortly after he was elected Mayor, written by the local sycophant journos at the biased and prejudiced Wairarapa Times-Age, following a nasty drunken violent home invasion, committed by McPhee and his mate, fellow Council employee Chris Keegan. McPhee alleges this violent, drunken criminal attack was in response to "a noise complaint" - from some complainant he refuses to name because they are non existent, or some drunken delusional biker mate of his - for one thing neither McPhee OR Keegan was the local noise control officer so neither had any authority for the attack WHATSOEVER, and for another thing, since when is it alright to smash your way into someone's house and assault them with a weapon in response to a "noise complaint" anyway?!:

FLAMBOYANT Carterton mayor Gary McPhee has broken his silence over an incident in the town last Thursday that led to him being questioned by police.
The rangy first term mayor, who stands 6 foot four inches and is a Harley Davidson fan, has described his role in the High Street incident as being something he regretted, but he was not backing away entirely from it.
"I do regret it. It's something I wish I hadn't done but if someone else had done it I would have supported them," he said.
The incident that led to him being interviewed by police involved Mr McPhee pushing his way into a flat in the centre of town and arguing with the people inside.
According to Mr McPhee - and to police ? (sic) the flat had been at the centre of many police inquiries.
Mr McPhee said on Thursday he had a few drinks with friends and had fielded yet another complaint about the flat.
He had " rightly or wrongly" intervened by visiting the premises, forcing the door open and confronting those inside.
There had been a "verbal exchange" and he said he had then left without further ado only to be later spoken to by police.
"Mr McPhee said the flat had been a problem area for a long time.
He said he had "reacted, or possibly over-reacted" when he had received the complaint on Thursday night.

"Carterton is my town." [NO GARY, IT'S OUR TOWN.]
"I am proud of it
"I want it to look good and for people to feel safe." Yeah, right.
Mr McPhee said he has been negotiating with the owner of the flat, which is tenanted, over its future." [BLACKMAILING THEM MORE LIKE IT!]
"The mayor was back at work yesterday after being in Tauranga during the weekend and in Wellington on Monday.
He said he has talked to the council's chief executive officer Kieran Shaw over what had happened, but not to his councillors.
"It's really nothing to do with the council." [Yeah, right - nothing to do with the community either, according to the nasty, drunken, bullying oaf.]
It's time people stopped believing what the local journalists tell them about our politicians and started having a good look at who they really are. This was allegedly in response to a "noise complaint" - neither of these two drunken oafs was the noise control officer and if there WAS a noise complaint - which there wasn't - there would be a record of it - which there isn't - and it most certainly WOULD be Council business!
McPhee is a bullying bikie with a drinking problem and a violent and aggressive personality.
We've just had the suffer the noise and frightening spectacle of the Boobs on Bikes White Ribbon hoons roar through the town, The Christmas parade had hardly finished!
Yesterday a cyclist was knocked off her bike by a car right outside my house and it will be interesting to see what Constable Sykes and the Masterton Police Prosecutors do about it. Kids don't like these great big Harley Davidson's roaring past with these big fat blokes in black gear and intimidating helmets and balaclavas etc.

Drivers need to be WAY more careful when opening car doors and when pulling out of driveways. This driver was not looking where she was going, and she was going too fast. Drivers open car doors in front of me on an almost daily basis, then deny it, then abuse me, and other cyclists I know confirm it happens to them all the time too. Look before you open your car doors please motorists, the edge of a car door in the face does really terrible damage. Look before you come out of your driveways please, because the point is, that could have been a child yesterday. The victim was thrown several feet onto the road, and could well have been hit by a vehicle, the area is near a 100 kph zone and speeding is common in the area.

It's not safe for kids to ride their bikes on the roads and it's safe for them to do so on the footpaths as long as they show consideration for pedestrians and motorists, slowing down and getting off whenever necessary, and wearing high visibility reflective vests at all times.

Kids round here get bored because there's nothing for them to do, they want to go and play, and ride the Community Garden ponies, but yesterday we were told off by Emily Brown's mother in law, who works for the Council who told us "This is the dogs park. You're not allowed here." We weren't bothering anyone. Her dog should have had a muzzle on and there was nothing stopping her from running it off the lead as she was claiming our presence prevented her from doing. Kids have nothing to do here, because the Carterton DIstrict Council have sold off the Community Centre, Health Centre, Borough Farm, and everything like it to pay for the $6 million Event Centre that nobody wanted - for the Best Little Whorehouse in Texas!
Me being safe, High visibility safety vest, helmet, glasses, bell, rear vision mirror, and looking for traffic and pedestrians.

McPhee in his usual get up, he regularly refuses to wear a helmet, and wouldn't be seen dead in a reflective vest - he REGULARLY crashes, and here he is moaning about having to pay ACC fees!
Me showing someone how long McPhee will be Mayor for, or how big his brain is or something.

Media reports show a clear and indisputable bias in favour of Georgina Beyer and Gary McPhee, and several clear and indisputable attempts to slander and defame other candidates, and minimise or ignore relevant news items about other candidates.
This is a link to the TV3 report on the 2007 local body election after it was revealed that there was widespread problems with the election, you will see that the video has been deleted and the font reduced in size. The video included an interview with me, and the fact that the local elections were a farce and a travesty! A request to TV3 to have the video replaced on the website was refused as was a request for a copy of the deleted video footage (and any other footage of the interview) to be mailed to me.

Here's how it works - local media blackmail incumbent Councillors and violent bullying Mayor to pay protection money for the propaganda on offer!:
