File under: Another thing Whaleoil predicted that didn't happen
Mallard makes 'blubber boy' wail
Despite shedding 15kg, blogger Cameron Slater, also known as Whaleoil, could not match Labour MP Trevor Mallard in a 60km bicycle race around Auckland's eastern suburbs yesterday.
Right, so Cam's prediction that he would kick Trevs arse can be filed alongside his other failed predictions of John Banks winning the Auckland Mayoralty, Phil Goff being rolled, Chris Carters Mother using a tax payer cellphone (when she had been dead 12 years), Mana not forming, Phil Goff getting rolled, Mana not forming in time for the election, Phil Goff getting rolled and Hone losing the Te Tai Tokerau by-election.
With such a failed track record, I can see why the mainstream media base so much of their ill-researched weekly news stories on Whaleoil's twitter feed.
PS - Trev, stop giving Cameron this attention, to quote Cam at his best, "never roll around in the mud with a pig". You may have 'won' a bloody bike race but you lost the war, Cam wins because you have wasted so much energy on mud wrestling with him.
The left are kidding themselves if they think Slater is stupid, he isn't, he's the best dog whistler the right have. Can we get back to how the National Party are crippling the welfare state and why we have 210 000 NZ children living in poverty while the richest 150 families increased their wealth by $7 billion, or does the NZ Herald want to run Cameron's latest leadership rumour regarding Phil Goff as gospel again?
