From working class roots in Wellington. He left school at 15 in 1959.His first job was a newspaper "boy" and then he scored an apprenticeship to become a "Butcher" in Seatoun.
He opened his first Butcher shop in the working class suburb of Mangere. He got his name from a guy in the local pub who called him “the fucking Mad butcher” and the legend was born.
How the fuck can someone with working-class roots turn into such a c%$t! (Pardoned me).
Well, I suppose it has taken him 72 years to get to this point and a few million dollars has probably helped?
This incident involving a young wahine out with her whanau on Waiheke island over the new year’s period seems to have captured attention on Social Media and LSM, with the exception of Mihi Forbes who broke this story on RNZ hours before LSM did last night.
Within a few short hours of the young woman’s Facebook post of a short video release. The Herald & TVNZ rushed to the “White Ole Rich Pricks” defense and gave him National coverage to tell his version of what happened! Oh! He says, “it was a misunderstanding. “She misinterpreted what I really meant?" Obviously? “It was just a bit of Banter?” Oh and the drinking shit too thrown in for good measure! WTF!
His PR spin doctors must have been a bit pissed too!
What part of "Waiheke is a white man's Island and she should not be there” is to be misunderstood or misinterpreted as anything other than institutionalised, indoctrinated white man’s racism?
To make things much worse and is concerning is the speed of LSM coming out in support of him and delivering his Lame-Arse excuse in National Media.
As a descendant of Paoa-Hura from Waiheke I’d like to correct the ole prick. It’s not a “white man’s island.” Much of Waiheke has been bought up by “Rich White Men” that part is true. For holiday homes and/or to make mega-bucks by speculating in the housing bubble.
I wonder if he would have said that to Serena Williams the other day when she had visited Waiheke island. You know, if they had bumped into each other? Probably not? He probably would have drooled all over her like a creepy uncle and welcomed her with an impromptu “White Man’s Haka!”
No excuses, no PR spin. He should be sanctioned severely by the Human Rights Commission, the public & national media. But, I won’t be holding my breath. His spin doctors will continue with the lame arse excuses. He’ll probably now, offer sponsorship of some kind to projects or a “Women’s” sports team or individual. Then the nation will put him back up on the mantelpiece of NZ hero’s?
He should lose his title of “Sir”? If not. From this point forward be known as “Sir Dickhead - of White Man’s Island” from the colony in the South Pacific, New Zealand, the Land of the Old White Prick!
