Sonny Thomas does a Winston Peters




Post has been updated.
The country's ugliest gay man is so highly pissed off that he didn't win the 2009 presidency of the Victoria University Student's Association that he is lodging a complaint over “concerns” that have allegedly been raised over the amount of money spent by President-elect Jasmine Freemantle during the campaign period - just like Winston Peter's did over Bob Clarkson in Tauranga in 2005.

Except Sonny Thomas is uglier than Winston Peters, despite being a lot younger. In a media release, he said the other two candidates polled lower, and with his count made the total count against Freemantle 1762 votes, or 66 percent of the electorate.

I didn't know the student body was an electorate. He then says this:
It’s disappointing to see archaic electoral systems such as first past the post ignore the wishes of two thirds of the student body..... the majority of students did not have the confidence in Jasmine Freemantle
Umm, given that the majority of students didn't vote, I suspect they don't care. I wonder what Thomas would have said if he had won. And, chances are, there would have been a closer contest under STV as the other two candidates would probably have got more votes purely because they would have had to have been ranked..Even if Thomas increased his vote by a whopping 50 percent, and the others held their votes, more students would have voted against him than for him. Would he then say that as most student voted against him, the wishes of more than half of the student body are ignored, and the majority of students don't have confidence in him?

For a candidate who looks like he loves his food, especially Burger King, he said the biggest issue for student is, quote, "accessibility to food and a good supply of it as well," it's probably just as well he's not president. He is abusive on the blogs as well.

Students have other priorities and concerns - like student debt and getting through study. Meanwhile Sonny Thomas has to find some sour grapes to suck.

will you just get a life and move on. You bloody people are pathetic.
It’s clear the only reason you needed to win was because your party needs an office in wellington or you’d die.

You won, leave it at that


NB: Freemantle is the partner of Tramways Union boss Nick Kelly, who was VUWSA president in 2006. Like current president Joel Cosgrove, she is aligned to the Workers Party, who have just had confirmation of their registration as as political party with the Electoral Commission.

Every time I see that photo I die a little bit more. That poor man, going through life like that.
How many balls have hit that face to make it look like that?
More than Nadal's favourite racket I would guess.

Everytime I see rivers of hatred flow so effortlessly, especially in respect to petty things such as student politics, I am reminded of how pathetic and innately savage people really are.

I am an outside observer, with no particular investment in the topic at hand, but to put it bluntly in your prefered rhetoric, you people are really shit. You provide such shallow and hate driven responses to this persons actions, just remember when you look in the mirror tommorrow morning, you are filth, and please, don't let your ego convince you otherwise.

Yours Truly,
A passing by blogger
