The lefty blogosphere – for once united with VEXNEWS in our denunciation of arguably corrupt former state MP Evan Thornley – has done some fine work in taking the big stick to the big fat rich slob.
Andrew Crook – whose email we note is firstname.lastname@example.org which probably should have been reserved for ASIC investigated owner Eric Beecher – has been excelling himself on this issue and we commend his effort today exposing the gaping holes in Thornley’s story. He is indeed a lying liar who lies. We’ll cut and paste the article below for those keen to see the take-down.
Little known left-wing blog “Grods” has also been tearing strips off Thornley although they took issue with our assertion that his wife – a Tracey Ellery – sets a drunken and violent example for her offspring. Of course they claim our website is not visited by anyone or contributed to by anyone other than me, which tens of thousands of our patriot visitors and dozens of contributors would probably take issue with.
But Landeryou, in Landeryouâ€™s inimitable style, takes the criticism a couple of hundred steps too far and lays into Thornleyâ€™s wife, accusing â€œmama Traceyâ€ of â€œsetting a drunken and violent exampleâ€ to her kids.
I tells ya, if I was Evan Thornley and I was about to earn $700,000 per year, Iâ€™d happily throw away a lazy hundred grand on a useless defamation action against Landeryou just for shits and giggles.
They presumed this was Ellery trash talk invective rather than an eyewitness account.
A long, long time ago, it was our displeasure to be in business with Evan Thornley. We had a web development business which we deployed to assist him to the fullest extent possible. We’ve told that story before on the OC. In a way that Mr Thornley certainly cannot claim, we keep in contact with many of our former business associates and staff from back then. A number of them also saw examples of Ms Ellery completely losing her cool in Looksmart’s then offices in the mid 1990s, almost always after staggering back from a Hardware Lane bar tanked on red wine and politically red whines.
Nothing wrong with getting sloshed occasionally, but it is no exaggeration to say that Ellery was then almost certainly an alcoholic. And a violent one at that. A number of people saw her physically attack her husband, including throwing a heavy picture frame at him in the midst of their many fiery and terrifying arguments. Their behaviour was the stuff of much-repeated war stories in our company as we slowly recovered from the horror of working with Ellery and Thornley.
