Fundraising...road rage....fainting disorders

A patriotic reader forwarded a link to a story that simply has it all: fundraising, road rage, fainting disorders, and all manner of other things.

Some background is available here and here.

I especially love this line: ``After a few years of constantly paying lawyers . . . you run out of money,'' he said

I wonder who he will line up as speaker for his fundraiser- maybe Andy will get the gig.

I'm sure there'd be quite a few people who'd be prepared to pay to hear him speak.

Who was he so paranoid about following him that he carried a baseball bat in his car

scary stuff

Anonymous said...

He said at the Magsitrrate's Court that he thought he was being followed by a process server.

Andy as the guest speaker - brilliant!

Anonymous said...

Where would you hold the event???

Anonymous said...

the story about the process server at the Town hall is priceless - absolute comedy genius

just like everything else Landeryou has been involved in!

How about Landeryou's palatial apartment!

How does he qualify for Centrelink payments when he receives $15k a year from Banyule Council?

Is his Council work qualified as "work for the dole"?

perhaps that poultry company he was general manager of could put up a chook for a raffle

Is this the same Dean Sherriff who was up on civil charges for not paying his legal bills?

I know the phone box line has run its course but in this case !!!
Ironic really, that sherriff and peters are culled in the same year,
Birda of a feather and all that

He had ALP after his name in an ALP area.

Music will be by the Deantones.

Their repertoire includes:

One (is the loneliest number)
All By Myself
Alone Again (Naturally)
Me and you and a dog named Boo
Working on the Chain Gang.

Any requests?

banyule shite is usually very tedious, but this is actually hilarious

I'm not defending Dean, but the biggest winners out of all his troubles will be the legal profession.

They are all rogues, or at least almost all of them are rogues.

Lawrence Money today referred to the legal profession in the same light today in his column in The Age.

The Works upmarket eatery in Burwood Road Hawthorn is advertising for a barrister. They really meant to say baristas but if they did get any barristers working for them I would not buy their coffee. Barrister coffee (not barista coffee) could only be cheap and undrinkable. Profits would go to Tony Mokbel.

They should employ Dean Sherriff as a barista. Dean I'm sure would make good coffee.

Dean Sherriff should be supported as a member of the ALP, according to some people in Banyule.

My preference is to wait and see. We should let the legal system take its course. If his appeal is dismissed we will have egg on our faces.

Notice that on this topic Andy and his sock puppets Freddy and suntanned Cait are completely and TOTALLY silent.

Why?

Anonymous said...

Could be because it's too embarrassing.

Anonymous said...

Maybe Andy should support Sherriff with some of the Marbaine profits stored in the Seychelles.

Anonymous said...

maybe Andrew could represent Dean in court as a favor to a friend - he's a lawyer isn't he.

Anonymous said...

Don't think he's a practicing lawyer.

Perhaps he could run some seminars on how to avoid process servers. It should generate a bit of cash and he does seembto have an expertise in that area.

This was posted back in December!

The Sherriff matter is his road rage appeal version 3.

In December 2005, Sherriff pleaded gulity to road rage charges in the Heidelberg Magistrates Court. The Magistrate convicted him and sentenced him to a four month suspended jail sentence, a $1000 fine and suspended his licence for 6 months. He was also instructed to undertake psychological counselling.

Sherriff has managed to defer his appeal hearing twice during 2006.

In the latest instance in September, Sherriff did not front the court. In a letter to the court Sherrif said that he had taken ill at the very last moment due to some mysterious illness.

Sherriff's problem is that if the conviction stands then he is disqualified from being a Banyule Councillor or elected official for seven years.

Expectations are that Sherriff will try and stretch the appeal process further in order for him not to drummed out of public life in disgrace. However, the Magistrate last time was underwhelmed by Sherriff's antics and Dean runs the risk of copping a custodial sentence if he persists. This is also a second offence.

Most dispassionate observers agree that Sherriff got off rather lightly from the original Magistrate.

Sherriff may attempt to overturn the Magistrate's conviction due to incompetent representation, that there was an organised police/political vendetta against him (apparently there were a number of police witnesses that gave evidence at the original hearing) or he may turn up without representation to further confuse and delay the matter.

Even if the conviction stands then Sherriff can seek relief under the Local Government Act to restore him to his Council position.
Ultimately, the Minister for Local Government decides. However, there is a long convoluted process of Appeals which will keep the the matter boiling perhaps right up to the next Council elections in 2008 and beyond.

This public scandal of being able to manipulate court processes indefinately is somethig that should be addressed and curtailed by the State Government.

The only saving grace in the matter is the old Larry Flynt cry, that if the system protects the rights of an arsehole like Sherriff, then it will certainly protect the rights of the general citizenry.

You be the judge!

The Banyule Mayors Charity Ball has now been renamed "The Beggars Banquet" in defference to Dean's plight.

Highlight of the night is to be a duet of Sherriff and Phillips singing "Buddy, can you spare me a dime."

The misadventures of a dodgey ALP councillor is prime material for Landeryou's Blog of Bile but Andy-Delia-Cait is leaving this comrade to hang in the wind.
So much for Landeryou's "honest, accurate and fair reporting." Can't defend the indefensible, eh Andy-Delia-Cait?

Maybe one of those "fainting disorders" will get him. I hope so!

There is a lot of negative energy here people.

At this rate, you'll all get cancer very soon.

Aren't you just as bad as those you hate when you carry on like this?

I know you must enjoy it to see these peoples demise, but in reality its just really fucking sad. And what is sadder, is that people here in blogger land are getting off on it.

Smile, think good thoughts, eat McDonalds products with the 'tick' and you will live far more healthy and fulfilling lives

I hope Dean Sherriff chokes on some KFC nuggets over dinner with Andrew Landeryou and dies a slow horrible death.

What happens if he actually wins his appeal?

Dean gets to laugh in the face of anyone who thinks violence against children should be punished.

We should have capital punishment for people like him. I hope he dies of his fainting disorder.

Dean Sherriff should be expelled from the ALP. He does deals with all sorts of people who aren't exactly traditional Labor supporters.

outraged said...

I just checked the VEC site, www.vec.vic.gov.au

The people in Bundoora are really sick. They voted Sherriff back in on primary votes. They must not be able to read their local newspaper. Typical of Dean Sherriff to represent illiterate twits.

Dean,

All this self abuse must be bad for your eyesight.

Eat more carrots!

I agree he should eat poison carrots and die like the dog he is.

Someone should put a bounty on Dean Sherriff's head. I will give the first 20 dollars.

Bounty implies he is your dessicated coconut.
I think Dean is more the Jaffa; a red head full of chocolate shit!
