Here’s why Len Brown would make a lousy mayor of Auckland. He can’t get the rubbish collected properly – for two weeks a revolting unhygienic mess was spread all over a local park next to residential housing.
If he can’t keep his own backyard clean in Manukau, how can Waitakere or North Shore trust him to get basic things right like rubbish collection?
Maybe Len’s too busy thinking of free swimming pools, Maori Seats and how Sue Bradford could use our rates to fund unemployment benefits to care about basic council services like rubbish.
Look on the bright side though – even the rats get social housing under Len Brown!
