Hot off the tipline is the news, yet to be confirmed, that Stephen Tindall won’t be standing for the Super-City mayoralty. Word has it that he will be announcing this by press release this afternoon.
It sounds like despite all the grovelling and cajoling of Labour’s back room crowd Stephen Tindall is set to give them the metaphoric finger.
It is perhaps as well because no man has done more to destroy local retailers than Stephen Tindall and his red sheds of chinese crap.
That leaves Labour scrambling for a replacement candidate for the out of control, happy slapper Looney Len Brown.
Labour are now getting desperate as they see their dream of controlling Auckland whither on the vine of mediocrity.
