Ah yes. Tim’s in a category all of his own. And they still love him down in Invercargill
He sure is one very happy and funny man. He deserves a whole ‘Orchard” on his coffin too – when his time is up.
I would much rather have him than Len Brown
Same here, rather have a mayor who is a clown, then a mayor who is a joke.
The reason he talks like that is that English is not his first language…he was raised with a Dutch background and so took on English later into his childhood…hence why his inflections are as they are….
Even stoned he still does a better job then anyone in the Hamilton council
He has written a book already…check out bullshit and jellybeans by Tim Shadbolt..probably not topical now but was a good giggle in it’s day.
He could write a book “How Not To Run Local Government” or “Public Excluded: My Special Quiet Time.” Other than profile, he has done SFA for Invercargill. Governance is non-existent down here.
In local government governance is non existent EVERYWHERE.
The only governance Invercargil needs is Tim to show up with a Swappa somewhere on a Saturday night
