Rooting

A great app for Hamilton and Palmerston North to protect you from cupid’s measles

A new app has been launched which will be really useful for those on the pull in Hamilton and Palmerston North in order to avoid a dose of cupid’s measles.

A new dating app designed to provide proof someone is free from sexually transmitted diseases is drawing criticism from Native Hawaiians.

An online petition is asking for the “Hula” app to change its name.

Hula’s Facebook page includes a post apologising for offending the Hawaiian community: “We are in the process of learning more from your community, discussing internally and hope to address your concerns shortly.” Read more »

Just like Len

Why is it when rooting ratbags get caught they always blame the victims?

Especially political rooting ratbags.

Lord Rennard’s alleged victims say they are being ‘smeared’ by the peer after he claims he has ‘devastating’ evidence against them.

Lord Rennard, the disgraced Liberal Democrat peer, has been accused of smearing his alleged victims after claiming he had “devastating” evidence that undermined their testimony.

The peer has been suspended for bringing his party into disrepute after defying Nick Clegg by refusing to apologise to female party activists who have accused him of sexual harassment.

His claim to possess the evidence came in a 2,600-word statement he issued as the crisis threatened to engulf Mr Clegg’s leadership.  Read more »

Was Len part of the study?

Apparently rooting is good for your brain…so some scientists say:

Scientists at the University of Maryland say that frequent action between the sheets encourages the growth of brain cells and sharpens memory.

The research, conducted on middle-aged rats, found that the number of new brain cells increase after mating, but then drop afterwards.  Read more »

Another way of saying dodgy rooting ratbag

The little French roster caught like Len Brown with his pants down is threatening to sue Closer magazine.

President François Hollande was facing a private and political crisis after a celebrity magazine published photos it says proves he is having a “secret love affair” with a film actress almost 20 years his junior.

Closer magazine released photos it says shows the 59-year old Socialist leader and his new lover, Julie Gayet, 41, entering an apartment block a stone’s throw from the ElysĂ©e Palace in Paris.

ValĂ©rie Trierweiler, the “official” first lady to whom the president is not married, recently took up residence in one of the wings of the palace.

Closer’s Friday edition carried a seven-page report on the alleged infidelity, in which a man it insists is the president arrives on a chauffeur-driven scooter to spend nights in the flat.

Miss Gayet arrives separately. The pair are brought croissants by a man identified as his bodyguard the following morning.

“It’s a real passion that has … turned their lives upside down and makes them take insane risks,” the magazine wrote.

The report in Closer, which angered many in Britain for publishing topless pictures the Duchess of Cambridge in 2012, sparked a furious rebuke from the president, who, however, failed to deny the liaison.

A source close to the president said he “greatly deplores the invasion of his privacy, to which he has a right as any other citizen does.” The president was “studying what action, including legal action, to take”.   Read more »

Sad Shag Lenny Brown

Two more songs and videos about Auckland’s embarrassment of a mayor.

Silence won’t work Len

Len Brown continues to remain silent on the contents of the report by Ernst & Young.

Doug McKay will now be waiting a respectable amount of time before releasing it. Today it is a week since the report was given to Brown for comment.

The fact that he promptly lawyered up indicates that it isn’t good reading.

Meanwhile Bernard Orsman’s direct line to the Mayor’s office seems to have been severed.

Auckland Mayor Len Brown will not say if he has received free hotel rooms as pressure mounts on him to come clean on overnight stays in the city.

The use of hotel rooms by Mr Brown is believed to be at the centre of a legal wrangle holding up the release of the Ernst & Young (now EY) report into use of council resources during the mayor’s extra-marital affair with Bevan Chuang.  Read more »

Pants Down Brown, a song, a map, and some commentary

A commenter in the the General Debate notes in relation to Len’s overnight stays in Hotels:

Len wants us to believe that he works so hard Downtown at night that he absolutely needs to book into a luxury hotel at our expense, rather than drive the 15kms back to his house in Manakau. Even though he has a car and chauffeur at his behest. That sounds fair doesn’t it? I’m happy to pay for that aren’t I? I believe Len is working at keeping my rates down aren’t I? Enough is enough!

It is actually 24.4km but the difference is tiny. Late at night or early in the morning the commute would be barely 20 minutes. Google Maps even says so. In that time Len could have had 10 roots.  Read more »

Front? For what?

Attention seeking doris Bevan Chuang is now traipsing along behind Herald reporter Lincoln Tan attempting to door step John Palino so he can “front up and answer”. The day after this story broke she posted on Facebook that she wouldn’t be speaking to media anymore, demanding privacy, and then since then has pimped herself out to any media who would listen.

Now she wants answers from John Palino? Answers to what? She stands there in the video telling a story about a meeting that occurred the day AFTER the election had finished and John Palino had lost.

The media really are clutching at straws demanding John Palino tell everyone what he knew AFTER the election was over. Only a complete fool or a Herald journalist would believe that there was a conspiracy to oust Len Brown AFTER the election when there was ZERO benefit from such an action for John Palino.

Lincoln Tan, Bernard Orsman and all the other gutless flunkies at the NZ Herald should be demanding answers from the Mayor, especially after the revelation of the weekend when Mayor Len Brown gave his reference and assisted her to obtain a job.

John Palino hasn’t done anything remotely like that…and yet the media are pursuing him to front?

It is shameful that a ratbag and serial rooter like Len Brown hasn’t fronted even once…you can’t call the reach around he got from John Campbell fronting.  Read more »

I’m sorry! We didn’t meant it!

The Home and Family Counselling Trust was in the news yesterday for having Len Brown as its Honorary President.  Various media, including Whaleoil expressed their surprise that The Home and Family Counselling Trust wasn’t at least stating they were waiting for the result of the independent public inquiry before making any further decisions.

Turns out they’ve gone into damage control mode overnight

Friday 25 October 2013

STATEMENT FROM THE BOARD

A mayor who won’t front is no mayor at all

Len Brown is bailing on meetings and appointments all over town, he simply can’t front, the man is an embarrassment.

The Herald reports:

Auckland Mayor Len Brown continued to cancel his scheduled public appearances today as his sex scandal remained in the spotlight.

Mr Brown was to attend the launch this evening of the Rainbow Community Public Health Report – which looks at the public health needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex New Zealanders – but pulled out less than an hour before he was due to arrive at the event in Greenlane.

It was understood the mayor’s office contacted organisers and told them he had “urgent council business” to attend to.

Mr Brown’s press staff could not be contacted by APNZ in the hours leading up to the 6pm event.

Mr Brown’s pulling out of the event followed further allegations against him aired on a radio station this afternoon.

Whoops…I think that was me. Tick tock Lenny.  Read more »
