Thought for the Day

The happy clapper who thought he was a rapper became a face slapper in the crapper.

Bernard Orsman also covers the bizarre antics of Len Brown at a council meeting. Len Brown’s Labour spinsters David Lewis and Conor Roberts have come up with an even weirder explanation for the weirdo behaviour of Len Brown.

Mr Lewis said Mr Brown was a more emotional person “than you and I” and a 20-minute speech to the policy and activities committee was a case of wearing his heart on his sleeve. He said the chest and head beating was a Maori gesture, kanohi te kanohi, inviting people to tackle him face-to-face.

What a lot of PC hooey, Lenny the Trougher does himself a dis-service by continuing to hide behind his paid liars.

It was the most emotional moment of an impassioned speech in which the first-term Mayor apologised for errors and mistakes, spoke of the thrashing he had given himself and asked for a fair hearing from the Auditor-General, not a kangaroo court.

“Either you give me a break and let me have the opportunity of a fair hearing to get some justice, equity and fairness, or sink into a cesspit of political expedience. I’ll leave it up to you.”

Tell you what Len, I’ll give you a break when you start telling the truth.

Meanwhile I’ll let TV3’s online poll tell you what people think of his little bit of over-acting in the council chambers on Tuesday night.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
