Len and Lefties win in Landslide

Len Brown and his lefty chums have won in the Super City elections. The predicted Rodney Hide corporate take over of Auckland hasn’t happened.

What has happened is that Aucklanders can look forward to massive rates rises under a spendthrift pinko council. I’d predict a 7% rates rise in the first 12 months.

Once again though the reverse Midas Touch of Michelle Boag has haunted a campaign. Everything she ever touches turns to shit.

What will be interesting to see now is Len Brown’s promised opening of the books. He could start by opening Manukau’s books especially on his dinner at Volare.

What will also be interesting is how those who have spent months talking up how the SuperCity will be a failure now will have to battle to prove otherwise. The success of the Super City is now in the hands of those who complained the most. If it fails it will be on their heads.

I predict a rates revolt at the next election after Len Brown and his pinko mates have ratcheted up the rates on the North Shore and East Auckland to pay for their billions in promises.

If there is anyone to blame for the loss of the city to Len Brown though it is Colin Craig who scavenged a huge amount of votes out of the right.

Aucklanders can now enjoy their coming rate increases with Len Brown and probably Mike Lee as his deputy.
