Not as deflated as the Clown I bet

Poor old George Wood is “deflated” at his crap job handed out by Railway Len.

The Super City is only 10 days old, but councillor George Wood has spat the dummy about the relatively minor job given to him by Mayor Len Brown.

The former North Shore Mayor and senior policeman said he was “somewhat deflated” to be told by Mr Brown he would chair the community safety forum when he wanted a public transport role.

He wondered if he was being sidelined for going public on the “crummy levels of public transport” in Otara – launching pad for the political career of Mr Brown. the the former Manukau Mayor.

In February, Mr Wood compared the Otara bus station with a prison exercise yard and hoped it was not the standard of community facility that Mr Brown intended for the rest of Auckland.

“It worries me what could happen if the Manukau standards of mediocrity were replicated across the rest of the region,” Mr Wood said.

Harden up George, it could be worse, you could be on permanent gardening leave, issuing press releases and Facebooking at ll hours of the night and still calling yourself Mayor despite the election being over for more than a month. Now that would be deflating.

I just bet he is changing his name by deed poll to Mayor Andrew Williams. it remind me though, I wonder if the mayor car , robes and chains have been handed back yet?

Mayor Andrew Williams - still mayor more than a month after the election?

Mayor Andrew Williams? - still mayor more than a month after the election
