Ructions in the Mayor’s Office, Ctd

The other day I blogged about the ructions in Len Brown’s office.

On the weekend we may have had a glimpse of a possible solution. Campaign supremo Conor Roberts was spied attending the Shearer/Robertson entourage at the Big Gay Out. While Shearer was going for metro-sexual machismo, Conor was in a bright red polo.

Could this be the solution to the conflict in the Mayor’s office?

By seconding the campaign maestro to Shearer’s beleaguered office it also perhaps a signal that Len Brown’s office has realised that he needs to move back to the centre in order to retain his mayoralty. With all the fuss that his 13 new Jafa-taxes has garnered he will have twigged very quickly that something is going to have to be done to mitigate the perception that he is a tax and spend mayor. James Bews-Hair must have the ear of the Mayor as Conor Roberts is now being openly seen with Camp Shearer.

This would be good for Conor too, though the biggest challenge will be listening patiently to Trevor Mallard about all his big, failed, ideas about campaigning.

UPDATE: I may be incorrect in that a commenter says that is Simon Randall not Conor Roberts…looks the the war in the Mayors office is set to continue then.
