Comment of the Day

Mr Blobby comments yesterday on my post about my appearance on The Nation:

Hey Rachel (don’t know who you are) Smalley.

The real story is about a rooting Mayor. This may be a hard concept for your producers to grasp.

Two points.

1. Out of control bureaucracies like Auckland Council and probably TVNZ are cesspits of immoral behaviour, there will be rampant rooting all over the place, I have witnessed this first hand working for a Government department many years ago.

2. People like Pants Down Brown, don’t just wake up one morning and say I think I will have an affair. They are serial rooters, generally they have been at it for a long time, with a well oiled act. This is just the first time they have been caught. 

Take a closer look at Auckland Council or a casual look at any Government department and you wont have to scratch to far under the surface to see, what I am talking about.

With 6000 employees at Auckland Council, the number of affairs and so forth will go into the hundreds from the lowly cleaner/security guard right up to the top of the organization.

The difference is in the disparity of standards, the lowest paid will be judged more harshly than a senior manager, the former will be sacked the latter will be covered up.

A real investigative journalist would set aside the scripted teleprompter and do some real work and hold those in power to account.

The odds a very high that this is not brown stains first go at the rodeo.

    It seems to scary for any MSM to get a hold of this by the short n curlies and bring No Shame Len Brown out and question him…. What a joke…
    As more time goes on, they are looking sillier and sillier (MSM)

    • blokeintakapuna

      enough time and rope… and they’ll hoist themselves by their own petard upon the masthead they’ve nailed their colours to by the tone and calibre of their so called “articles”

    • Mr_Blobby

      If I was a gambling man, the odds (better than the even money bets at Sky City) are that at any point in time, there will be a manager having an affair with a junior.

      There will be a world of difference between the official policy and the unofficial policy. The unofficial policy ensuring that it never happened.

      Now would be a good time to come clean, as it is the best opportunity for it to quietly disappear, whilst the PR/Media juggernaut is misdirecting attention elsewhere.

  • Allyson

    I well remember a beaming Corin Dann enthusiastically endorsing a newly promoted David Shearer as our next PM ( joint PM with Russel Norman). He turned out to be a complete gobshite. I think our MSM is backing another loser with Len Brown.

    • John Warren

      On the other hand we had Patrick Gower doing his uttermost to bring Shearer down, shouting his rancid opinion at us every night. Who the fuck is Paddy Gower anyway, and why would I be interested in his opinion? I want simple, researched facts. I’m sick of all these gobshites and their salacious, biased reporting. I wish to God for some impartiality and professionalism in the MSM, but all possibility of it seems to be receding over the horizon as we go further down the sinkhole of tabloid gutter journalism. All the press is yellow these days.

  • Andy

    Like a lot of these issues (climategate springs to mind), it is the coverups and excuses that end up being the real story

  • Tim

    Looks like Len’s pulled out (snigger) of his first appointment.

    • He’s apparently appearing later in the afteroon in Ellerslie for the opening of a James Hardie show home or something. …just putting it out there in case anyone wants to go….

      • Tim

        If I still lived in Auckland, I’d be there to boo the muppet. Fortunately, I saw the light and moved out 6 months ago.

      • cows4me

        Hope they keep him off the table.

    • GazzW

      Did he pull out or did Royal Oak Primary School tell him he wasn’t welcome? Many parents would feel that his presence is no longer appropriate. Don’t forget either that Royal Oak is prime Maungakiekie country and Len’s fellow labour party member, Councillor Richard Northey got the big arse at the election.

      • Orange

        It was all about giving milk to small kids so he decided to pull out.

        The headline either way isn’t good though.

      • Patrick

        Brown informed them that he could only give them two minutes, naturally they thought that wasn’t enough

      • dyannt

        Great point, Gazz. I hadn’t considered that the school might have cancelled the visit.

    • John Warren

      He’s hanging in there, though. It appears he comes a lot faster than he goes.

  • LionKing

    Rachel Smalley like all MSM are more interested in smeering Palino, Luigi and anyone on the right instead of holding the Mayor to account. David Lewis must be hard about how well the media are playing to his game of distracting the media away from asking serious questions about the Mayor’s serial rooting.

  • In Vino Veritas

    I fell about laughing when Whale said “That would be blackmail” and Rachel said “your words, not mine”. As if she hadn’t, in the previous sentence inferred that Whale was involved in blackmail. All he did was put a name to the insinuation!
    I’m afraid that Rachel needs a kick in the pants for that one.

    • Phill

      I laughed when WO said, “Look you can badger me all you like……”
      at which point she decided that that was the only interview technique she knew, and it wasn’t going to work. Better end the interview quick then.

  • patrickstarr

    Rudman this morning;

    “Frankly, I’ve never liked the idea of a panel of unknown “experts”, appointed by the unelected chief executive, sitting in judgment on the conduct of an elected official.
    What checks on the panel’s ethics, or political views are undertaken before their appointment?
    This is a political stoush. We don’t need a kangaroo court sitting in judgment on the mayor’s morals”

    ROF – how does Rudman keep his job?

    • Patrick

      Wonder if my comments will pass the censorship politburo at the NZ Herald?

      “my long career of politician-watching” – were you in the Ngati Whatua room too Brian? Maybe moonlighting as a security guard, an honest vocation for once. You know as well as anyone that there is a stench about Brown, accusations of graft are serious & of much greater concern to the voters of Auckland than any moral issues. An inquiry needs to get to the bottom of Brown’s relationships with the local businesses, why he backed the convention centre against the directions from up high in Labour. No amount of soft sell by yourself can excuse what he has done.

  • Bob

    How can Len ‘masterbate at the office’ Brown remain mayor if he keeps canceling all his appointments? I agree with the comments about other women, adultery by fifty something year olds with 30 something year olds won’t be a one off.

    • Mr_Blobby

      Have any of our World class journalist looked at the brown family tree. We know all about the mistress.

  • Why are the terms of reference of the enquiry being set so as to only look at “Mayoral Office” spending, i.e ignoring general Council spending? Especially since one of the claims was that Lenny Hill got someone to use a Council card and “NOT” a Mayoral Card in order to cover up the spending. How do you spell whitewash again, I forgot?

  • conwaycaptain

    It seems to me that female TV reporters are chosen as to their looks, blonde and gorgeous. Not for what is between their ears.

    • John Warren

      It has to be said that Rachel Smalley is probably at the top of the pile of TV blondes. God alone knows what lurks between the ears of all the others

        Rebecca Wright is meant to have interviewed Robert Fisk. I bet he tore he up for arse paper.

        • John Warren

          Are you kidding? Fisk is a favourite of mine. I’d have loved to have seen that.

    • Blueballs

      I,d still give her one up the Ngati Whatua
