Dear Len

Can I call you Len?  I feel we’ve become much closer over the last week.

Len, it is time.

Yes, I know, you thought that you could win against one asshole with blog.

After all, with all the resources you have at your disposal.  The experts in their fields.  The tame contacts you have in media that you have cultivated for years.

A week ago, it really did seem that you could control this.  And the reputation of that asshole with a blog would catch up with him.

End of story.

Except Len, you (like many people), don’t understand a very basic thing:

I don’t fight fair.

Well, not from your perspective anyway.

You see Len, people always assume I make stuff up.  They always assume that I lie.  And of course, liars assume other people lie too.   

But being “out there” every day via this blog, putting all sorts of powerful people under pressure with my reporting, opinions and humour, I only have one way to defend myself against huge budgets and practically limitless talent and resources.

I must only speak the truth.

It seems so obvious that people find it hard to believe.  But think about it – it is my only line of defence.

So this morning, when you went ink on paper with the claim that you have made full disclosure now, we both know that isn’t true.

There is more to come out.

Maybe I will publish it.  Or maybe you’ll see it on TV or in the papers.

Many people are willing to forgive you your marital mistakes Len.  I can’t cast the first stone, and this is also why so many of us are willing to overlook you being a bit of a playboy.

On one level I’m impressed that a man of your stature…short seems a bit rude…has an ability to pull chicks that is astonishing. But then again a good mate of mine says it doesn’t matter how ordinary a bloke is it is his height that attracts women…especially if you are standing on your wallet or your reputation. You used your reputation…and all power to you.

But today you made your final mistake.  You should just have kept quiet.  But no – you had to go into press one more time with a ‘carefully crafted’ set of statements.

Except those are going to come tumbling down, aren’t they Len?

You have had many chances to step back with some degree of dignity and a prospect for another career ahead of you.

Time is now running out.

Just wanted to drop you this note, although I suspect it will fall on deaf ears.

Best,
Cam

            yeah – but it’s Auckland’s Mayor we’re talking about here – and we all have now seen Len’s modus operandi in all it’s ugly glory “All for one… and i’m the one… and one for all… to go to me”

          • Blue Water Coastie

            Unfortunately he’s too stupid to see it like that. He’s like the Monty Python Knight, that keeps claiming he can take anyone on, while he slowly gets chopped up, hopping around on one leg, then no arms and eventually just a torso, defiantly claiming victory!

          A thought has kept recurring in my head this last week.
          How many men in public office have come home on time for dinner this week instead of working overtime?

          • blokeintakapuna

            I wonder how many surprise their spouse by coming home early – only to find them in the sack with someone else!
            Mind you – I really wanted to find my girlfriend in bed with the wife – OMG it would be like Christmas!

          • Muffin

            sounds like a recipie to loose your wife, girlfriend and half your stuff in one swoop

          • blokeintakapuna

            Yep. Big bad recipe indeed. It would be like divorce Barbi. She comes out with Ken’s House, his car and half his money and a big handbag to carry both his balls.

      • terrynaki

        LOL,THATS FUNNY

  • Orange

    I wonder if we will find out his name.

  • Toryboy

    Excellent work Cam, yes – you have your honesty!

  • mike

    Cam, for you to maintain your degree of respect you shouldn’t toy with the man like this… if you have evidence and facts then release them all to the world, show everybody your cards and let them lie where they fall.

    You are a better man than Len, you have the respect of thousands of people because of your brutal honesty, don’t ruin that reputation by playing games or giving the appearance of blackmail (you know that’s what the lefties will call this sort of thing).

    Let the facts speak for themselves.

    • Toryboy

      It is not blackmail – he is giving Brown an opportunity, a final opportunity, to come clean and volunteer information (I have no idea what it is, by the way).
      Nothing wrong with that in my opinion.

      • mike

        I didn’t say it was blackmail, but the media can and will spin it to that which will effect Cam adversely.

        I’m advocating for Cam to release everything for the public to digest and form our own opinions on, maybe not all at once… how about one article a day?

        • Not Mark Richardson

          Cam doesn’t give a fuck what the msm think

          • mike

            No but he should care what the public thinks, and unfortunately the public gets most of it’s info from the MSM and at the moment they are painting him in a bad light.

          • blokeintakapuna

            they used to get most of their info from the MSM – used to…
            Today: the thinking ones prefer balanced and credible news without the propaganda…

          • Bunswalla

            In that case, nothing he says or does here will make a blind bit of difference.

            We’ve already seen how they’re blaming Cam and Cook for outing Chuang, when it was in fact the MSM themselves – the Horrid was first I believe.

            There are no depths below which they will not stoop – why only the other day I saw the gurnard parachute out of a snake’s arsehole, wearing platform shoes and a top hat.

          • I’m really touched you are concerned about this. But Cam has always had a love me as you find me kind of attitude. It isn’t his nature to pander to people just so they may have a better opinion of him.

    • Len chose this game when he lied

      • mike

        Don’t sink to his level Cam, by playing his game he’s making you and Stephen out as the bad guys… don’t become part of the story because that’s when you lose objectivity or the appearance thereof.

        • blokeintakapuna

          I agree – kind of… but I also agree with Edmund Burke… “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing”

        • rrroberto

          The spin doctors and the enablers need to take a hit as well.

          • DTG

            I know where you are coming from but I think it is reasonable that Whale has given Brown one last chance to
            “pull out” gracefully. I doubt that will happen…seems that Brown is
            now playing the game “all in”.

          • rrroberto

            He reportedly pulls out quickly. Not this time, he looks like he is going to drag it out to the bitter end, just like another more infamous sociopath who married a woman named Brown, and who wore a Brown shirt

          • Tom

            Brown doesn’t have the balls to take the revolver into the other room

          • rrroberto

            He will still give the spin master the order to clean up and destroy as much evidence as possible. Watch for some weasels changing sides

          • Blue Water Coastie

            Apparently they are now dry

          • mike

            Why give him the chance though? He has shown he has no character so why treat him kindly or with anything less than what he deserves… which is a big helping of the TRUTH! This is exactly what we should be dealing to all the scum who claim positions of power in our society, if there is dirt on any of them that shows hypocrisy or deceit towards the public they serve then dish the dirt on them all I say.

            Maybe if we start holding our elected officials to a high standard we’ll start attracting people with high standards to stand for public office.

          • DTG

            If Brown stands down now whatever information the Whale has will probably be revealed somewhere – once irretrievably a lost cause I wouldn’t be surprised to see the MSM turn on Brown and try to claim credit for the story that rightly belongs to Whale. Even Brown supporters will want to know what had caused Brown’s sudden about face. That is why Brown will play this game to the bitter end. All that Brown can hope for now is that the Whale has no verifiable new damning evidence and is playing a game of bluff…as opposed to Brown’s playing in the buff.

          • blokeintakapuna

            He can hope Whale doesn’t have any new evidence…. but a wish bone is no substitute for a back bone.

          • Bunswalla

            Sounds more like a game of poke’er

    • GarethsPussy

      For this game playing to work, it had better be something significant! However, popcorn at the ready…..

      Advantage: Cam

    • BJ

      Hardly the appearance of ‘coersion’ when the ‘letter’ is out in the public arena – not some back room harassment.
      Brown has to choose – disclose or walk away. If he thinks a disclosure can stand up to scrutiny that will be his choice. If he walks away I’m guessing he can keep his personal life private.

    • Mr_Blobby

      No. Wait until after the inauguration, otherwise Palino gets in by default. I don’t think he is the right man for the job. But if pants down stands down, better quality candidates will step up.

      • BJ

        I hope so

      • pidge

        Nope, by election required if the mayor elect cannot or does not take up office.

          • blokeintakapuna

            he can join Shearer and his 2 snapper also…

    • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

      Mike Bro – Whale is giving Lentils enough opportunity to do the right thing, resign and go away for good. Then everything will be over and no more damage will be done for him. BTW, I am wondering whether Whale is still getting water in his house and his garbage is being collected? ha ha ha!! Also be careful where you park Whale! There could be multiple parking tickets !!!

      • mike

        SCS I think Cam has made many people in the Council happy so maybe no more tickets for him ever, and may his berm be forever mowed! :-)

      • CheesyEarWax

        I think Len also stopped mowing his berm ages ago.

      • Dave

        I agree with you this time SCS, he has had ample opportunities, simply call a press conference, and then publicly state.

        I have been wrong of late, and for just over the last 2 years, whilst I have led the council and put a lot into the ongoing development of Auckland, it has taken its toll on my private life, and I was wrong to have an ongoing affair. I will therefore be standing down as mayor of Auckland, and not be standing for public office ever again. I take this opportunity to apologies to my wife and daughters for my behavior over the last 2 years, and to the people of Auckland for dragging the City of Auckland through the mud. I also apologies to Bevan for the affair, and sincerely hope we can all put this behind us. I ask all Media to give us some privacy, so i can rebuild my private life, my marriage and spend some quality time with my wife and daughters. To the media, there will be no further interviews or discussions.

        Len – if you indeed make a simple and HONEST heartfelt resignation, a lot would feel for you, a lot might forgive after 6 months, but it must be genuine, and you MUST disappear from public life, please Len, go spend time with your wife, take up fishing and tiddlywinks, whatever.

        Len, you hold all the power here, no one else can stop this rail line from being a massive train wreck, pick up the phone, apply the brakes, RESIGN NOW.

    • Tom

      Wrestling with pigs an’ all that…

    • dyannt

      I see it that Cam has given Len a whole week to leave with some dignity still left. It’s been Len’s choice all along.

    More suspense than a Hitchcock thriller…
    …and WOBH has probably contributed to the most loss of work productivity these past 7 or so days, than ETNZ and the America’s Cup. Probably more so, because I don’t think the America’s Cup actually made it onto CNN.

    • Blue Water Coastie

      Shit yes. I’m way behind. Hope Len is going to pay for Aucklands productivity loss personally for this ‘personal matter’, ’cause I won’t have earned enough money to pay my next rates installment…

      • blokeintakapuna

        Don’t worry – you could do what Penny Bright does and not pay your Rates either. Then put yourself forward as a serious candidate in the election for Mayor of Auckland! bwahaha!

      • Dave

        SCS. I suggest you call your mates at 30 Seconds. You could offer Lens services as a Promotion person. Just think, 30 seconds could become 2 minute man, spray and walk away. Pick one up now, will last once a month for 2 years, no need for cheap lingere or special meeting rooms. Spray and walk away, can wipe the smile off asians and mayors.

    Cam, has something good. We all know he wouldn’t be throwing down the gauntlet like this unless he was up to the challenge, BUT most importantly, Cam did say in a comment earlier that Len will definitely be gone by Friday. That tells me the amo’s loaded and he has given Len fair warning before he pulls the trigger – but he will definitely pull the trigger if Len doesn’t surrender. Gosh, I have sooo much work to catch up on when this is all done.

      • cows4me

        Oh yes, you need good waders on when visiting that blog, the shit is pretty deep.

        • DLNZ

          I occasionally read the Stranded. The stupidity of some of the comments and complete lack of logic can be mildly amusing sometimes. Like complimenting JC on his investigative journalism.

    • History of Violence

      I’m still banned from the strandard, something about Pants Down Brown and ladyboys, and how he brought this upon himself, I guess they didn’t think he was the problem.

  • Goldie

    ” I only have one way to defend myself against huge budgets and practically limitless talent and resources.”
    Umm, a correction is in order Cam.
    I do not believe that anything to do with Len Brown could possibly be described as “limitless talent”.
    I understand that Len Brown’s talent is at best 4/10.

  • Boris

    Politicking aside, I cannot understand how any sane Man with even 1 iota of pride could stand and face a city of 1.5 million & say he is capable & proud to lead that city into the future!

    It matters not, of ones political stance (left, right or centre), but more about pride in yourself and respect to your fellow citizens.

    The job will never be done properly, wholeheartedly & successfully without these 2 ingredients.

    Resignation is the only option.

    Cam, Why give fair warning? Is it a fair fight. Just publish Cam. The only people he will be fessing up to now are his spin doctor team so that they can prep up the antidotes.

    Good righteous men rejoice!

    The electorate hath made its choice

    Yet trouble brews at the joist

    For the devil hath his own petard hoist

    Sinner Len now under bombard

    Trouble is now on the cards

    A slimy slater climbs from beneath dark lair

    to hurl the first stone through the air

    The blogosphere reels,

    tales of lust, lies and haste,

    Salacious, how delicious it tastes

    Standing alone as the righteous hurl stones

    Gossip swirling engulfing poor Sinner Len on the throne

    For how can he ever atone?

    What mercy can now he be shown?

    It seems now he must reap what he’s sown?

    Then, stepping with might in to the breach

    St John of Banks doth reach,

    a lesson he hath to teach

    “Guiltless am I but tis I who resigns,”

    He cries: the Act cleanses the sins of all who follow the
    signs,

    So thus Sinner Len is absolved,

    through the sacrifice of St John all is solved

    From Epsom to Balmoral, we know what is moral

    Go and sin no more we resolve.

      That is friggin’ Awesome! Seriously cool!

      Much better than my humble effort…

    Today I collected the hard copy of the NZ Herald from my mother-in-law. Firstly I couldn’t believe how thin it has got! The photo of Len and his wife dominate the front page – his hand on her leg he looking sheepish and she looking the other way. What a set up. It is so obviously media manipulation and I am surprised journalist Bernard Orsman is going along with this. Len Brown pleads for privacy for his wife and family then talks sweet nothing talk on page 4 & 5 and on the front page with a big not so private photo of them both. Len says he is “not overly worried about how things will be judged in the years to come”. These words are from someone who is not repentant of their sin. For forgiveness to happen there has to be an out-pouring of sorrow and a repentant heart. Is there? There is a lot of explaining via the NZ Herald and sorrow and feeling sorry because the infidelity is now public knowledge and hurt has come those close to him and to some further afield. Confession to his wife and family was unavoidable. Len Brown’s hand was forced. He had no choice. Len just doesn’t get it. What makes him tick comes out in his behaviour, which has been deceitful, and after this past week, seems to be leaning more towards more the narcissistic behaviour. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/narcissistic-personality-disorder/DS00652
    Brian Edwards’ tweet gave Len Brown the best advice. The next bit of advice should be to withdraw gracefully and let AKLD Council and the newly elected councillors rebuild AKLD Council’s foundation.

    Is our Mayor a good role model for our young generation to look up to and follow?

  • Acid

    Rut roh!

  • God you are amusing, Cameron!

  • Timboh

    Gutsy post and the ball’s in Brown’s court. I find many people talking about this and I offer the latest WO news. Almost always get denial and scepticism. I offer to send the WO link, and the rest as they say is history. Thought the Smalley interview was entertaining, but surely that sort of control of the interviewer and your demeanour can only come from coaching by the great El Doctore Brian Edwards. Say it isn’t so……………

  • Momo

    Please hurry up and do it…I want him gone.
    His smug face offends me.
    As does the Herald, I’m cancelling my subscription this week. Biased morons.

    • blokeintakapuna

      Superb consumer feedback choice!

  • Sooty

    How about printing some t shirts up. Something like a picture of the Auckland skyline with a dirty big brown stain on it. I recon that would go down a treat at functions Len attends.

    • Steve (North Shore)

      Oi, there is nothing wrong with Aucklands’ beauty – just the cunt that thinks he is running it.
      You keep your own Mayor in check Sooty, Ms Weighted Down is going to fuck you guys over too

    • blokeintakapuna

      It could be the new ACC emblem too. Flags Flyin’ the Lyin’ Len’s credibility for ALL of Auckland….

  • cows4me

    Watch your back man. He’ll probably go feral like a cornered rat in the chook’s pallet drum. They can get real nasty, especially if it’s all on the line.

    • blokeintakapuna

      Love it!

  • drummerboy

    Hmmm, I hope Len doesn’t get desperate and try to hurt you cam. He seems like he could be that kind of guy.

    • I hope he does, because he’ll lose.

      • blokeintakapuna

        I hope he doesn’t, but I know he’ll lose.

  • Nechtan

    So WO has called Len out (I’m regressing to my youthful love of westerns).

    Will Len meet WO in the main street for the show down or will he ride out of town?

    I think this pic sums up Cam’s philosophy (if the link works)

  • Jimmie

    Kind of reads like an old fashioned declaration of war. So is Cam Slater the unofficial Leader of the Opposition in Auckland?

    • blokeintakapuna

      No. He’s a voice of reason and seems to largely be a lone voice against an orchestrated and coordinated Traditional Media. Apologising for political corruption with abuse of power totally undermines the TM credibility and any claim to it… And it does so to such an extent it should shame their collective, complicit, coordinanted voices.

      …and try taking an ethics complaint to the Press Council….

  • DTG

    Even Seven Sharp poking fun at Len Brown tonight…according to my wife..to be clear I don’t watch that rubbish!

  • GeorgeRomero

    Go on Cam, put that wanker out of his misery , he’s been wanking in our offices and has spilled his seed on our carpets, he needs to go Now! Weve’ got greencommies and that bastard labour party creeping around under the radar proposing stupid policies that the msm refuse to tell the public about.Chop Chop, times-a-wasting.

  • out2lunch

    Len Brown has had his chance to step down, but instead has come out guns blazing running smear campaigns and categorically denying that ‘there is more’. Only an egotistical fool would do such a thing. You’re a liar and a coward Len, you have no shame. Once the dust has settled, the whole country will be able to see the truth; something you have neglected to tell from the very start.

  • JDNZ

    Whale Oil to Len Brown (with apologies to Oliver Cromwell)

    “It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which
    you have dishonoured by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your
    practice of every vice. In the name of God, go!”

  • Mr_V4

    An odd answer to this question don’t you think?

    Have there been other affairs?
    LB: There is a matter on record in terms of my first marriage but I am not going to go
    into that … suffice to say that is a matter that has been acknowledged. It was reported. Not that I’m aware [in recent times].

    How can you not be aware, unless he’s sleep shagging or being drugged up by someone, how can you not be aware?

    • blokeintakapuna

      When you can’t answer with the complete truth least he gives himself away… So he says something in the hope no one notices he dodged the question..

      • Lion_ess

        Mr Len not very smart guy though. Everyone notices.

  • Bad__Cat

    Just a thought. How many females have a CV out there with the Mayor of Auckland as a reference, and are hoping no one will notice?

  • Steve

    Unlike the PM, Len doesn’t have a boss. He doesn’t have a caucus that can cut him loose.
    He, through his own arrogance and stupidity put himself in a position to be coerced or even blackmailed, and in high public office for that reason, and that reason alone he has to fall. A cabinet minister would have been out on his or her ear for similar shenanigans for that very reason…..imagine Len getting this txt :
    “….Hi Lenu rttn ratbg, u brok mi hart and u gonna pay with yr job and wife unless u get d papers signed u gt 2moro from mi nu man. he’s a big time developer..do it Len or u are toast……”

    or something like this
    Manchu girl whispers in councillor’s ear ” ‘I’ve got some stuff for you, if you need something from Len and in return you can give me something……”

    Then one lovely sunny morning at the cafe, councillor shoves a smiling photo of Manchu girl under Len’s nose and leans up close to Len’s ear
    ” she’s lovely isn’t she….even lovelier in the dim light of the Town hall….I want your vote tomorrow Len. I know I can trust you. Enjoy the rest of your coffee”

    He would do whatever it takes to save his life from being a train wreck. It’s why the PM can’t allow it in his cabinet. It’s why the military can’t allow it in their ranks. A coerced officer will cost lives.
    A coerced mayor will cost the ratepayer…….

  • Bryan

    Len its not stupidity its SIN stop trying to dress it up and explain it away

  • David

    Tick, tock… your time is up Mr Brown… tick, tock.
