An email from a reader about Len Brown

Sometimes my readers say things better than I can.

Dear Cam, thank you for highlighting the exploits of Len Brown.

While I and others know and expect you to air your right wing views, most people think the Herald is an impartial publication dedicated to the honest and accurate reporting of news and current events. Clearly the reporting and investigation of the Brown situation shows this to be otherwise.

Irrespective of how it is portrayed by various left wing publications, Brown used his position to chase a vulnerable woman who was intoxicated by positions of power.

The bottom line, as I see it is simply this;

Brown chased Bevan – not the other way round. Clearly this shows intent from Brown, Not exactly the honey trap the Herald are trying to portray it as.

Brown ONLY admitted the affair when he knew Bevan was going public – not out of any sense of moral responsibility or loyalty to his wife. Simply put, he was ONLY trying to protect his job and minimise his own scumbag actions. 

Brown used council time and resources to conduct his dirty campaign to have intimate relations with Bevan.

Brown used his position to get Bevan a job with a council run organisation – clearly a conflict of interest. To say that she didn’t get the job because of Brown’s reference is juvenile in the extreme and beg’s the question of what his name was on the reference list for in the first place then….?

This whole matter highlights a lack of moral character and most definitely, overall judgment.

All of this shows that it is most definitely NOT a “personal” matter, as he did it on council time, in council property, used his position to get rooms at flash hotels and most damming of all, Brown used his position as mayor to further his carnal interests in a vulnerable woman.

Brown is not the person I want to represent Auckland to the national or international community.

Cheers and keep up the great work.

    Truthful letter, in more ways than one.

    Could you imagine Brown on a visit to China for example.

    • Does the mayor have an interpreter with him when he travels to Asia?

      • blokeintakapuna

        Probably a male one from now on… If ever again.

          Imagine the expenses for his trip. All females accompanying the mayor on any travel or to any functions will need Chastity belts. Please see Human resources department head for a voucher for your Chastity belt.

          Males should either be Gay, or very unattractive so the Mayor is not aroused.

          (NB: I am assuming he is not Gay or Bi……… Yet :) )

    Lenny boy caught with his fingers in the honey pot not seduced by the honey trap as the lefty media would try and sell it.
    WO breaking this has changed the NZ media landscape and im getting popcorn as the feral lefty have backed journo’s start running for cover.
    The mud they have been slinging at Cam and Co is because he has shown them up by breaking the story of 2013.
    And they hate it.
    As Maccers say…..IM LOVING IT

      Just for Lenny!

        And, their latest special. A Happy Brown Meal.

        Rush in to get your Brown Burger with short shoestring fries and water. But hurry, this special only lasts 2 minutes.

    there is a saying, when a man marries his mistress he creates a vacancy.

    • Toryboy

      Yes, one of Sir James Goldsmith’s better sayings. Goldsmith also said “Tolerance is a virtue, but tolerance leads to apathy, which leads to decadence”

    • Bad__Cat

      Brilliant. Never heard that before, but seen it in practice so often.

  • lofty

    Reminds me of a saying from Mahatma Ghandi in regard to the spin going on from the Herald and Dirty Lens office.

    “First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, and then you win.”

  • Brian of Mt Wellington

    Like I said today on another social media site, all these people who are saying this is a private matter including Brown himself then why are the ratepayers of Auckland paying for his PR team to make Brown come out of this smelling like roses. Most people when they stuff up have to pay their own way out of it and can’t rely on the cash cow that is the council coffers. I hope someone asks him that question when he decides to come out of hiding now behind his wifes skirt now he has finished using his kids to his advantage. Utterly shameful for someone who purports to follow the religious faith so closely.

    Meanwhile over at the Stranded… the delusions continue… I nearly inhaled my coffee reading this:

    “I don’t believe that many people read WO’s blog.

    And investigative journalism isn’t dead. We have the likes of Hager, Stephenson. John Campbell has done some very good pieces.”

      they must run out of sand-pits to bury their heads in soon

  • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

    Nice letter bro. But Lentils is here to stay. So suck it in and get on with life. Nobody can do a damn thing.

  • Whafe

    Another extremely sensible letter from a sensible person…

    It stuns me that the piss in the pockets of the left media truly don’t read this sensible letter and go, oh wow, it is really not complex, the mayor has been despicable with his behaviour… Really not hard…

    There is no clear reason that I have seen that points to anything more than biased media I hey can’t read the above letter and click to the power tripping of No Shame Len brown.

  • hunk4hire .

    Brown’s first marriage ended because the pint-size porker was “playing away”. The present scandal is not something new for him. He has “form”, as they say.

      Ah! The plot thickens.
