Have you ever thought of a rates decrease Len…ever?

Len Brown really takes the cake…when he isn’t slapping his face , running a glad eye over asian beauties, or lying through his teeth about his position on almost everything, he is shamelessly running his lies about his never ending rates increases.

Here is his latest line:

He doubted the significant rates cuts promised by Palino would be feasible. “I have nine years’ experience of setting rates increases in and around the rate of inflation,” he said. “People can promise all sorts of things, but I don’t just make promises … I actually deliver, and that is the difference.

“What is important to me is what is important to most Aucklanders. And that means tackling issues like rates, transport, employment and building more houses.” 

Yes Len, you do deliver…rates increases, and it is a lie that they are around the rate of inflation. Len Brown uses what he likes to call the COuncil internal rate of inflation…which is a made up figure because the biggest contributor to council inflation is his rates increases. Conveniently for the Mayor this is 4 or 5% above the real rate of inflation that everyone else uses.

When are we going to get a proper politician prepared to say no to people, and reduce rates and waste?

Still…anyone but Len is the catch cry…and John Palino has the best chance of tipping the little flake out.
