Len wants protection? I thought catholics didn’t wear frangers?

Len Brown is still carping on about protection of politician’s private lives while they conduct public duties…I mean seriously is this guy on crack?

[H]e said the situation had raised questions about how much of a politician’s private life should be made public.

“Some time down the track it might be useful, in a wider context of New Zealand and how we do our politics, to have some ability for elected representatives to – for better or for worse – maintain their private lives while they’re carrying out their public duties,” he said.

“There’s got to be some protection here and presently there’s just nothing. And that I think provides for a conundrum, not just in our democracy, but in all.”

Earlier he said the affair was a private issue that had been “used in a public way in the most horrendous fashion”. 

There he is blaming other again for his own poor judgment. If he wants protection then he should wear a rubber, might not have got the clap then.

Why is he demanding protection…he shagged his mistress in the town hall, in his office, in the Ngati Whatua room, he obtained freebie rooms from hotels using his position to run one up the mistress, and he gave her a reference and appointed her to a board….and he thinks this is a private matter?

On top of that he has used ratepayer funded spin weasels to run interference on this “private matter”. If it is to be private then how come public funded staff are helping him.

I bet the apologists at the NZ Herald will now be wondering just precisely what sort of draconian anti-media regulations he might like to see to “protect” politicians from their dodgy ratbag behaviour being outed.
