Limits to muckraking?

Is Len Brown serious…he wants limits to muckraking?

So, Len Brown wants limits on how much of his dirty, scummy, ratbag life can be revealed to the public. Makes no mention of limiting his dirty, scummy, ratbag habits, just that of people to expose them.

The mayor of Auckland says there doesn’t seem to be any limit to some people delving into the private lives of public figures.

Len Brown’s in the middle of the aftermath of sleazy revelations of an affair with a 32 year-old woman.

The Council CEO is carrying out an audit into Mr Brown’s expenditure to confirm his claim he spent no public money on his private life.

Len Brown told Radio Tarana no public figure is perfect.

“No excuse for what’s happened which I have acknowledged but what that does say is there’s got to be some limits here and presently there seems to be no limit.”

But he says it’s time to move on.

“And so I think it’s critical that having gone through what I went through in terms of my private life last week that we get on with the public life of the business of Auckland.”

No Len Brown, there is no limit…if you carry on behaviour that wrecked your first marriage, not to mention the marriage of the woman you carried on with, if you think it is ok to cheat on your missus, give references to your mistress, appoint her to boards, treat the town hall as your personal bordello, entertain your mistress in free or cheaper accommodation booked off the back of your position as mayor…not to mention additional contracts and everything else that is coming under the spotlight …deserves to be swept under the carpet and well have to “move on” then there is something seriously wrong in your thought processes.

This is not a private matter as you keep claiming, as soon as you issued a reference for your mistress and appointed her to a job and run one up her in the town hall it became public. If it is such a private matter why the spin doctors dealing with it? …we pay for those via our rates…why are they dealing with a private matter?

It isn’t going away and you may have David Lewis feeding you the lines that worked so well for Helen Clark but we are not going to move on….it is you who should move on.

Still playing the blame game, look in the middle you sad pathetic little man. The only person to blame is you. Leave now while you still have some dignity….oh scratch that…you want to play it this way so be it.

There won’t be any limits while you sit int he big chair…I don’t do limits.
