Len Brown thinks he can shrug this off and get away with his pants down behaviour. I don’t think he understands the rising anger at him across the city.

A reader emails:

After watching the live feed from the Auckland Council meeting and listening the various arguments about why Pants Down Brown should or should not be punished, it is patently obvious that nobody can remove the slimy prat from his seat of power.

I noticed with rising anger, as he regained his seat in the meeting and listened to the weak telling off, he only said that he would try his best to abide by the councils statement.

It is also patently obvious that he is firmly in control of the Auckland Council, apart from 5 ethical council members, who sought to remove him from office. 

Pants Down Brown was wholly arrogant and did not give a rats backside about any actions the council, or us as Aucklanders, can do do him. He promptly moved on to the next point of business and clearly intends to do what he wants.

After reading various comments and statements about the mayor, in various forums, I am unwilling to accept his continuing tenure as mayor of our city and vow to maintain the pressure on him to resign his position.

There is also little point in regurgitation all the unsavory, dishonest and unethical actions of the man; however, given his arrogance and determination to remain in power, I am confident more revelations will come to light, that will further embarrass us and make life tough for the bastard.

The list of his indiscretions are far too many and of a serious nature to allow this to continue.

It must be stated, we also have an obligation to seek a remedy to this situation by seeking an amendment to the local body act, or whatever legislation that covers this situation from happening again.

It is the responsibility of anybody who has any shred of decency, honesty and ethics to ensure this prat of a mayor is removed from office and his type can’t inflict his particular brand of sleaze and dishonesty upon us again.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
