Lenny is running down the clock

Len Brown Smack face

With December 31 approaching fast and the Ernst & Young report more than two weeks overdue there is a thought that Len Brown is running down the clock for the departure of current Auckland CEO Doug McKay.

Both Brown and McKay are lawyered up and the report is rumoured to be going through a white washing process that is vehemently opposed by Doug McKay.

On top of that sources say that Len Brown and his wife have been required to sign statutory declarations in respect of details in the report. the legal costs are mounting.

To further add to the delays EY has requested details from the hotels involved and have been told to naff off citing the Privacy Act. When requesting a waiver from Brown this has been refused. The mayor is in lockdown.    

All of this is designed to run down the clock on the current CEO who finishes up in his role on December 31. Brown’s hope is the new CEO is far more compliant than Doug McKay currently is. Based on the information coming out of Tauranga this could well be the case.

With more that two weeks of delays this is fast getting past a joke.

The mayor would do well to stop annoying the neighbours in Arney Road, it is getting embarrassing, and concentrate on doing his job for as long as he has it. It can’t be long before a resident records the scenes on their smart phone.

The problem Len Brown has with that though is no one wants to be seen with him. At the recent music awards in South Auckland, the former chest bumping, high fiving, singing twat was way gone, instead a lonely figure was seen sitting at a table with people forced by their positions to be there until they could politely abandon the pretence and shuffle off to “circulate”.

All jokes aside, it is time the EY report was presented, without the drafts and re-drafts. Aucklander deserve the facts of Len Brown’s untoward behaviour, his favourtism towards his mistress and his unauthorised entertainment obtained by using his position.
