Support for Len Brown?

A reader emails what could be support for Len Brown…I am unsure.

Dear Mr Oil,

I feel I need to write & put pen to paper to defend my good fried Mr Len Brown.

I am not a ratepayer but I did vote for Mr Brown.

To us in South Auckland, Mr Brown is like a modern day Robin Hood. He doesn’t discriminate against us for not being ratepayers.  He know us… knows the difference between a coconut & a noodle. (I hope I don’t have to explain that to youse). 

It was Mr Brown who gave us free access to swimming pools. We used to sneak in when the attendant was on lunch break, but now we can walk in & smile at the attendant & not feel like criminals.

Mr Brown is a hard worker & obviously enjoys his work. On many many nights I have seen him is his car being driven home very late with the biggest smile on his face.

We used to get our berm mown. My neighbour Hone argues that it not actually Mr Brown who mowed my berm , but the Council workers … I still do know but what a bloody shambles & mess it is now that all you rich guys complained.

Now regarding this affair business. Firstly, just quietly, this young chinese girl is a bit of a honey & obviously knows her business. I think , just like every red blooded guy, that youse are all jealous & wishing you could have a piece of the action too.

Mr Brown is a family man with a lovely forgiving wife & kids.

Name withheld (in case you decide to visit me ) but I can meet you on neutral ground.. say at the Otara market on a Sunday morning

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.
