The Whaleoil “Len Brown” investigation – reviewing our options

Being against pokies and voting for the Sky Convention Centre and then receiving and not declaring not quite $40,000 worth of free SkyCity accommodation isn’t corruption is it?

Of course not, it’s but an error of judgement.

Giving three different answers to LGOMIA requests covering essentially the same question isn’t breaking the rules in anyway is it?

Of course not, it’s but a clerical error.   Anyway, you can file a corrected return.  Problem over.

Accepting a trip to Hong Kong, fully funded by the Hong Kong tax payer is not declared on the register of pecuniary interest is it?

No, just slipped his mind.  The first, 2nd and 3rd time he was asked if there was anything else to talk about, when he said  “I have made full and total disclosure”.

My colleagues in the media will act abhorred, as they are paid to do, but it appears that we may have to go back into the gutter.  

Were all those free hotel stays where Len was either with family or by himself, a mere 20 minutes from home, truly only with family?

It appears the major is still hiding behind his family – which is rather dramatic, as by and large his family don’t want anything to do with him.  But it does give it that “private time” patina.

Now, as has been disclosed, generally agreed and never refuted, Len Brown has had more than one Mistress.  We know of the full identity of at least three others.

And there is the matter of mistresses that are contracted by the hour, or night.  I think that’s a possibility that needs some further digging.

It appears that Doug McKay has declared himself powerless to do anything about the runaway train that is Len Brown, instead expressing his admiration for Brown as a mayor.  He feels that any censure, if there will be any at all, should come from his fellow councilors.

So here’s the setup:  Oops, Sorry, formal caution by council, update the paper work.

“It will not ever happen again, I am sorry, it was an error of judgement”

Just like last time.

And… the time before that.

It will never happen again, until next time.  When, IF he is caught, he will involke the “Oops, I did it again” clause of the Brown Defence.

I realise my readers have been baying for blood.  But it appears that thanks to Pants Down Brown, we can look forward to another few months of time slots, column inches and blog posts to marvel at the man’s megalomania.

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.
