Words of impending doom from the ratbag mayor


Len Brown says he is going to stay.

These are words of doom.

Mr Brown gave an assurance there was nothing else out there and made a commitment to work closer with councillors on a common agenda in the new year.

I can’t believe that Len Brown would just flat out lie like that. He knows what was omitted from the EY report. He knows that there isn’t just Bevan Chuang, he knows the state he left the hotel rooms in, he knows how the books were made and how the upgrades were obtained, he knows what went on behind curtains in the swanky harbour side hotel restaurant….he knows there is much, much more to come out.

How can he sit there and promise there is nothing else to come out?

The only explanation I can figure is that he has Narcissistic Personality Disorder, and when you see his other statements about staying on you can see the proof.

But Mr Brown told media this afternoon that after “genuine, deep reflection” he had decided not to stand down, and called his council’s decision to censure him appropriate.

“This is a fair but very firm direction to myself and I have indicated to them that I accept that that is an appropriate direction.”

He said his “passion for the city and my view as to how we go forward” had “maintained my equilibrium and ultimately my preparedness to stay here and continue to do the work”.

“But for those that feel I haven’t been contrite enough, I’ve really spent nine weeks in fairly clear contrition across all my personal and professional life.

”… This has been the most difficult time of my life.”

All I can say at this point is that his life is going to get much more difficult.

Ratbags be ratbags and we for sure have a ratbag mayor.

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.
