Lyin’, loopy, lusty, lascivious Len wants to run for mayor again

Someone needs to tell Len Brown ‘e’s dreamin’.

Auckland Mayor Len Brown has told an inner circle of friends and advisers he plans to seek re-election next year.

But rather than throw their weight behind the under-fire mayor, it is understood some supporters have told him he has no chance of winning a third term and should step aside.

They do not see any way back for Mr Brown, who has struggled in the wake of an extramarital affair and widespread criticism over management of the city’s finances.

Mr Brown would not answer questions about his political plans

I’m going to let the pictures tell the story

And then….


Oh dear oh dear.   Used Bernard Orsman to test the waters, and found them to not only be frigid, but also toxic.

I wonder why?


The NZ Herald’s attempt to resurrect Len’s chances of becoming Auckland’s mayor in 2016 hit a brick wall.

The pushing of Phil Goff is interesting.

If Brown does stand again then Phil Goff certainly won’t stand, but there are doubts over the relevance of claims that Goff will stand anyway.

Labour people I’ve spoken to tell me that Goff’s ego won’t let him stand for the mayoralty, he believes that New Zealand needs him in a far bigger role offshore. A lame mayoralty won’t suffice to quell the ego in Phil Goff.

Added to that the loose scratch available for Goff is thin, and he was always tits at fundraising.

Basically anyone pushing Goff’s barrow is either being deliberately mischievous or interviewing their keyboard, the latter though seems to be the M.O. of Herald staff.

Personally I hope that Len Brown does stand again, the third party campaigns will be awesome.
