Meanwhile, back in Auckland…

With all this Colin Craig business, the local body hopefuls can’t get much cut through. ?But that also means some amazingly alarming things are slipping by unnoticed:


We used to joke that Phil was just like Len, but with his pants on. ?Turns out we were wrong. ?He’s worse than Len with his pants on.

There will be a day we wish Phil was scoring on the hired help instead of introducing more new ways to get money out of people’s pockets.

What angers me most is that he’s been allowed to sleepwalk to victory because National do not have a coherent plan for local body politics. ?This means all our major cities, and some smaller ones, are being run by “independent” mayors that have deep-deep socialist leanings.

We really should not be surprised that they are constantly coming for more money.
