Project Rehabilitate Len

January 14th, 2014 at 12:00 pm by David Farrar

The Herald reports:

The mayoral office is working on ways to rebuild ’s shattered reputation after his sex scandal. The strategy involves setting outan action plan and contacting communities.

Good to see Len’s six spin doctors hard at work.

Mr Brown and his advisers are considering a new year speech with a focus on public transport, in which Mr Brown wants to make a start on the city rail link in 2016.

Sounds good. Just tell us where the money is coming from.

Meanwhile, the right-wing local body ticket Affordable Auckland is organising a “Stand Down Len Brown” march up Queen St at noon on February 22.

Leader Stephen Berry and spokesman Will Ryan said the march was not so much about Mr Brown’s private life as his undeclared activities and poor financial management.

May take more than a speech from Len to make this go away.

    Breaking news, excerpts of Len’s Public transport speech has been leaked:

    Auckland needs public transport, we need rail, we need a rail tunnel. I’m passionate about Auckland and rail. I’d love to be responsible for getting this tunnel built. Call it a tunnel of love if you will. For the remainder of my term as mayor, I’m going to dedicate myself to this tunnel of love. It’s all I’ll work on, day-in, day-out, in and out, in and out of my tunnel of love.

    Len should put himself out of his misery and just go away. He can’t do the job. How can’t front up. He can’t build alliances with the opposition. No one trusts him except those whose salary depends on him. He is selfish because Auckland is suffering.

    Why doesn’t he get the message. Gripping on to the salary and benefits as he is.

    David Cunliffe should be having a wee word to him. He was championed as a Labour mayor – he must be an unwanted distraction is election year.

    Quite true Burt.

    President Hollande apparently is having an affair with someone 18 years his junior. Worse, he rode on a scooter and wore a crash helmet and two police officers followed him. To make matters worse, the house of his lover may be owned by the mafia. In addition, his girlfriend has had a breakdown. Who is France’s “First Girlfriend”?

    77% of French people simply don’t care. :)

    Closer magazine reported in its edition published on Friday that Hollande, 59, has been having an affair with actress Julie Gayet, 41.

    The weekly glossy printed photos which it claimed showed Gayet and Hollande arriving separately at a flat near the presidential Elysee Palace for secret trysts.

    Hollande would reportedly arrive at the flat on a chauffeur-driven scooter and had fresh croissants delivered to the love nest in the mornings by his personal bodyguards.

    Goodness, in France they do things differently…chauffeur-driven scooters,fresh croissants and bodyguards. Poor old Len got the rough end of the stick.

    The mayoral office is working on ways to rebuild Len Brown’s shattered reputation after his sex scandal.

    I can provide advice free of charge:

    1. Brown can partly redeem himself to the ratepayers of the City, by resigning.

    2. Then he can work full time to try and rebuild any relationships left on the home front.

    3. Because his political future is stuffed.

    4. And his reputation (sic) is beyond repair.

    5. And Brown’s 6 (SIX???) spin weasels can pack their bongos and piss off too. If they’re being remunerated by performance, they should be sent an invoice.

    As an Auckland ratepayer (via my business), I don’t believe that having a team of highly-paid spin doctors working long hours to rebuild the mayor’s reputation is a good use of my money.

    Len Brown is a bit like Russell Packer. He needs to get away out of the public eye (after resigning), make the changes he needs to in his life, and then test his rehabilitation with Auckland voters in 2016. No-one wants to be seen with him at the moment, and there is little chance of him being an effective advocate for Auckland with the Government. Even the Labour Party seems to have wiped its hands of the man they once referred to as the “Labour Mayor”.

    “Love the way the Left will always defend their own however odious…”

    There’s certainly some of this at play. Tom Gould at The Standard:

    The “chaos at the top table” is political. Party political. Ideological. Just like their tea party fellow travellers in the US, the rabid right Tories here in Auckland are donkey deep in rendering the city ungovernable. Their only solution is complete capitulation to them and their agenda. So this is actually now a test of the left, not the right. Unless the left get in behind Brown and his agenda for the city, and confront the politics for what they are, the right will get it all. Including selling the city’s assets to their mates, and regressive high universal charges, and a rates cut, and the rest of the neo-con play book. So it’s now up to the left. Maybe they actually want the rabid right to win, to feed their righteous indignation and moral superiority?

    Brown’s (lack of) competence to do his job isn’t considered at all.

    There are, of course, which bigger fish to fry in 2014 as this funny little economy lifts itself further off the canvas and yet there are even more folk in Queen St armed with a begging bowl. (As an aside, some are a adopting a new MO that takes me back to my big OE – of accosting passers by with variations on the theme of hey mate, I have just home from Aussie and I’m a bit short, could you give us some money towards the bus fare home to [insert location]). And if you want a decent analysis of the living wage non-argument – head to Eric Crampton @Offsetting Behaviour. IMHO his, often excellent and readily understandable, work needs to be more widely circulated.

    Anyway, I will make a prediction. I’m not big on predictions – but as a ratepayer, I don’t think the ratepayers of Auckland will accept another dime being spent on the current mayor and the only rehab he should be doing is with relations at home. His political legacy is gone – but it will be a long and lonely retirement if his kids don’t speak to him. As a reminder, they are the ones who Jane Clifton so succinctly labelled as being used as some sort of human shield. (I’m not a big reader of the Listener, but I do have elderly relatives. And by the by, David Parker even fails the softest of all interviews by Guyon Espiner in the latest edition – read while making one of said relatives a cup of tea).

    Forget the big signs, such as abandonment by the opinion shapers on the left. And the withering letter to the editor by Peter Clapshaw, who in days gone by was a terrific lawyer and a very principled company director and a nice guy to boot. Its the little signs that I think are the most telling. We hear that corporate Auckland don’t want to know him as being bad for brand, that he is not welcome at any school or church function etc etc – but when you see that one of the best pr people in the business, David Lewis, is devoting his time to the image of other clients such as property developer John Darby (read into that what you may) it tells you that Len is beyond rehab. Instead, his former support base will be working hard to find a replacement who is palatable to Len’s former catchment.

    In the meantime, the important work for the country’s biggest city, particularly spear heading the Unitary Plan and the associated initiatives for which Len might have otherwise been able to claim some credit – sit in limbo. We deserve a real mayor – and team that got Len elected will know this. The country’s biggest city can’t be self-propelled for the thick end of 3 years.

    Who wants to be French? There is very little about the affairs of their latest President that is either surprising or relevant. Instead, their heads of state seem to exist only as a warning to our kids that behaving like a shit only lands you in it….

    Some projects are too uneconomic financially, emotionally and morally to even attempte to undertake.

    That said, this is not the case regarding Len Brown because to rehabilitate means by definition that there are a few core points that can be worked on and be brought back up to speed. In Browns case there is no base for any remedial work to even start at, he is completely hollow.

    Keeping Stock 1.43pm: I agree about the cost spin doctors looking to rebuild Len’s reputation, I also don’t think it can possibly work. It’s not what people voted for, and it’s not a function of the Mayor’s to be rehabilitated from his own failings at further public cost. Your suggestion that he leave, and maybe throw his hat in the ring next time round is fairly sound. However I think he’s struggling with the reality that Christmas coming and going hasn’t made this go away, and that nor will another Christmas. It’s all too raw. I believe that’s sinking in now and damaging his confidence. Len has always seemed to be upbeat, enthusiastic, confident that he can rouse people to get behind him. I think he realises those opportunities are gone now, any jokes would fall flat, attempts at building a rapport and confidence strained and unconvincing with a lot of people disapproving of him. He knows it right now I think. It’s nonsense to think that anything dreamed up by a spin doctor, highly paid, and merely doing a job, can have a sense of sincerity in the thought that really Len can pick up the pieces as though magically turning back the clock. There’s more to be found out about Len and he knows that better than anybody. If he does go, as he should, I don’t think he will be back in any meaningful way. If he stays the tension will simply remain which is also something Aucklanders didn’t vote for.

    Any way on a positive note for the city I believe Council now mow over grown berms and bill the property owners. They are certainly mowing them and its my assumption that there must be an intention to charge though I doubt there is legal way to do that. But who knows it might be an idea of one of the spin doctors – who realised a ‘dirty’ city is possibly reflection on a ‘dirty’ Mayor and was something that could be tidied up – in part at least.

    It’s the corporate minority vs the public majority and those who serve their interests.

    I predict that 2014 will be the year of corrupt corporate scandals, particularly involving casinos and casino economies, that will shake the perception of New Zealand’s ‘least corrupt’ global status to its very core, the ramifications of which will be politically significant, on a number of fronts……

    (Just like the Police corruption scandals in NSW in the late 1980s, which resulted in legislation that established the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC).)

    In my considered opinion, this private prosecution will be just the start…….

    Kind regards,

    Penny Bright
