In this morning's Herald, I see that Manukau Mayor and Labour man Len Brown is calling for much lower spending limits for the Auckland Mayoralty race next year.
Yet this follows on from his bragging in the Herald two months prior that he was going to spend up to one million dollars, in a campaign just like Obama (dry retching can commence). Apart from the obvious hypocrisy of the man, I couldn't help but notice he came out on the same day that the Labour losers in Parliament also started debating the spending limits.
What a coincidence. I wouldn't be surprised at all to learn that Len Brown takes his orders from the Labour Party headquarters in Wellington.
But those Labourites (Len and the ones in Wellington) are certainly true to form - they will do anything they can to choke off the right for people to fundraise and spend their own money in election campaigns.
An interesting idea, but one no political party will touch
