*Anybody else waiting with baited breath to see what the Clown of Campbells bay is going to slur into the microphones this afternoon?
*Is Banksie walking around happier than a dog with two dicks today after Tamihere took time out of the pub to raise his flag in the race for the supercity mayoralty?
Personally I do not think Len Brown has a hope in hell of winning next year.
Once Sue Bradford declares she is standing for council the billboards will be up telling us that she is one heartbeat from the Mayoralty. With Browns serious health issues who would want to vote for him knowing one more greasy burger in his gob could see Bradford elevated? Certainly not the Polynesian populus of Auckland who deserted Labour en masse after Bradford stopped them thrashing their kids.
As for JT, he will split the left vote nicely giving Banksie the big job with around 30% of the vote (with a 50% turnout) and enough to win.
We can then look forward to Bomber Bradbury spontaneously combusting in a frenzy of angsty blogging.
Everything is coming together quite nicely for NZ's number 1 royalist.
Farrar on Brown, and why he must resign
