Hard on the heels of Goff's revolutionary new policy of stealing from employers to bribe unemployable voters from the nether regions of Auckland's seedier suburbs comes Lyen Brown's piece de resistance.
He's announced a huge decrease in the rates paid by his mates from same nether regions and lo and behold this largess is funded by a whopping INCREASE in the rates to be extorted from those suburbs whose residents never in a million years would vote for Brown.
Adolf would like to know how many people are enrolled to vote in these various suburbs but I'll bet dollars to doughnuts that this was the calculus used in setting the relative rates. He's bought the next mayoral election using money from North Shorians, Epsomites and Howickeans.
You've got to hand it to Labour. They are past masters at cheating and stealing.
