WHY CAN'T THE CENTRE/RIGHT IN AUCKLAND GET ITS ACT TOGETHER?

Phil Goff must have thought all his Christmases had come at once with the news that John Palino was entering the race for the Auckland mayoralty ensuring the centre/right vote would now be split three ways and virtually guaranteeing Goff's election as Len Brown's successor.  

Don't know what's in the water in Jaffaland but the inability of the centre/right to decide on a single candidate is a tragedy.    Egos and personalities clearly trumps the greater good and that has to be sad for Auckland.

The one hope remaining is that the centre/right will win a majority on the Council and caucus together to prevent Phil from doing what's in his DNA ... spending ratepayer's money on soft, feel good, projects.    Not certain this will happen however ... some of the present bunch of centre/right Councillors (so called) have shown themselves as 'soft cocks' prepared to buckle when push comes to shove.

Let's hope the electorate remembers who they are.
