    It is sad but we will end up with either the Nat fuckwit or the Labour fuckwit as the next Auckland mayor – rates will continue to go up along with the numbers of do nothing idiots employed in the council offices a pox on both of the fuckers…… in the immortal words of Russell “gimme back my rwates……gimme back my rwates !”

    Yes – supporting penguins

    Does anyone have a link to the exact quote he gave the Dom Post a few years ago when he said if he ran on his real policies he’d never get any votes..?

    John Banks: making sure the stray cats dont go without.

    Neither banks or brown are worthy of the job. the left v right thing is bogus. i am voting for that craig fella.

  10. Graeme 10

    i dont know his name, thats how interested i am in this thing. i know banks isnt telling the truth, and brown can not be trusted. so, i go with the craig fella, what ever happens from that point forward i dont care i didnt vote for them.

      Er, you do know that the Craig fella is a right wing crackpot, Graeme? If you truly believe that the left/right thing is bogus, best you vote Jedi, Macgillicuddy or one of the other ‘fun’ candidates.

      • comedy 10.1.1

        yeah Graeme don’t ya know anyone who doesn’t vote for Brown is a right wing crackpot and anyone who doesn’t vote for Banks is a left wing crackpot – how dare you vote outside of the Nat or Lab mainstream.

          C….go away fool…you’re doing nothing more than performing an act of indecent exposure. everyone knows what you think, and nobody cares.

          • comedy

            “everyone knows what you think, and nobody cares.”

            ….yet still you continue to read it and feel the need to ejaculate your paff.

            • bbfloyd

              i come her to read informed opinion, when it’s on offer. you don’t offer more than irritating schoolboy namecalling…

              if you would try to put forward opinions that have some intellectual basis, then i would be happy to hear them. have you got it in you? try it, it’s not that hard, really.

      • Vicky32 10.1.2

        The Craig fella advertises on Gmail! That’s where I discovered he’s a RWNJ… 🙂

    • come get some 10.2

      craig? the dude that wants to beat his child? and thinks a system of 4 seat personal monorails is a viable option for public transport

      The guys a fucking idiot

  11. Craig Glen Eden 11

    Why cant Brown be trusted given the great work that he has led in the South Auckland Communities. I accept he is not perfect neither am I! Or have you been fooled/duped by the right wing smear campaign over the credit card bollocks.

    Just another small point,voting for someone who you know will do nothing means you have not voted to solve the problems.I accept that democracy also has its problems but Democracy will/ can only work if we rock up to elected people and hold them accountable for their actions policies/slogans. So if Brown gets in and dosn’t do things that build stronger communities I for one will be actively engaging him and I would hope someone like your self who obviously does care to some level would do the same.
    Come on Graham vote Brown .

    PS Browns not my cousin by the way either.

    How about:
    Affordable progress from a can-do council that will get the job done – as soon as we take out another mortgage on your children’s souls

    On another note:
    On my voting paper it showed Banksie as being an “independent” which brings about:


  13. Irascible 13

    Banks, when campaigning as a Nat candidate, once told some voters in Whangarei that they needed to get a Labour voter off their street as he was reducing the value of the properties on it by $10,000.
    His policies for Auckland would (and have ) reflect this unchanged attitude to people.

    John Banks: “It’s fair enough that women are paid less than men”

    Interesting Jeremy. I will pass that on to a few interested parties. More detail though please – what context.

  15. Roger 15

    John Banks: “I don’t have a council credit card…but I do have a ratepayer funded garage for my Bentley!”

    John Banks: “A city without people stumbling around drunk at 5am is not a world class city”
