Oh, well. In light of the Herald’s story today, let me think about that again.
Um, a quick google or herald search brings up nothing about Len Brown today... care to link, or give us a clue what you'e on about?

Turns out Cameron Brewer did, sort of, declare his freebies, but only declared his Gold Coast junket on the day John Drinnan asked him about it in September 2011. Also never mentioned his SkyCity Rugby World Cup VIP freebie at any meeting where the council was deliberating casino policy. And still didn’t make any formal declaration to the register of interests.

Talk about not mentioning things! Yeah the comments are worth a read…
Its christmas after all... Time to contemplate etc
And as a final Christmas present, Quackers makes a strong bid for the position of Auckland’s village idiot:
Auckland councillor Dick Quax, an outspoken critic of Mayor Len Brown, has called on him to withdraw from hosting Prince William and wife Catherine early next year.
The couple and their baby George will visit New Zealand in April.
Yesterday, Quax said Brown should not be greeting the royals after his two-year extramarital affair with Bevan Chuang and a review that found he had accepted free hotel rooms and upgrades.
If extramarital affairs render someone unfit to be in the royal presence, poor George is going to spending those Balmoral family Christmases in the kennels with great-granny’s corgis and no time at all with the paternal grandfather and his second wife. Can we just declare this shark well and truly jumped, and ask our elected representatives to do some bloody work?
Cathy Casey says on Facebook that she was horrified to see her name on the list of non-declarers, as she did and even remembered the date she did. Turns out putting her name on the list was a mistake.
