    I think he will finally get the message when he has to pay for it all himself - no one will fund his campaign so he won't run.

    That was my first thought when I heard the 'news'.

    I'm just defending my colleagues at the traffic ops and corridor operations teams about the positioning of the filling machines =)

    He should be ashamed to be a kiwi, with that kind of parallel parking skills!

    Apathy.
    Fewer than half of eligible voters will bother to vote.

    Why ?
    Because they know it won't make any real difference.

    Maybe we should prepare for another couple of years under Len Brown when he gets re-elected...

    Someone new will make the right noises for 6 months; and then reality will kick in as the flood of new arrivals continues to choke Gotham.

    One thing that definitely won't change with someone new; that is the moaning and complaining on forums such as this.

    started a topic who will be the next leader of the super city?

    who will be the next leader of the super city?

    Phil Goff has given the strongest hint yet he'll run for mayor of Auckland next year.

    A possible contest between the former Labour leader and a rejuvenated John Banks is shaping up in the city where gridlock, rates, and soaring property prices are a perennial political migraine for incumbent Len Brown.

    This morning Mr Banks, a two-time former Auckland mayor and one-time Act Party leader, wouldn't rule out running in the race.

    Mr Goff today said he was doing his "homework" on the 2016 race.

    Political scientist Dr Bryce Edwards said Mr Goff had a better shot at winning the mayoralty than Mr Banks, Mr Brown or National MP Maurice Williamson.

    "I think Phil Goff's chances of winning are very strong. The winning formula Phil Goff has is he's on the right of the left -- he's a much more centrist politician than most other likely candidates."

    He said a strong track record, name recognition, and a reputation for "competence" would be of possible benefit to Mr Goff's chances in 2016.

    Dr Edwards said he saw no reason for believing Mr Brown's chances of being re-elected had improved recently.
