Why are Labour and Len Brown so slow?
For the love of Christ - why are Labour and Len Brown so flat footed? I suggested a come back for the Hero parade 15 days ago as a way to counter the rising homophobia...

Hero-style mardi gras back on city agenda
Prime Minister John Key has announced the possible return of a gay and lesbian mardi gras-style festival - 10 years after a lack of funding led to the end of Auckland's Hero Parade.
Mr Key made the announcement at yesterday's Big Gay Out in Pt Chevalier, where he was joined by Auckland Central MP Nikki Kaye, who said the Government, council and tourism council-controlled organisations still had to calculate the economic feasibility of an annual event similar to Sydney's Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.
...Labour and Len should be kicking themselves at being brilliantly snookered by National's most liberal MP. Bringing back the Hero Parade is something any Auckland leader with vision should have been calling for.
