John Tamihere talks mistakes, Trump and what he'd do as Auckland Mayor

Nick Truebridge Reporter from East & Bays Courier

John Tamihere arrives nearly 30 minutes late for our interview at Stuff's Auckland newsroom.

There is no apology. Nor is there a handshake when he leaves the building.

But this is Tamihere's style – he's unapologetic, he calls things exactly how he sees them and, at times, he will offend you.

Please add NP to your comment if it is not for print.

Ahoy ye families!

The Team from Auckland Museum

Join our adventurers this Night at the Museum!

Bring a torch, explore the darkened galleries - a fun night-time adventure for the whole family this school holidays!

Suffer a sailor’s life on-board, as we navigate the southern oceans with Cook and company. It’s going to be all hands-on deck as you learn how to behave in His Majesty’s Royal Navy – avoid the dreaded cat o’ nine tails and sample some questionable 19th-century naval food.

Have you got what it takes? Well, let’s batten down the hatches and join in the fun in this overboard quest.

This event sells out, so book your tickets now to avoid missing out.

Poll: What is the top issue you want the local council to focus on?

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

The local elections are a great opportunity to decide on who we want to represent our communities over the next three years. With elections just around the corner, this is a good time to pinpoint the issues that affect you and are important to you.

Being clear on this is a first step in knowing what you want your local councillors to support or who to vote for. What are the issues you want your next local council to focus on?
