It's a big day for Mayor Goff, as he faces his council critics at a "free and frank" discussion over dissatisfaction about his leadership. ...He didn't tell Mike about the stadium report either, if that helps, guys.

Is Auckland transport really THAT bad? His Worship The Mayor reckons it ain't as bad as the rumours say... And losing the Western Springs Speedway in favour of the cricket, just who's behind this aye?! Mike gets the scoop from the man himself.

Beaches, rivers, America's Cup, storms, forestry, oil, transport, and even a freaking heart attack. We've discussed it all, but there's been one thing - according to Mikey, anyway - that's slipped under the radar. We finally talk to His Worship about the future of the notoriously rectangular Waterfront stadium. Unfortunately, Mayor Goff couldn't attend the morning rave for this important discussion. We forgive him.

Think Auckland Council's doing a rubbish job? Phil reckons that's a rubbish opinion! The Auckland mayoral staff may have scored poorly on a recent commitment survey but His Worship insists this is a very minor thing. What's important right now? Cracking down on illegal rubbish dumping and NOT blaming immigration for poverty rates, that's for sure.

The Opposition leader's just started some beef with His Worship. Not fiscally responsible, you say? Bollocks! Phil's got the 411 on future council plans, as the best mayors do.

His Worship The Mayor's got a new spring in his step. Back to work after only two weeks recovery (much to his wife and advisors' dismay), old mate Phil's talking transport and regional fuel tax today.

Boats have been floating on Phil's mind with the upcoming America's Cup, regional fuel tax is slowly on the rise, and there's talk of more funding for public transport to reduce the number of those pesky cars.

A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing, particularly when it comes to protecting our native flora and fauna. From traipsing your dirty boots all over the roots of dieback vulnerable kauri in our forests to bemoaning tree removal that's _actually_ protecting other trees... let's all take a deep breath and do our research, shall we?

Your Worship's been making lunches all morning. Up to two-thousand 'Eat My Lunches', in fact. (...He had help.) He's also looking to gather your rates dollars to fix Auckland's sh*tty (figuratively) traffic congestion and sh*tty (literally) beach water quality problems, but everyone seems a bit reluctant to stump up. Is that fair?

Your Worship had a lovely big Waitangi Day, thank you for asking. But what about this weather? With king tides and downpours leading to tragic losses this week, what plans does Auckland have to avoid such consequences in the future?
