The pub here in Kingsland is packed – well over 200 people here – MPs, activists, supporters – a who’s who of NZ politics almost.
The audience is very noisy it will be hard to hear it all. But TVNZ have kindly arranged a place near the front for us, so will try my best.
Labour/Green supporters booing when ACT candidate introduced. I absolutely hate the boors who do that. You cheer your side and heckle the other side – but just booing is pathetic and puerile.
Just did a clip about the David Bain trial. Wallace did not mention he was a witness!
Each candidate saying why they should be the MP – 30 seconds each.
Now they are doing a Mt Albert trivia quiz. Lee doing well.
Vox Pop on Government’ proposed motorway option – 6 support, 4 against.
God there are a lot of MPs here – even some from Dunedin – and you paid for all their travel!
Very hard to hear. Wallace needs to take control.
Signing off – can’t hear enough – lots of fun though – people should be here.Tags: Backbenches, Mt Albert
