Andrew Williams for NZ First?

August 3rd, 2010 at 10:00 am by David Farrar

An interesting speculation has reached me. will of course not be elected Auckland Mayor. I doubt he’d even make 5%.  He is unlikely to even make Council – his sole chance is that 15 people are standing in his ward so one may be able to get elected off a very small percentage.

So what will he do if he is not on Council? Well he is consumed with a loathing for Rodney Hide, as is Winston Peters. So the whisper I hear is Andrew Williams will be a NZ First candidate in a top six list spot.

For those who doubt it, remember Tim Shadbolt was once a NZ First prospective candidate.

A possible caucus of Winston, Laws and Andrew Williams. It will be like Alice in Wonderland!

    John Key seems to be ‘relaxed’ about dealing with NZ First these days. Going by the TVNZ Q&A mayoral candidates debate, Williams was easily the best of the bunch. If he fails to secure the mayoralty, and does end up in Parliament with Winston and Laws, then Key will no doubt be ‘relaxed’ about that too.

    Tom Gould notes:

    John Key seems to be ‘relaxed’ about dealing with NZ First these days.

    And Phil Goff has specifically ruled them in; in considering scenarios post the next election he was quite willing to discuss a Labour government propped up by the Maori Party and NZF. That’s despite the bruises and scratches incurred by Labour’s brand last time they engaged in a bit of political coitus. Seems Goff is willing to endure the abuse as long as Winnie brings home the votes.

    If indeed Key doesn’t renew his pledge not to deal with NZF (and I note he’s very quiet on the subject while they’re hovering on 4.5%… I smell expediency) then that means neither major party deserves a vote at the next election, since they’ll have made it clear there’s no price they’re unwilling to pay for power.

    I suspect ACT and the Greens must be rubbing their hands with glee at the prospect, because it will be they who benefit from those on the right and left respectively who have some principles remaining and no place else to put their votes.

    The policital whores will sleep with anyone anywhere anytime. Prostitutes have far more principles than politicans as they have demonstrated many times

    For me they are merely expensive entertainment like the slaves getting thrown to the lions in Roman times.

    You’re absolutely right. In fact Key is already sending Lhaws flowers and candy, and starting the courtship, having “hinted it might be easier for the National Party to work with New Zealand First if Michael Laws was its leader”.

    Are there any depths to which he will not go? He managed to convince us all that he had greater integrity than Clark last time… clearly that was just another ruse.

    Key has a point Rex; can you REALLY imagine Laws supporting a Labour government?

    Did the Scampi Quota King, and his venal party pay that tax payer funded money back?

    Or are we being too sensitive?
