Four seeking Mana nomination

September 11th, 2010 at 11:18 pm by David Farrar

NZPA report:

The four candidates competing for candidacy in the by-election have been named and party president Andrew Little is predicting a close contest.

Press secretary and former television reporter , Vehicle Testing New Zealand business manager , criminal defence barrister and communications consultant have been nominated.

A close contest? Personally I’d be putting money on the guy who already has his campaign website address registered, plus who has a replacement for his current job lined up.

    We’ll see if Labour can be bothered doing anything more than organising patsy candidates.

    The selection process will be managed with the greatest integrity to produce the best outcome possible North Korea style.

    Based on names only and considering the statement from Labour NZ that the candidate will be selected on race two of those appear defeated before they start.

    If the party headquarters control half the votes and the electorate party section the other and they don’t agree then it would be close.

    Just how corrupt is left wing politics in NZ and how do the educated liberal elite manage to justify it?

    If I were still nearby I’d be tempted to help stand a strongly local, independent candidate with a track record of working for the Mana community. And I’d run the line that basically, this was their one chance to act like something other than well-trained poodles and think before exercising their vote because the candidate won’t be coming back for a second go.

    People get the representation they deserve. So I wonder, in that situation, what sort of representation Mana would feel it warranted?

    Ahh, the Labour Party isn’t corrupt as much as it is weak & saturated in gooey hubris & bent ideology – a total La-bourkkake. The current government exists because it knows the pulse of ‘the people’. The Labour Party needs to grow up, although Josie’s alright.
