Mana selections

September 16th, 2011 at 10:00 am by David Farrar

Danya Levy at Stuff reports:

Former Greens MP today confirmed she will stand for the Party in the Auckland electorate of against Social Development Minister and sitting National MP Paula Bennett.

That is great news for Paula, as Bradford will split the left vote with Carmel Sepuloni.

Meanwhile, Maori broadcaster has decided not to stand for Mana in Tamaki Makaurau against Maori Party co-leader Pita Sharples.

And that is good news for Sharples. I think the risk of him losing was much greater if Jackson stood as Jackson would be competing with Sharples for votes.

He was also concerned he would split the vote in Tamaki Makaurau and enable Labour candidate Shane Jones to win the Maori seat.

And Willie knows Shane is the most right wing Maori MP in Parliament (after Jami-Lee Ross).

    Jamie-Lee who?

    Oh yes, the much trumpeted kid who has no idea what life is about yet.

    He seems to have his nose well and truly in the trough.

    Return of the crazy cat lady.

    The Mana party is a collection of the sick lame and lazy hasbeen hippie no hopers and professional bitchers. Hell even the green party tossed Bradford.

    The zombie socialists that wouldn’t die. I am so going to enjoy this election.

    Sue Bradford will be the perfect representative for the racist pigs of the Mana Party.

    National must be pretty worried that Bennett will lose this seat if they see Bradford as their saviour.

    Shane Jones is more right wing than Simon Bridges?

    [DPF: Quite possibly. Simon is a bit moist at times :-)]

    The only thing “right” about Mr Jones is his overuse of his right hand whilst watching grubby movies.

    V2,

    It’s all relative, innit? I mean, Shane Jones was the bloke DPF et al were hopping up and down about a couple of years ago for wanting to impose water flow restrictions on showers (http://www.kiwiblog.co.nz/2008/10/government_fucking_up_our_showers.html) … isn’t that more “socialist control freak” than anything Bridges has done?

    “Jackson also said his staff of up to 100 at the Authority had asked him not to stand because they didn’t want to lose him”

    What a joke. He spends much of his day yapping with his mate Tamihere on the radio anyway – for masochists only.

    Someone who doesn’t appear to know how to raise children trying to raise enough votes to piggy-back into the public-funded trough.

    At least that’s how I see it.
