The HoS reports:
Conservative Party leader Colin Craig thinks John Key is “too gay” for his Helensville seat and has said so in 20,000 letters to residents.
Pamphlets arrived in locals’ mailboxes this week, urging them not to back Labour MP Louisa Wall’s same-sex marriage bill. They were accompanied by a signed letter from Craig. It gave prominence to a comment from a disgruntled local: “Colin, you should stand here because John Key is too gay for Helensville.”
What sort of political moron would actually use a quote like that in a pamphlet they authorise?
“There are people out there who simply don’t like to see their Prime Minister doing things like dancing on stage with transvestites, as he has done in the past,” he said.
The crime is the dancing, not the company he dances with
I note that in Helensville John Key got 26,011 votes and the 2nd placed candidate got 4,945. The Conservative candidate got 945.
