When Michael Laws, who became politically ambitious at around his second trimester, announced last year he would only do one term at Mayor of Wanganui, it was puzzling.
But it all makes sense now, as it appears he is poised to do a “I wanted to retire, but the people need me” and re-stand after all.
Those who suggest this was always part of a master plan, may not be wrong. Laws has a plan for everything.
Having said that, I actually think he introduced some necessary changes to the Wanganui Council and hasn’t done too badly. The nonsense of people trying to have him censured because he was mean to them, just increased sympathy for him.
