Herald says Tizard will be back

Not an April Fools joke, but it seems $162,000 in return for knitting in the chamber for a few months, is going to be too hard to resist. The Herald reports:

Former Labour Party minister is widely expected to announce tomorrow she will take the seat in Parliament left vacant by Darren Hughes. …

Ms Tizard is next in line on the party’s list and is expected to announce her decision on TVNZ’s Q+A tomorrow morning.

Sources said they understood she was leaning towards taking the seat despite Labour Party president Andrew Little’s clear preference for Louisa Wall, the former list MP who is standing in the safe seat of Manurewa.

If this is true, Phil Goff will be a very unhappy camper, and John Key a happy camper.
