Barnett sooks out of Mayoral race

I see the claw of Clark in Tim Barnett’s decision to quit the Christchurch mayoralty race. Of course I am expecting Labour lickspittle tony Milne to publish a gushing reason why any time soon.

The real reason is probably the lack of polling support for Labour in general the impending by-election if he did win the mayoralty and the general parlous state of Labour’s internal polling in Christchurch. The claw of Clark would have touched him gently on the shoulder and she would ahve croaked in his ear "Timmy, Dahhhhling, the augurs say stand down"
