There should be some fun in the local body elections in Waitakere and Manukau with the announcement that Willie Jackson will stand for Mayor in Manukau and John Tamihere in Waitakere.

Dick Quax will be ecstatic over the introduction of Willie Jackson to the plethora of left leaning candidates from Len Brown down. That should nicely split the vote and let Dick pick up the Mayoralty from a disappointed Len Brown.
