Hubbard fires salvo at Banks

Hubbard fires salvo at BanksAuckland mayor Dick Hubbard finally lost his cool yesterday, attacking aspirant John Banks.
In an uncharacteristic outburst, Hubbard told a public meeting: "John Banks is a silver-tongued, split-tongue, snake-oil salesman."

As I posted yesterday, Hubbard has well and truly jumped both feet into the personality politics game. You can't get much more personal than the comment above.

Sadly for him it is going to be a short lived game. Playing word games when you talk like Hubbard is always going to be a loser especially against an eloquently spoken man like Banksie.?
