Labour campaigning wrong in Mt Albert

Vote Melissa LeeLabour campaigners reckon the candidate is only for speeches and baby kissing, that it is party that is the more important. They are dead wrong and far be it from this blogger to tell them how to campaign but I think this strategy will back-fire.

By-elections are about personalities and about the person. Labour campaigning without a candidate shows just how desperate they are and also how foolish.

Their campaign signs have already been mocked. And I have mocked them further.

I must also point out the hypocrisy of “Putting Mt Albert First”. Helen Clark hardly put Mt Albert first when she bolted to the UN and foisted a by-election upon us all.

Putting Mt Albert First would be voting for Melissa Lee to have a voice in government rather than the wilderness of opposition.
