We all know what poor losers looks like, we also know what poor winners look like too.

Fortunately for us we can also know what graciousness is victory looks like:

Celebrating at home last night Ms Bennett said she was feeling delighted but she had some sympathy for her opponent.

“Actually I know what a loss feels like because that’s what I felt last Saturday so I actually feel some sympathy for her because it hurts.”

Paula Bennett has shown Carmel Sepuloni and the other nasties of the Labour party a small lesson that they would do well to learn from. That being gracious and humble in victory goes along, long way with the?voting public, certainly far further than nastiness.
