Labour is the nasty party, Ctd

Carmel Sepuloni isn’t known as Septic Tank for no reason:

Speaking soon after being told of her tight triumph, Sepuloni said the result was a clear message of discontent at Bennett and the hard-line welfare policies she is pushing.

”I don’t think Paula Bennett has been good for Waitakere,” she said.

”At the end of the day, the voters have spoken. And despite the fact it is close, it just goes to show that there are 11 more people that think she wasn’t [good].

David Farrar points out the stark differences in behaviour between Labour and National when it comes to?victory.

Paula Bennett may well ahve the last laugh though after a judicial re-count and a possible electoral petition.

The boundaries are due for a reshuffle too after?the?census and Waitakere could well see the blue parts of Helensville put back in and then 2014 will be real interesting.
