The troops have hit the ground in Mt Albert.
National and the Greens had the troops out and about in Mt Albert today and what a friendly lot both teams were. I think the agreement to work together in the house may be paying dividends with the troops.
The Greens had about 20-30 workers canvassing and seemed really upbeat. Russel Norman was leading from the front and looked very comfortable canvassing. They were a dignified and very energetic team
The Nats had about 60 people on the ground and by all acounts were getting a good reception even down in Tiger country around Balmoral and Morningside.
Not one single case of silliness between the canvassing teams, and by all accounts everyone was pleasant to each other, great to see.
If there were any Labour canvassers out they must have been resting their weary feet in the cafes when my spies went past.
