Maggie Barry attended event to for aspiring Rodney candidates to get their nominations signed. Two days later when nominations closed she did not submit her nomination.
Maybe her due diligence told her that New Zealand’s favourite grand-mother was not going to get through a rigged selection.
Sources close to Maggie are telling this blog that the whole event was rigged. Former South African Politician and Boer, Cehill Pienaar, apparently recused him self form the process, where it was taken over by Brent Robinson in what
can only have been a premediated move designed to intimidate the other candidates. Brent then suggested everyone should speak, without warning the other candidates first who were not expecting to have to speak. Obviously Brent had prepared and used this as a chance to intimidate the other candidates.
The party should wonder why someone as talented and with such a profile as Maggie Barry did not even go through the selection process. And as the tip line has been running hot since last nights post there are more stories of Brent and his fundamentalists friends attempts to take over the Rodney seat.
