Paula Bennett is a formidable politician who brings the tenacity of a pig hunter to her campaigning. She is a self described Westie, and out and out proud of her Westie background.
Her tart cart, flamboyant taste in clothes, tattoos and until she got married liking a bit of rough (including a few staunch red blokes) means she is the perfect candidate for the west. And there aren’t many pig hunters in Upper Harbour. So her pig hunting, tart cart driving, bogan dressing ways may make it difficult for her to win the nomination for Upper Harbour.
With the buggers muddle’s blessing though, Paula might just sneak through.
