As we all know, Labour and the Unions mobilise South Auckland voters on election day with the additional enticement of a decent KFC feed.
This infallible method has seen impressive results, with the affected electorates privately dubbed “KFC Central” and ”KFC East”.
National has been powerless to anything about it.
The Civilian reports
Labour Leader David Shearer has today revealed that, for a two year period between July 2009 and November 2011, he engaged in a romantic affair with a young office worker at his Mt. Albert electorate office in Auckland. Shearer claims that he “only just remembered” the affair and that up until now he had “completely forgotten it.”
The Leader of the Opposition told his wife and children of the affair last night, before calling a press conference outside his office this morning to explain it to the media.
“So I was sitting at home with Anuschka last night” said Shearer, referring to his wife of more than two decades. “We were watching old DVDs of Desperate Housewives, and there was some sort of dirty hanky panky going on between one of the wives and this younger man who wasn’t her husband. And I turned to Anuschka and I said ‘Oh yeah, I did that once.’”
“She was pretty upset” said Shearer. “But look, as I’ve told you, I’d completely forgotten. I meant to tell her earlier, but it must’ve just slipped my mind.”
