TVNZ really is becoming the candidate kindy for the Labour party.
There was Brian Edwards, Chris Laidlaw who once used to comment on rugby games, one failed to become an MP despite trying and other failed as an MP and went on to embed himself at Red Radio.
Then we had Kris Fa’afoi, who went from TVNZ gallery team to the leader’s office and then became an MP.
Shane Taurima wanted to be an MP, failed in one selection, was preparing for another selection battle and ran branch meetings and fundraising committees from TVNZ offices.
And yesterday Tamati Coffey pushing himself forward as potential candidate in Rotorua.
Now we have TVNZ using another Labour candidate on television.
