Michael Wood was still bleating about debates to reporters, when he was busily promoting a Botany debate on Facebook. Remember Michael has been telling anyone who would listen that Jami-lee Ross won’t front him in a debate, and yet, as he has known all along debates have been scheduled.
The reason Michael Wood is doing this, and been so defensive on this blog, is because it is now his election strategy. I actually think I might owe Jami-Lee an apology for giving his opponent what he was so desperately after – any coverage whatsoever.
You see it’s now pretty obvious that Mike’s plan is to run a campaign of distractions, disruptions, and worst of all - lies.
- First stunt was to follow John Key to a Greypower visit (outside of the electorate) then complain to the world that he didn’t talk about unemployment figures (which weren’t released until after the visit started).
- Because no-one noticed that - the second tactic was to promote stories about no one wanting to debate him – despite knowing they’re scheduled (see above).
- Third tactic was to employ an Asian MP, Raymond Huo, to make shit up.
So, why is this happening?
Because Mike’s been left to his own devices.
Andrew Little pulled the plug weeks ago, and then, astonishingly – Trevor Mallard revealed what the caring left really thinks about the people of Botany:
“I wouldn’t spend much…my gut reaction would be to treat it like Tauranga and forget it.”
Worse still, that gets confirmed by the Greens who can’t even be organised enough to turn up.
But surely – the grand-daddy of them all has to be the “I can’t win”, so don’t worry Mt Roskill, you’re the place I call home - gaffe. When Melissa Lee capitulated like that the paid lap-bloggers at The Standard labelled the silly statement a major gaffe and played it up for weeks on end. Strangely they are silent of Michael Wood throwing in the towel so early in Botany. Instead they join in the “make shit up” tactics and repeat Michael Wood’s lies about debates.
Michael, it’s good to see that after all the elections you’ve lost as a professional Labour candidate and the years you’ve spent as a union lackey - you HAVE learned a few tricks.
One trick you haven’t learned Michael, is that when I call someone a liar I am on very firm ground. I was told by Clare Curran to put up, I was asked by you to prove my assertions that both you and Raymond Huo were liars and I have done that, with photos, and with screenshots from Facebook. The funny thing about all of this is that I got banned from Red Alert for telling the truth. The simple plain truth is that Labour’s candidate is all alone, no support, no strategy and has to resort to making shit up, flinging shit or just being annoying. One thing for certain is he isn’t serious about even trying because “Mt Roskill, you’re the he calls home”.
