The decision looks likely to be stripped out of the local’s hands by the nasty faction. Paul Tolich’s new coffee machine has been purchased and he is working overtime on behalf of Shane together with the nasty faction led by Carol Beaumont and Sue Moroney. Emails are being sent supporting Shane by Deb Mahuta-Coyle on behalf of Shane Taurima.
Unfortunately for the Nasty Faction they don’t seem to understand the party rules. Sources inside the faction are telling me that they are frantically trying to sign up members at this very late stage, although new members will have no say in the decision. The sources are in disbelieve that Paul, Sue and Carol can be so inept, and through their immoral tactics and skulduggery they are putting the chances of a good man at jeopardy.
Shane Taurima is known to be honest and reasonable, but is ruining his reputation by working with inept, nasty party fixers. He should take a big step back, look at those who are supporting him, and wonder whether it is the Maori way to screw over two very good people in Meka and Henare. Selections should be fair and honest, not nasty and unethical.
Parekura Horomia was a man whose integrity and decency was recognised by all sides of the political spectrum. He would be disgusted with the lack of mana shown by the nasty faction trying to stitch up the selection in his old constituency.
Advice to Tim and Moira, if you want selection to be an absolute shambles get Carol Beaumont involved. Everyone knows Carol is useless and got kicked out of the union movement and into parliament because even unions can’t have useless people working for them.
