Not even the Greens want her

Polling by Len Brown and his Labour paid flunkies must have been really bad when adding Sue Bradford into the mix. She has thrown her toys out of the cot today after disclosing that no-one want to play with Sue.

Sue Bradford ejectedFormer Green Party MP Sue Bradford has abandoned plans to run for the Auckland super-city council, saying she has been left high and dry by her party.

The Green Party is gathering in Christchurch today for its annual conference. Ms Bradford will miss it for the first time in 12 years.

“I don’t have a role there,” Ms Bradford said. I’ve lost my place to stand with the Green Party.”

She had seriously considered running for a place as a councillor on the super-city board but had reluctantly backed out.

“I came to see that I didn’t have the support of Labour and the Greens.”

An independent campaign would have been costly and she did not want to split the Left-wing vote.

Asked if she was disappointed by the lack of support, Ms Bradford said: “I’m just being realistic really.”

Len Brown’s campaign team must have worked overtime to spike Bradford. Perhaps it was the looming possibility of billboards announcing that Sue Bradford would be just a heartbeat away from the Mayoralty of Auckland if Len Brown was elected.

Sue Bradford needs to realise that she is as hated as Helen Clark and should just quietly disappear.
