Labour in la-la land

Labour must have been chewing on some of that Mana 1080 poison because they have gone all addled in their thinking. Here are some quotes about their disastrous win on the weekend.

Andrew Little, with a “nice try” Mo-vember moustache said this inanity;

“In the circumstances we think that was a bloody good result … it was above the level we had expected.”

WTF! In what circumstances? Labour ran around campaigning on Kris Fa’afoi rememering the opening of the Porirua McDonalds from his pram in Christchurch and removing GST from fruit and vegetables and the people of Mana slashed their majority to that of a toxic poison.

Labour Party president Andrew Little said the result was “not necessarily a swing to National”

What drugs is he on? Whatever they are I want some.

Andrew Little also has a direct swipe at Phil Goff;

He believed the low turnout and reduced majority was at least partly because of Labour voters staying at home because they were unhappy with Mr Faafoi’s selection.

“I don’t know how deep it was, but it was a constant thing that came up.”

During the campaign Mr Faafoi faced criticism that he was a “carpetbagger” as he did not live in the electorate and his ties with the community were not as strong as he claimed.

If that isn’t a challenge to Phil Goff I don’t know what is. The left wing is desperately spinning Mana in a bid to save the doomed leadership of Phil Goff and the utter irrelevance of the Labour Party.
