Txts from New York

There is talk in Labour of ignoring their published list and side-stepping the intent of our electoral law in replacing disgraced MP Darren Hughes. They are doing this to avoid the Tizard Bomb but in doing so will play right into the ands of Anti-MMP campaigners by doing much worse than the Greens did when parachuting in Russel Norman.

What this really shows in Andrew Little’s attempt to spike not only Judith Tizard but 5 other equally useless MPs in order to anoint Louisa Wall is a shameless power grab by the union factions who were sidelined under Helen Clark who assiduously favoured personality and lifestyle factions rather than class factions. With the coup on and Andrew Little yet again on the outside of parliament unable to achieve his goal all he can do is build his numbers for after the 2014 loss.

The txts are flying:

    So is Hulun anti-Little, or just neutral?

    Is it the enemy of my enemy is my friend: i.e. she hates Goff more.

    It’s an expensive move if he does it in terms of political capital. Is it worth it. Is one more on his side really going to make any diff at all?

    Sure Tizard’s a liability, I doubt she’ll enjoy the criticism upon her return and after awhile she’ll announce her retirement. I wonder if they’ll make her Chief Whip? I hope so. They’ll need someone really strong and dynamic in that role, I think, over the coming few months. It’s going to be worse than a circus, because in a circus, those animals are trained.
