Suddenly Labour is pretending it cares about Epsom.


For a number of reasons Epsom will get significant media attention this election.

And this is the cynical reason why Labour’s going with David ‘the Dunedin carpet-bagger’ Parker as a candidate. Of courser on a personal note for David it’s a whole lot easier with two girlfriends in Auckland to be based there. i’m starting to think that Parker should be called Mangrove now.

For Labour, it’s got absolutely nothing to do with representing the people of Epsom.  It’s about grandstanding in the media.

Grant, if Labour’s so deeply committed to its electorates, why isn’t the penis lolly boy from the Botany by-election running there again in November after he told them he cared so much about them?

  • Is this just smoothing the way for Parker to take over Roskill when Phil resigns after the November carnage? Michael PL Wood might just have to take one for the team.
