Focussing on things that matter, Ctd

The lame campaign manager of Labour, Trevor Mallard, has hit upon yet another Underpants Stealing plan for the election campaign.

After teh Supreme Court ruling regarding his defamation of Erin Leigh you would have though he would keep on the down-lo this week.

But no, he is now attacking and defaming Bryce Edwards of Otago University. Not only that he also attacks Matthew Hooton, David Farrar and the PSA!

The attack on David is equally as defamatory as the attack on Bryce Edwards.

Trevor Mallard is a coward and a bully. If this is an example of what Labour can promise us then it is no wonder that they are at 25% in the polls. His continuing smears and attacks are likely to assist Labour sinking further and the Greens becoming the official opposition party of standing after the election.

I don’t agree with Bryce Edwards’ politics, but I believe he does a useful service with the Daily Politics summary. My view is that it is usually too heavily focused on the shouters of the elft, but apparently that isn’t left enough for Trevor Mallard and so he must have his integrity attacked. I have found all my communications with Bryce Edwards to be professional, courteous and above politics, he has always acted like a true academic professional towards me. Trevor Mallard’s attacks are appalling.

This is classic shoot the messenger stuff from labour. Just yesterday we had Clare Curran and Chris Trotter calling fro massive regulation of the media, and now we have Trevor Mallard trying to silence an academic.

    This is good.
    This is Labour doing what Labour do well….. ATTACK.
    And has it worked for them over the last 3 years?
    Not at fucking all.
    So keep it up I say again, attack, attack, attack.

    Mallard really is a nasty little fuck.

    Well Trevor; you’d know all about running a business wouldn’t you. Haven’t you learnt yet that the voting public is so over all the smears and innuendo? They’re sooooo 1999-2008.

    That lasted just 10 minutes before Trevor deleted it, with this note:

    Use your own blog not ours. Trevor

    So I have! I now understand what WO means about Mallard’s “stealing underpants” strategy!!

    It’s called bullying Trevor, and Kiwis have had enough of cowards like you. Time to fly off into the sunset bullyboy,

    Sounds like Trevor Mallard is burning his bridges early. Probably doesn’t even realise he’s doing it.
