Labour’s smear tactics in Epsom

There is some pretty scurrilous stuff happening in Epsom, serious muck-raking and innuendo being shopped to the media, even Trevor Mallard is trying to spread it along with other flunkies like Martyn Bradbury.

It seems that Labour, bereft of any other ideas are hell bent on trying to undermine ACT as a strategy. Little do they know that ACT is quite capable of doing that all by themselves. However it is apparent that there is a concerted Labour strategy in play now to attack ACt at every opportunity. Mallard is blogging and Tweeting endlessly about it, their lap-blogs are likewise talking it up, their media proxies are busy talking about polls and all of it focussed on Epsom and ACT.

Leaderless and heading for a crash, David Parker and Labour are now having to ‘send in the youth’ to fight their desperate and nasty attacks on John Banks in an attempt to ensure the smears don’t land in their lap. Unfortunately the person they chose to push their smear leaflets is a well know Labour activist.

Levi Joule is a sneaky and furtive Young Labour activist from the telephone booth sized Princes St Labour and has been caught out delivering leaflets smearing Epsom candidate, John Banks in a desperate and pathetic manouvere by David Parker to manipulate the result in Epsom as if everyone but him is stupid. These are the leaflets that Young Labour activists are pushing frenetically into mailboxes in Epsom right now. Thankfully Levi Joule has complied with electoral Law and put his promotor statement on each of them.

Joule, is a failed student politician, who was soundly thrashed in the AUSA elections. The lickspittle also interns in Auckland Mayor Len Brown’s office and he is also heavily active in the Campaign for MMP. I wonder of Len Brown condones these leaflets attacking John Banks, or are they perhaps an un-used tactic from the mayoral campaign?

David Parker and Labour’s blatant desperation, wins Levi the James Sleep Award for Young Labour activist Stupidity – first awarded in 2008 when the namesake stood in front of a National MPs car for minutes on end and then claimed that the MP was trying to run him over.

Levi Joule can’t handle student politics, he can’t handle any politics because of his naivety and mere stupidity – shining credentials of Young Labour hackery. Worse he has now exposed Labour and David Parker to a charge of electoral muck-raking.
