The Phil and Daljit show

Remember Daljit Singh?

He was the Labour candidate charged with vote rigging at the local body elections in Papatoetoe. Phil Goff should remember Daljit Singh because his predident, Andrew Little said at the time:

“The Labour Party is deeply disappointed that a candidate standing under its name is being prosecuted for alleged irregularities in enrolments for the local body elections”, Little said.

“There is no tolerance in our party for conduct that undermines the integrity of the electoral process.”

You have to wonder why then Phil Goff, Carol Beaumont, Rajen Prasad, Sunny Kaushal, Michael Wood, Ross Robertson, David Cunliffe, Su’a William Sio and other Labour candidates all attended a slap up feed and fundraiser organized by  Daljit Singh to fundraise on behalf of the Labour Party. They even posed for photos with Daljit Singh. This fundraiser was held two Friday’s ago on October 7.

You have to ask why it is that Labour’s leader risks his already poor reputation attending a fundraiser organised by a man still before the courts, poses for photographs with the same man and all for a small amount of around $10,000 which was the amount raised.

It surprises me that Phil Goff continues to associate the Labour Party and accept funds from a man currently before the courts.

    Probably setting the odds on the number of seats that labour are going to lose 26 November.
