Labour nasties took a pasting

Todd McClay, Sam Lotu Iiga and Tim MacIndoe all won on Saturday, with increased majorities.

Unsurprisingly they were also standing against some Labour nasties. Steve Chadwick, Carol Beaumont and Sue Moroney. Only Sue Moroney remains in parliament after the blood bath of November 26.

Another Labour nasty who is now unemployed was Carmel Sepuloni. She took the fight in Waitakere to Paula Bennett but Paula showed a great deal of mongrel and proved more adept at wrestling with pigs than the Septic Tank.

There is a moral in this story. If you want to be nasty, spiteful and awful then you will lose to candidates who are likeable and real. Having a sneering smack bum face all the time doesn’t endear you to voters.
