Colin Craig is really going for gold in insulting the Prime Minister, posting out 20,000 leaflets calling John Key too gay for Helensville:
Conservative Party leader Colin Craig thinks John Key is “too gay” for his Helensville seat and has said so in 20,000 letters to residents.
Pamphlets arrived in locals’ mailboxes this week, urging them not to back Labour MP Louisa Wall’s same-sex marriage bill. They were accompanied by a signed letter from Craig. It gave prominence to a comment from a disgruntled local: “Colin, you should stand here because John Key is too gay for Helensville.”
Craig says people have expressed disgust that their local MP was supporting the bill without asking their views.
“MPs have a duty to represent their electorate but John Key has chosen to ignore the views of the people of Helensville and carry on regardless.
“I was in the town a few weeks ago and was surprised at how many people were annoyed that he is not listening to them.
“There are people out there who simply don’t like to see their Prime Minister doing things like dancing on stage with transvestites, as he has done in the past,” he said.
Bizarre behaviour. John Key says about 3 people have contacted his office about the issue of Marriage equality…Hardly a groundswell.
in other matters Colin Craig’s Facebook page is incorrectly authorised. (29 Gillies Ave, yet he abandoned Epsom around 6 months ago), and the Conservative party office has been empty since.
His website STILL lacks an authorisation as well – which means a wilful kind of negligence given I raised this some time ago.
