The wheels on the bus go round and round…

A reader emails:

Hi Whale Oil.  Couldn’t resist sending you this item from today’s Taranaki Daily News.

Labour’s Big Red Bus arrived in New Plymouth yesterday with 6 supporters (yes, six of them) on board.  Amusingly, two of them are “veteran campaigners” from Australia!

Are they really that desperate?

It certainly appears so…


Pretty tragic that they can only muster 6 people and two of them are ring ins.

Labour’s campaign really is in disarray.

The rule for buses like this is to fill them up with hard core supporters, in Botany the other day there would have been 30 or so with the bus.

Andrew Little would have been advised of the arrival of the bus and should have coordinated all his union pals to be wearing red and having a sing along on eh bus for the cameras. His failure to do so tells me his campaign is stuffed.

If Labour can’t muster more than 4 people in New Plymouth then Andrew Little is destined to remain a scum list MP…though on current polling he may be slinking back to the EPMU sooner rather than later.
