Kris Faafoi too late with the excuses, Auckland Pacific Labour ranks Robbo last

Yesterday I wrote about Kris Faafoi trying to mitigate the undocumented no poofters rule in Labour.

Well it hasn’t worked.

Auckland Pacific Labour has ranked Grant Robertson dead last.

The Auckland Pacific Sector of the New Zealand Labour Party met last night to discuss and rank the Labour leadership candidates. After much debate and discussion it was carried by a unanimous vote that the leadership candidates be ranked in the following order:

#1 – Nanaia MAHUTA
#2 – Andrew LITTLE
#3 – David PARKER
#4 – Grant ROBERTSON

This was not unexpected. Though ranking Nanaia Mahuta first is ridiculous.

Faafoi’s efforts were an abject failure, mainly because Kris Faafoi might look like a Pacific Islander, and have the name of a Pacific Islander, but is actually a beltway apparatchik and speaks down to the real Pacific Islanders who live in South Auckland.

Those Labour supporters in Auckland actually listen to Su’a William Sio who looks and speaks like they do, right down to wearing a track suit most weekends and hasn’t done a runner on his missus for a white beltway sheila.

Once again the politicians show they aren’t listening to their grassroots.
