A Negative Campaign against Phil Goff?

The left wing are anointing Phil Goff as the new messiah and the man who will win the Auckland Mayoralty. This is despite his inability to raise funds.

They are also overlooking Goff having had a long track record in parliament, a track record that includes mistakes and lies that really do not bear much scrutiny.  

An aggressive third party campaign run via a big media company highlighting Goff’s inability to tell the truth will be very destructive to his chances.

Mayoral elections are much more about the individual than the ticket. If the individual comes severely damaged, and there is an aggressive campaign to tell the truth about the individual they find it very hard to convince people they are honest and competent.

Phil Goff’s repeated lies would make a very interesting campaign video, and his flip flopping will make him look incompetent.

Any good campaigner knows this, and has a large body of favourite negative ads filed away for future use. It might be his silly dyed hair and his comments around that. It might be his lying about what the SIS told him. There is so much more that could be used against him, making him look like an unethical, incompetent liar.

If Goff can’t raise the money to run a campaign to defend these attacks he will be nailed.

If he keeps his head in the sand and ignores them he will be nailed.
