Is Mallard rooted? Part II

Who is taking who for a walk?

His own dog doesn’t even like him

Arts, Travel & Lifestyle blogger David Farrar gives some very high praise to Chris Bishop.

I am not sure I can recall a more active local MP than Chris Bishop. Every week his newsletter is full of the numerous activities he is doing around the electorate ranging from lobbying the Council on parking, to setting up youth awards, promoting businesses, supporting community groups etc.

There is no one in the National party with the institutional intelligence of Farrar, or the massive array of informal contacts throughout the party. For him to say this about Bishop means a lot, and is a very clear hint that Farrar, New Zealand’s best poller and predictor, is thinking that Bishop has an exceptionally good chance of winning the seat off Mallard.

If Chris can win Hutt South he will have confirmed his already-stellar parliamentary reputation.
