Who is trying to ratf*** Nick Leggett?

Nick Leggett is regarded as a very, very capable man and someone Labour should be looking after. Instead, they are supporting Justin Lester, who is widely regarded as a bit boring and something of a drone.







Some time back the tipline was running hot saying that Michelle Boag was fundraising for Nick’s campaign. We fact-checked this and discovered two main things:

1. Nick Leggett has far too many brains to let his campaign be rooted by Michelle Boag, who is known for losing campaigns and leaving them in debt.

2. The rumours came from within the parliamentary precinct and we have a fair idea of who started them.

The Labour Party are pretty good at dirty politics, and they are up to their eyeballs in dirty politics in Wellington. Unfortunately, they are attacking one of their best up-and-comers in Labour.

If National were smart they would be helping Nick Leggett to win a relatively mundane role as mayor of Wellington. That would take him out of play for a good long time, and he is far more threat to National within Labour than as mayor.
