NZPA has some details of the Liarbour Party List.
Rejuvenation includes adding the 62-year-old former Race Race Relations Commissioner Rajen Prasad on board.
I'll add more when I can.
But NZPA need to know Sir Ronnie Flanagan is not and has never been Home Secretary in Britain, but is one of Britain's top cops.
I do hope candidate Jacinda Ardern has not been embelleshing her CV.
Anyway, seems like the usual ragbag of public sector 'workers', unionists and the odd lawyer to me.
Still the same old Liarbour Party!
But Jacinda looks too pretty to be a socialist :)
UPDATE: Martin Kay of Stuff offers more detail, but still makes the same mistake about the UK Home Secretary.
That is Jacqui Smith, NOT, I repeat, Sir Ronnie Flanagan.
UPDATE2: Full list here, which Mike Williams describes as 'talented'. Notable entries include Judith Tizard at 38 (will she survive if National take Auckland Central?), and Jordan Carter at 71.
I see the official Liarbour release makes the error about Jacinda Ardern working for the UK Home Secretary 'Sir Ronnie Flanagan.'
Are Liarbour so dumb to make foolish errors like this? But obviously the media must be equally dumb for not picking it up!
UPDATE3: The Hive offers its analysys of which MPs will stay and go. Darien Fenton and Judith Tizard are on the endangered list.
UPDATE 4: David Farrar offers his analysis here and notes other Liarbour blunders here.
