Unusual billboard when you consider Labour and it's blog mouthpiece are doing anything but putting Mt Albert first.
Is forcing Twyford to stand aside putting Mt Albert first? Is trying to squash Meg Bates candidacy putting Mt Albert first? Is flying in a carpet bagger, a failed candidate from previous elections, a man who is rumoured to be from the Roger Douglas end of the old Labour party, a man whose sole qualification seems to be being an old school buddy of Goff putting Mt Albert first? I don't think so. Putting aside the fact that labour and it's blog mouthpiece have developed a testicular torsion brought on by the Machiavellian manipulations of Blofeld and Darth Blogger they really have shown themselves up for the command and control clowns that they are. Using senior labour staffers to run the on the ground campaign while still blogging "anonymously" at the Standard is a plan doomed to fail. Labour will win the by-election, but at what long term cost to their credibility and Leader?
The Clark faction led by the Tizard trough feeding dynasty and the Edwards family is pushing hard for Bates while the parliamentary leader is pushing for his school chum. This will end in tears.
