Labour really does seem to have a bit of a problem now with its discredited candidate for the Auckland Super City Mayoralty. Lyen Brown hasn't got a shit's show in hell after the events of the last few days so what is Labour's plan B?
Adolf's pick is that Judith Tizard will be persuaded to resign from the Labour list in return for getting the party's backing for a tilt at the Auckland job.
Think about it dear readers. Such a move would clear the way for Philk Off to make all the changes he needs to make to the parliamentary Labour Party. No longer would he be constrained by the 'shit if we do that we'll get Tizard back' syndrome. He could boot Carter out and put Twyford in to fight and win a Te Atutu by election. If National had half a brain it would not try too hard and let Twyford win the by election.
Fat Judy might do quite well, riding on Mummy's petticoats. One thing is for sure. She'd get more votes than Lyen Brown
Will National privatise the RMA process?
