CUNLIFFE'S OFFICE DOES NOT EMBRACE `MAN BAN''!!! - EXCEPT FOR DELIVERY OF FLYERS

A local (Hastings) Labour party member on HER push bike went down our street a while ago putting flyers into all letter boxes. The flyers advocated. `Send A Message - Vote NO to Asset Sales. Reply address is to the Leader Of The Opposition. Although we have two registered voters at our address we received only one flyer addressed to - wait for it - Mr pdm, nothing for Mrs pdm. Our neighbours are away for the weekend and we are collecting their mail - they too received only one flyer addressed to Mr. Neighbour. So Cunliffe's office is happy to use ladies to deliver his flyers but will not address them to female voters. Then I realised why that is happening - all of the male members of the Hastings Branch of the Labour party have resigned in protest at the `manban' - could it be?? By the way both Mrs pdm and I voted Yes. UPDATE Lindsay Mitchell has an excellent take on this same matter: http://www.lindsaymitchell.blogspot.co.nz/2013/12/who-is-labour-targetting.html

Interesting.

Mrs Exocet received one the other day, but I did not, of course Mrs Exocet did the right thing and introduced it to the recycle bin.
