NEWSFLASH ... LABOUR CONCEDES TE TAI TOKERAU TO HONE

So much for the hypocritical beating from Labour about National doing 'deals' in Epsom and Ohariru (leaving aside the fact that MMP is all about doing deals).   It is now clear the Cunliffe and Labour, have done exactly that and conceded Te Tai Tokerau to Hone in a deal that should let the Mana/Internet Party come in with three MPs (based on their current pollling).

What's the evidence for that?     Well, the Vet and Mrs Vet took a trip up to Kaitaia on Saturday for a meeting of the Far North Vietnam veterans.    On the way up we encountered numerous National Party signs; a sad looking half sign promoting Labour's Northand candidate; two signs from a weird mob called Focus New Zealand (whose leader believes the Reserve Bank is foreign owned ... now where have we heard that before?); a heap of signs from Hone (all replete with the Parliamentary logo), but from Kelvin Davis, the Te Tai Tokerau Labour candidate, zip zero nothing, nothing at all.

And I am told suma suma in the southern part of the electorate.

Many contributors to this blog (and others) had placed some store on Kelvin Davis (good man, wrong Party) giving Hone a decent run for his money.    That might have happened if the Maori Party had thought and acted strategically and not put up a candidate to split the anti Hone vote.    But now it's clear that Cunliffe and Labour have pulled the rug from Davis as a serious player and prostituted themselves to a bunch of hard left racists and a confused (as in multiple waka jumper) ex MP all financed by and beholden to krim.con in order to cobble together a coalition of the Centre-Left, the Left, the Green Left, the racist Left and the harder Left.  

Clearly Labour has supped long and hard from the cup of Groucho Marx when he said "The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing.   If you can fake that, you've got it made".

Vet, I have been worrying about this for a while. I am travelling across the north daily as far south as Whangarei up into Keri and across to Kaikohe. There are no Kelvin signs.
Those slimy fucks have hung him out to dry again. Cunliffe pontificating about deals makes my blood boil. They have gifted the northern maori seat to the Harawira crime family and the fat german crook.

And you made a post I was about to write redundant damn you.

Sorry BB but nice to have further confirmation that Labour has decided that Hone and the Kraut are the best things since sliced bread.

Don't you mean the best thing since takakau and sauer kraut?

You know, losers, it really would be delicious if it ended up that this made the difference and Dotcom destroys the National government, given how it fell all over itself to break its own rules to let him in in the first place. What's even funnier is they did that only because he was rich. That he was a crook didn't matter. Think they've learned anything?

To all you know it all's... don't you know how to get people thinking...the strategy behind Kelvin's signs not going up is to let everyone see the current MP soon to be ex-MP same ole same ole signs with the CREST on which would normally tell me that it is getting paid by the tax payers monies...I could be wrong but who knows...and to let everyone see for themselves who is the person that was meant to have represented them over the past 9 long and dreaded years especially when we don't get to see him up in Te Tai Tokerau......annnddd then BOOM Kelvin's signs up and ready to go this will leave a lasting impact where people will be able to be captured by Kelvin's impressive signs. WATCH THIS SPACE 53 DAYS TO GO feeling excited about the prospect of having someone representing and working for us up here in the north....OH AND THERE IS NO DEAL ON THE TABLE....WE ARE GOING OUT TO WIN THE SEAT....

EtC ... thank you for confirming that Labour and Mana/Internet are now joined at the hip in a mutual admiration society.

Guess it takes one crook to know one.

Kaye Taylor - I so fervently hope that you're right. 9And no - I am not a Labour supporter - I'm an anyone-but Hariwira supporter)

The Veteran said...

OlderChas ... aren't we all.

Kaye, keep drinking the Kool Ade. You are clearly far down the pecking order in Labour if you can offer up such fervent nonsense.
Today, right now there are no Kelvin Davies signs up in the North.
I have seen two Cunliffe signs stuck to the back of other candidates signs. One for the whangarei candidate and one for the Northland candidate.
And while we are on that topic.
Willow Jean Prime is a first term far north council councillor who breathlessly told everybody that the council position was her dream. A year later and she is standing for parliament. Will not be conned again.
Saying that she seems to have phenomenal support. Her signs outscore Mike Sabin 50-1. They are everywhere, I have seen hundreds between Towai, Paihia, Keri, Kaikohe and beyond. That is probably a reflection of the local party support for sabin who is invisible other than fleeting glances of his 100k Holden with his chubby face plastered all over it. He proves the theory that even a donkey would win Northland in a bluer coat.
Kelvin Davies has been knifed again. The clowns who run Labour are so desperate for another turn at the trough that they have gifted TTT to the Harawira crime family.

On the topic of Harawiras signs with the parliamentary crest. All the signs from springs flat to Onerahi have had the crest painted over.
