It’s the battle of the teeth
Oh for the love of Christ, the Greens have torn up the Memorandum of Understanding and are running in the Mt Albert by-election.
It’s such a stupid decision and shows the naked ambition of Julie Anne Genter to get an Auckland electorate. The lesson from Mt Roskill was that when the options are limited, the vote for change is there. In a bloody election year the voters are looking for unity, standing two high ranking MPs against each other is a recipe for friction and disunity.
This decision to run throws up in the air any real co-ordination at the 2017 election where there are number of electorates which should only have one MP stand. The lack of maturity to work together has always been the problem for Labour and the Greens and allowing this shows up what amateurs the Greens really are.
The possibility for this to cause all sorts of ructions are immense, Green activists online are about as alienating as the PSA Wellington comms team and Labour supporters won’t bite their tongue, they’ll have a go.
It’s such needless home goal and now Julie Anne Genter is running, Gareth Morgan would be a fool to not run and perhaps come through the middle.
This is why you can’t trust Labour and the Greens to win an election, personal ambition and ego politics always trump what’s best for NZ.
This will end badly just as Labour+Greens are neck and neck with National. God these people are clowns.
National will be laughing.
