Fascinating RNZ interview in the wake of the hysterical knee jerk to a cut and paste of the Pub Politics debate this week.
Goff forgets that Corin interviewed him boasting about banning Southern & Molyneux and John turns the argument into a free speech issue.
The faux outrage and attempt to claim Tamihere is a white supremacist Nazi is probably doing Goff’s campaign more damage than any good.
It’s like the Identity Politics Left in Auckland have learnt nothing from Brexit or Trump.
On paper you have to say Goff must win this, but the fury and anger from gridlocked Aucklanders struggling to get any where on ruptured infrastructure under Goff’s incremental style has created an untapped rage that Tamihere could appeal to and pull off the greatest political upset since Tim Shadbolt won the Auckland Mayoralty.
