Gotta say it’s fascinating to learn what impulses kick in, when you lose an election.
This has never happened to your hard-working member for Eketahuna North, of course. It is a measure of his popularity and the voting public’s huge regard for him that he has galloped home by the proverbial country mile every time his name has been on a ballot paper.
The Labour sheila who stood against him at the last election perhaps had no expectation of winning. Hence her world did not fall apart when the inevitable happened and she was soundly defeated.
Not so in the case of the sheila at the centre of the Len Brown sex scandal.
