A Potential Constituent!

Eeh gads, someone has noticed the campaign.

Yes, the 0800 number was activated for the first time today. An elderly bloke who has been fruitlessly battling council to get his flooding driveway fixed received my leaflet over the weekend, and having pursued all other options, was desperate enough to give me a call!

So the first act as local candidate will be helping to sort out a drainage problem.

I actually find dealing with these sorts of things quite rewarding - it's often basic ground level problems like this that have the biggest effect on people, so I'm very happy to help in any small way I can. My digital camera and I have an appointment with the leaky driveway this Saturday.

Some balding bloke gave a speech tonight as well. Will have to have a look at that soon...

You're making fun of a man who is losing his hair? I thought Labour was a PC party that makes extreme efforts not to offend. What's next? You heard there was a speech being made by a spastic hori?

Don't forget the disabled transgender Pasifika fono that's on next week!!!

Anyway, who's to say that there's anything wrong with being balding? I've heard that some women actually find it quite attractive...

as a major Jean Luc fan I have to concur. besides isn't it what's on the inside that counts?

Yes, and next week a speech will be delivered by a woman with deformed teeth, a penchant for forgery and speeding, and the face of an exhumed corpse. Yikes!
