Bill’s patch

An ODT look around the Clutha Southland electorate found that Bill English has worked hard for his constituents and that’s reflected in their support for him.

The reporter expressed surprise that no-one spoken to could name any other candidate but that doesn’t suprise me.

The size of the electorate and the constraints of the Electoral Finance Act make it very difficult for candidates to raise their profiles, but on top of that no-one else is really trying to win the seat.
