Another Clark for Labour

Selwyn College warden David Clark has been selected as Labour’s candidate for Dunedin North.

He has previously worked as a Treasury analyst and as an adviser to Labour list MP David Parker, also of Dunedin.

 Big News points out that four of the candidates who contested the seat at the last election will be in parliament after the recess:  Pete Hodgson (Labour), Michael Woodhouse (National), Metiria Turei (Greens) and Hilary Calvert (Act).

Clark has been seleted because Hodgson is retiring, Dunedin North is bright red so the new candidate’s chances of becoming the next MP are high.

 Given Act’s performance, Calvert’s seat in parliament is more precarious.

    Oh I don’t know. If Whaleoil is right, and he isn’t always, then ACT looks to have quite a secure future.

    If he is, it seems Lance Private Roy and Captain Mainwaring might be rushing off to form their own party. The Old Fart leading the Young Tart, perhaps. I suspect Messrs Hide, Boscowan and Key might suddenly ‘find God’ if the story is true.

    adam2314, where do you base your pathetic views, please take a quick look at the latest polls.
    Sometimes you are better to be silent in the face of a suggestion you are insane than speak and remove the doubt.
