The headlines said: Winston staying quiet on by-election plans. The story below it began:
NZ First leader Winston Peters is keeping his cards close to his chest over whether he’ll suit up against John Banks in the Epsom by-election. . .
But if you follow the link : http://www.3news.co.nz/Winston-staying-quiet-on-by-election-plans/tabid/423/articleID/213081/Default.aspx the story has disappearred.
Someone must have realised that it’s not another by-election. John Banks is Act’s candidate for Epsom in the general election.
Even if Epsom MP Rodney Hide resigned (and there’s absolutely no indication he will), we’re it’s less than six months to the election and parliament can agree to leave the seat vacant until the country goes to the polls on November 26.
