    LOL a real lefty in the National Party not one who finished up in the wrong team though, Colin King is vastly underated by the beltway but clearly his electorate rate him with a majority north of 10 000

    Colin King was a remarkable Man when I first crossed his path in the 70s when he shore for us in Waipara.
    He Is southpaw and for the uninitiated that means a lot of extra effort to place the sheep reversed for the fixed Machine down Tube.
    When he won his first Golden Shears Open Championship he had to contend with a right hand setup, a significant handicap.
    The following year when defending his title the quick thinkers who were running the event had modified a stand for all the lefthanders thus creating a level playing field.

    This shows why Labour is irrelevant – representative democracy should mean MPs represent the people and have walked the walk whereas Labour seems to me to be misnamed given the plethora of professional politicians within its ranks for whom labour in the physical sense is something that other people do
