Recent Mana Party member Matt McCarten is now Labour’s chief of staff – what will that mean for Mana?
Will Labour court its leader, and sole MP, Hone Harawira and invite him to join them?
Will it go after his seat?
Of will they be happy to leave him to the electorate they believe is theirs to give them another coalition partner?
The first and third options won’t appeal to the lighter pink people towards the centre who are already being scared to the centre right by the prospect of a Labour-Green government.
