Mana wants two electorate deals from Labour

Internet Mana candidate Annette Sykes says Labour’s done a secret Epsom-style electorate deal with Hone Harawira.

She’s also calling on Labour to do a deal for her – in the Maori seat of Waiariki.

Labour is denying the claim however, saying all seat deals are off.

Internet Mana is an unusual political beast, but whether you think it’s a roadshow or sideshow – it’s Parliament-bound on Mr Harawira’s coattails.

His lieutenant, Ms Sykes, says Labour’s done a deal which will help ensure he wins Te Tai Tokerau.

“I think it’s already happening there,” says Ms Sykes.”It’s been informally signalled.”

The Veteran, at No Minister, says Labour’s conspicuous by its absence in Te Tai Tokerau, indicating it’s conceded the seat to sitting MP and Mana leader Hone Harawira.

David Cunliffe’s refusal to rule Internet-Mana out of a government he leads has  torpedoed Kelvin Davis’s chances of winning Te Tai Tokerau.

Whether or not there’s a formal deal, that is effectively an electoral accommodation Harawira.

Sykes can’t be blamed for asking for a deal in Waiariki too, if only because asking is getting her publicity she’d otherwise struggle for.

    More political shenanigans – phhht

    The little people who involve themselves in politics because they have nothing of real value to offer this world but are skilled in the arts of deceit have taken over the world.

    Ever more reason treat this so called election in September with the utter contempt it deserves

    The deal is done in TTT. I am travelling daily between the bay of Islands and Whangarei with numerous trips to kaikohe and Kaitaia. There are no Kelvin Davis signs. None, not one. He is conspicuous by his absence. The Labour candidates for Whangarei and Northland have plastered the region by comparison.
    Cunliffe needs to be quizzed on this.
