By-election By-Blow

As predicted it was a cakewalk for Tariana ... or as Paul Holmes describes her; "a confused tub of lard".

You can see the official result here. No-one got within cooee of her, not even the inestimable Peter Wakeman. Further reinforcement to the argument that the whole thing was a complete joke is that none of the other candidates even managed to get 200 votes.

And before I go ... a copy of the Christchurch City Council's submission on the Foreshore and Seabed Bill has been leaked. For a lefty Labour dominated authority they're pretty scathing and have effectively rubbished the Government's position. I'll post more details tomorrow once the Mayor, and other city officials, are prepared to talk. It seems they haven't seen the final draft of their own submission yet!
