    Andrew Little and Nanaia Mahuta are also having meetings at:

    2pm 1/11/14
    Manurewa RSA
    2 Maich Rd,

    4pm 1/11/14
    Backyard Bar and Restaurant
    31 Nortcote Road

    then the Glen Eden meeting at 5pm – which says to me they know nothing about Auckland traffic.

    • Karen, all three of those appointments are already in the post, and the Northcote meeting is on Sunday.

      • Karen 1.1.1

        They weren’t included when I posted my times – and the email I got said Saturday at 4pm at Northcote. So who is right?

        Sunday makes more sense, in which case the Little/Mahuta email I got was wrong

          This from Andrew Little on facebook:

          There are three events in Auckland this weekend! Unfortunately an email went out with the wrong day for one of them, so here’s the details:
          West Auckland: Meet Nanaia and Andrew, 5pm to 7pm at Ghazal Restaurant (9/5 Captain Scott Road, Glen Eden)
          South Auckland: Meet Nanaia and Andrew, 2pm at Manurewa RSA (2-8 Maich Road)
          North Shore: Meet Andrew, 4pm at the Backyard Bar (31 Northcote Road)

        • Karen, I wrote this post. They were in the post. It hasn’t been edited.

          • Karen

            I don’t want to get into a “i said she said” argument, but they were definitely not there when I wrote that post. I wouldn’t have bothered otherwise.

            I resent the implication that I am an illiterate idiot.

            • Stephanie Rodgers

              There is no implication, Karen, there’s a simple fact that those events were in the post when I wrote it. They were written slightly differently which may be why you didn’t realise this. I resent the implication that I’m a liar. So there we have it.

  2. Jenny Kirk 2

    Karen – they will helicopter across from Northcote to Glen Eden …. its the only way they’ll get to the latter meeting in time !

  3. BM 3

    When does this finish?, it’s worse than MKR.

    • Clemgeopin 3.1

      If you have nothing nice or worthwhile to say, just shut up, BM. You are as bad as
      Michael Basset with his constant worthless stupid whinings against Labour.

  4. Clean_power 4

    It’s time this long and protracted process comes to an end. Having said that, I firmly believe Grant Robertson will be the next Labour Party Leader.

  5. lprent 5

    Out at Manurewa listening to Nanaia Mahuta. Good speaker.

    Andrew Little on a bit later.

    Then off to a wedding in Matakana.

    • lprent 5.1

      Little on the subject of single issue anti-voters.

    • lprent 5.2

      About 20-25 people here.. Shows the diversity of this area of the electorates.

      Very much a question and answer session.

    • lprent 5.3

      Nanaia really pointing out that you have build a team in caucus. Probably get worse internally before it gets better.

      Andrew on the same page. But especially about finding (as an MP) about things that are happening from the media.

  6. Karen 6

    I went to the Northcote meeting to hear Andrew Little, along with 25-30 other people. He did his spiel then answered questions. Some of the things he wants are much better strategic planning, a caucus that works together, a few strong policies that are pushed and explained well before the election, faster communication with media when issues arise, a three year campaign (for which he gave credit to Grant Robertson), a much better communications strategy for the election re advertising, billboards, leaflets etc.

    On the deputy he said he would need to talk to all caucus members and gauge their preference as it was important to engage with those who didn’t vote for him. He would also consider things he thought were important.

    Overall, I was impressed by his openess about what went wrong, and the way he listened to the people there.

    • lprent 6.1

      I was also impressed by Little again yesterday and also was by Mahuta for their clarity of the types of things that they see as issues and things to fix inside the party.

      I had a choice to seeing Grant Robertson again (I’m afraid that the Kings Arms event impressed me in all of the wrong ways), or Nanaia Mahuta who I hadn’t seen in a small setting. I took the latter.

      In a lot of ways it is a pity that the husting meetings in Auckland are so late. I suspect that this Labour member won’t get the list of 4 sorted out until then.
