Some time next year, as it starts to dawn on the Nats that their potential 2014 coalition parties look like a parade of zombies, they and their pundits will start talking up the possibility of a coalition with Colin Craig’s conservatives. When they do, I look forward to reminding them of the class of politician they are getting in to bed with:
Conservative Colin not impressed with ‘gay’ John
Conservative Party leader Colin Craig thinks John Key is “too gay” for his Helensville seat and has said so in 20,000 letters to residents.
Pamphlets arrived in locals’ mailboxes this week, urging them not to back Labour MP Louisa Wall’s same-sex marriage bill. They were accompanied by a signed letter from Craig. It gave prominence to a comment from a disgruntled local: “Colin, you should stand here because John Key is too gay for Helensville.”
I’m depressed that here in 2012 any politician would “say” anything so rock solid stupid. I’m astonished that they would do so print. 20,000 times. Vote National – Conservative in 2014? Not quite a match made in heaven…
