The polling booths are closed.
Who will be the next MP for Hamilton East?
It will not be Gaurav Sharma. He is the classic example of why political ambition should be analysed carefully.
The next MP should be National’s Tamaka Potaka. Labour’s Georgie Dansey is really good and anyone who continues to campaign with a dislocated shoulder deserves respect.
But the chances are not good.
Potaka and National should review the rules on election day campaigning because it looks like they may have issues.
If Labour wins this then I will be really surprised.
