David Farrar on Kiwi Blog sums up Labour’s woes going into their annual conference, in Rotorua, this weekend.
It’s not the ideal backdrop to Labour’s Conference.
First you have to pay back $800,000 or so of taxpayers funds.
Secondly a poll shows you 13% behind.
Thirdly you lose a local body by-election in the safest Labour territory in the country.
Fourthly on the day the conference starts, Police raid one of your MPs offices, in a historic first for NZ.
And finally fifthly in Auckland the centre-right win four out of five seats on the Auckland Electricity Consumers Trust, despite there being a split on the centre-right!
