I helped man the ACT on Campus stand at Canterbury University yesterday.
AOC’s stand was right next to the Young Nats, who did a very good trade. Had a good chat to law lecturer, David Round, National’s candidate for Christchurch East in 2005.
Behind us was the Labour Party stand manned by new MP Lesley Soper-they were s-l-o-w.
The Workers Party (the only communist group on campus since the collapse of Christchurch’s “Socialist Worker” branch a couple of years ago) weren’t exactly inundated with enquiries either.
Also met a very interesting economics lecturer, who had studied at the prestigious pro free market Mercatos Center at George Mason University, Washington DC.
Now I’ve only met Jordan once, but was very impressed by him. A hard-core, no bullshit libertarian, a jazz lover and a clearly principled guy.
What made him do it? I’m told it was love-seduced by a Labourite, but that doesn’t ring true to me.
Tell me its all a misunderstanding Jordan-I must admit I’m confused.
If it is true Jordan-best of luck.
Hope you come back some day.
