Checked out Clubs Day at Canterbury University today.
The boys signed up 40 odd members and did some preliminary coalition negotiations with some of the other parties on hand.
I had had some good talks to some of the new members. They’re a diverse bunch, ranging from a very switched on Ayn Rand fan from Australia to a couple of very well informed guys from the Christian Union-one was a long time New Zeal reader.
Also had a good talk to Marc Alexander from the Nats-(ex United future MP). He’s standing against Jim Anderton in Wigram and is hoping that favourable boundary changes and the swing against the left will give him a fighting chance.
My only disappointment was missing my mate Byron from the Workers Party. I went over to say hello, but he’d buggered off.
