I just spent a bit of the morning handing out leaflets in Kilbirnie where I met a man who proved the maxim that all publicity is indeed good publicity. It turns out he is probably voting Green for two reasons.
The first is he saw a new story about political party leaders’ pets. John Key had a cat and so on and so on. But Jeanette Fitzsimons had a cow. And he thought that was fairly impressive.
The second was that he had heard that Jeanette Fitzsimons had slept with Tim Shadbolt, and she was a good looking woman. Then and now.
I thanked him for his vote.
