Dunne at Ratana

One of the unknowns so far this election year is what Prime Minister Bill English’s relationship will be like with Peter Dunne, and what National will do in the Ohariu electorate – support Dunne’s re-election bid, or try to take the electorate for themselves.

A shot from Ratana this year (2017) may give an indication…

…or it may simply reflect a seating arrangement that was out of the politician’s hands.

Actually Dunne was also snapped last year (2016) at Ratana with English – and with Andrew Little:

Dunne’s relationship with Labour is also of interest.

So far this year Little has attacked the Maori Party, the Mana Party and NZ First (as well as National of course) – will he also have a crack at Dunne at some stage?

Or will he just leave that to Labour’s approach to Ohariu?

    Best to Dunne alone. If the beggar gets in again despite my intended full on voodoo doll sessions in the lead up to the election, his loyalty is easy enough to buy.

      Best to leave Dunne alone.
      Damn. Now I’m grumpy again.

          You should see me when I get the power bill, the rates demands, the insurance premium renewal requests, & the 6 monthly credit card fee deduction on my statement. 😡

              And yes G, I know I’m ‘thrashing’ that track, but repetition helps us learn….

    What’s ‘Dunne is Dunne’. He is well known in his electorate, as well as nationally, which is why (I suspect) the electorate keeps voting for the ‘default mode’. When he finally decides he’s had enough, or departs this ‘mortal coil’, it will be very interesting to see which way this electorate ‘swings’…
