Repost: Bob Parker’s Lifeline

September 28, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

I saw this Bob Parker poll surge in the Christchurch Mayoral race coming in this earlier post published a day or so after the Canterbury quake:

The quake has arrived only a fortnight before ballots are sent to Christchurch voters — which is ideal for an incumbent.  He gets to bathe in the “roll up the sleeves, unite and fight” afterglow before it turns ugly when people realise the extent to which the Council is mismanaging the recovery.  His incompetence won’t come to light until well after the polls close.

Don’t change horses midstream, the saying goes, and if Parker doesn’t make that sentiment the key focus for the remainder of the campaign, then he doesn’t deserve to win.
