No way, the Waiheke incident was set up by Labour, H2 could tell you who the contact was but not the actual names of those involved. Cut outs. I wonder how good the records are on expenses paid for from the leaders fund ?

Any evidence for that?

With all due respect, it sounds like bullshit. I've seen a copy of the letter - it was either from someone a couple of cans short of a six-pack, or someone who could do an uncanny imitation of weirdness.

What was Labour's motive? It happened a good six months before the election - and had the potential to mightily piss of a fair group of voters.

"Shrug", buried deeper than a Ross Meurant arms deal by now. But check the timing out again, great news when faced with a dip in the polls, distracts the media...better timing than an SFO leak.

I guess we can all believe what we want.

The prospect of political oblivion if they were caught out, and the distance away from an election, make the likelihood it was a jack-up seem vanishingly low to me.

And in fact their polling wasn't all that bad, certainly not compared to what is it today.
