Seriously?


Nope, not the first of April

 

Former National MP Aaron Gilmore is hinting at a return to politics in the Christchurch East seat to be left vacant by Lianne Dalziel’s bid for the mayoralty.

On his blog ”Mighty Rocket” Gilmore, who stood unsuccessfully in the seat in 2008 and 2011, said many locals had asked what he was going to do.

”The answer to that is simple. The by-election is not likely till after Show Week. So good things come to those who wait,” he said.

After being ”hounded out of public office” he had ”learnt to hold my cards very closely. Bottomline, I do not want to see Labour hold onto the seat as I do not think that is the best thing for the people”.

Asked about his interest in the seat, Gilmore, who quit Parliament after allegations around a boozy night out in Hanmer Springs, yesterday said: ”I do not want to talk about it any further at the moment.”

Not sure hounded out of public office is very fair

I am interested to see who National selects. I was at candidates college with one ChCh member who I would think would be great for ChCh’s development, but will see! Will they take an external from Canberra 😉
