Local elections

We just had local elections here (for mayor and various officals) by postal vote as usual. John Banks (the right-wing bastard who wanted to spend all our money on yet another packed-solid motorway instead of addressing the causes of gridlock) lost by 20,000 votes to Dick Hubbard who's definitely the best of the bunch and a late entry. The guy runs a cereal company (which makes a variety of excellent and inventive cereals) and puts interesting newsletters with his views on life and business into the packets. He's an eccentric who flew all his workforce to Samoa for a holiday, so I'm looking forward to what he'll do.

And yes, there's a definite move to the left right across the Auckland electorate. My little votes did their bit.
