Well it seems that our information was correct, and no matter what spin Sandra likes to put on it (HH 14 January), we believe that she was told that her pre-selection was unlikely. I am open to any reliable information regarding the back room pre-selection process to replace her - should be interesting.

Again on the rumour front, it seems that our ex Mayor - Phillippa B. may have been offered a challenging job as a PR flack with the Fonterra Shareholders Council. Good luck Phillippa - your response to defeat in what was an extremely unfair Mayoralty race was beyond reproach, and even though I did not support you in your bid for the Mayoralty, I consider that you nevertheless displayed savoir faire in the face of a litany of lies during the campaign.
