Michelle Lewis, a Waikanae mayoral and district-wide candidate who Geoffrey interviewed last week has drawn our attention to this vilification by a fellow candidate, a Michael P. Moore, a resident of Te Horo Beach and a Labour Party fanatic (no surprise).

Apart from Mr Moore’s bizarre claims, his rabid attack on someone like this simply because that person takes a different view on a national issue to his is detestable and says he is intolerant, pig headed, belligerent and a bully.

In addition, we wonder how many parents of young boys are going to see these details below in Mr Moore’s published council statement as a red flag? We’d be very interested in what people know — contact us in confidence.
