"Covert Deals" come true

"My earlier predictions that Labour would do "covert deals" with the Greens and the Alliance have come true, almost to the day I predicted," says the MP for Banks Peninsula, David Carter.

"Earlier last month I publicly forecast Labour would announce a deal with the Greens over Coromandel by the end of the month. This was denied by Green Co-leader Rod Donald who claimed it was "news to him". It happened as predicted."

"I also forecast the Alliance would pull out of Wellington Central to help Labour within days of the Coromandel deal. It was announced today."

"Against the odds, these three parties are still trying to claim there has been no collusion."

"Labour and the Alliance are not prepared to announce their marriage publicly. They want to go on having an illicit affair, expecting the public to turn a blind eye."

"It's obvious collusion between the left has been planned for months, and Helen Clark hasn't had the integrity to front up to the voters honestly," says Mr Carter.
