Prebble's 'patch' hundreds of kilometres from Wellington Central
"Richard Prebble should get real and come clean about where he lives and who his neighbours are," said Labour's Manurewa Electorate campaign manager, Daniel Newman.
Richard Prebble's lame attack on Labour deputy leader Dr. Michael Cullen has backfired on the embattled Act leader.
"Richard Prebble is not listed as residing in Wellington Central. Richard and his wife Doreen are listed as residing in Titirangi Road, New Lynn. That's a hell of a long way from the residents of Wellington Central," said Daniel Newman.
As an Auckland resident, Richard Prebble has to travel hundreds of kilometres to see his constituents. If a Wellington Central residents wants to phone his or her current MP at his home, they have to make a toll call to Auckland.
"It's no wonder Act are struggling in the public opinion polls. The leader of Act is far removed from his people - literally," said Daniel Newman.
Marion Hobbs is the Labour candidate for Wellington Central. She enjoys increasing support from Wellington Central voters.
"Marion Hobbs will win Wellington Central at the forthcoming general election. Perhaps when Mr Prebble loses his constituency in November, he can consider running for a seat on the Auckland Regional Council. After all, he lives in the Auckland region," said Daniel Newman.
