We blogged earlier in the week about the Greens Hamilton West candidate Max Dillon Coyle, and an unfortunate "misunderstanding" between him and the Waikato Times.
Actions have consequences, and we understand that the Greens no longer have a Hamilton West candidate. Whether the de-selection was self-inflicted or external is not yet clear.
This has embarrassed the Greens more than somewhat; they are after all the only principled party in Parliament now that NZ First is no longer there! But telling porkies to the press is telling porkies, regardless of the hue of the party that does it.
