Lee lets cat out of bag

Melissa Lee's suggestion (1) that the Waterview Connection would divert criminals away from her (potential) electorate was stupid. Not because it was racist or unthinking, but because it was honest.

Lee revealed the truth behind National's attitude towards crime - don't deal with it, just divert it. Make it someone else's problem. Keep it out of areas that vote National, keep it in areas that support Labour. Perhaps a wall around the Occupied Territories South Auckland will be her next proposal.

With that sort of frank attitude, she won't last five minutes in Parliament.
