"It would take an earthquake for me to lose" - Jim Anderton quote is a LIE
Ouch. Could one earthquake really clear Bob Parker of his crappy job to date and re-elect him as Mayor? Bob can look strong in the immediacy of the moment, but it will depend on the post quake recovery to see if he can turn this into a defining moment.
UPDATE: I take this back - Fucking whaleoil - turns out the quote was taken out of context and is a total lie!. Anderton was referring to the reason he left Labour, it wasn't him winning the Christchurch election, the sleazy edit makes Anderton out to have said it.
