Stuff reports that David Benson-Pope has not been selected to be Labour candidate for Dunedin South. Good.
I blogged about his bullying behaviour in select committee, which I witnessed first hand some years ago. I don't care about allegations of being kinky, though the allegations around his behaviour as a teacher are somewhat more disconcerting. However, his involvement in the Madeleine Setchell affair is worthy of his dismissal.
He's a hypocritical little prick, and his disappearance from politics will only be good. A world where obnoxious lying bullies aren't in politics is a better place.
Though it's probably too much to hope that the people of Dunedin South will resist voting for a unionist.
