Libz campaigning in the face of communists..
Submitted by Elijah on Tue, 2008-08-19 23:46
I have just gotten home from a most unpleasant experience whilst out campaigning.
This morning I was riding the three bus routes which cover the Tamaki electorate, intending to shake hands, introduce myself and give leaflets to people on the way to work (and in a 'captive' situation ha ha!).
I have done it several times already and usually can easily cover all three routes within an hour and a half without too many problems, and the feedback reasonably positive.
So having just gotten on the bus in St Heliers...full of passengers...and heading along Tamaki Drive to Britomart shaking hands with a "I am Elijah the Libertarian party candidate, how do you do? here is a leaflet [Sir/Madam]"...when the idiot driver screeches to a halt (in rush hour) and starts berating me for electioneering on his bus!
He then starts saying how it is people like me (?) who cause people like him to have to drive buses for a living; and that is why he is a socialist and always votes Green (*snigger*); before opening the door, grabbing me by the collar of my jacket dragging me down the bus to the front door and physically ejecting me onto Tamaki Drive..(and all the time I was saying "do not forget everybody vote Libertarian on election day" which only seemed to make him angrier!).
Needless to say when a bus stops right in the middle of Tamaki Drive during rush hour it causes a traffic jam with numerous cars backed up, and tooting, and I was fortunate not to be run over!
Gosh...what kind of a World are we living in!
