Strange how aggressive and intimidating behaviour towards Labour and Te Pati Maori wahine has been turned by National and some in the media into an accusation against Labour and 'gangs'. I have seen some of this behaviour against left wing women close up. Angry, often older, white men get right into the face of young women and yell and threaten and physically intimidate. Our lovely mayor and her supporters are familiar with this behaviour against them. More recently I have observed carloads of hoons drive up and down past Labour party candidates doing street corner meetings, gesturing and yelling racist, misogynist comments as well as vocal support for National.
