I wouldn't say chasing votes, --going by the article (if you can) he's just a concerned parent, and its a shame his son got caught up in it all, being the Auckland City Mayor wouldn't exactly help.

As he stated "binge drinking was wrong". To many younger people think it's fun to get plastered to the point of death.

Nothing wrong with drinking, I think most of us have been a bit to happy:waughh: at one time or another, but when it gets to a point of self poisoning, thats a bit over the top.

Yep. I'm sure he arranged to be speaking at the inquest just before the voting closed and after the time it was best to post votes so they get there on time. NOT!

Voting is almost finished. To say he did for votes makes me sick, if I was him I would sue their defamation asses for every cent

As much as I dislike the guy, I think he was there today because he had a personal connection with the family (if only as a parent of a child at the same school).

At least his presence may have taken some of the media heat off the family...

As far as 'chasing votes' is concerned: too little, too late.

Postal voting closed yesterday and you have to visit a polling place if you still want to vote - until Saturday, I think... Anyone that was going to vote already has.

As he wasn't there at the time I can't understand what he was in the witness box for except for a bit of electioneering.

As much as I dislike the man (even tho I've never met him) ... I think he was genuine but he needs to give his twit of a son a good backhander to the left ear for his involvement.

Coroners can hear from any person they think may shed some light on the cirmumstances of the death so that's probably reason enough for Banks to be there.
