Brash Takes ACT- Wrong Move In My Opinion

I guess the rationale for Brash wanting to use the ACT vehicle for his political run was that it was easier than starting a new party.

Logistically speaking that is probably correct.

However I think Brash has made a tactical mistake in that ACT has far too much political baggage and that baggage will mean less support for Brash than if he had started a new party.

I guess the risk management analysis showed that the ACT takeover was worth the difference in vote intake. I’d have to disagree. Using ACT has cost Don Brash at least a 10% vote share. I would have gone for the new party. If it was at all possible.

Nevertheless, its good to see Brash back in politics, and I hope to hell he sticks it up that craven political coward and Maori (racist) party sycophant John Key. In fact I hope he sticks it up the whole damn useless crawling no hoping National Party.

You’ve gone the ACT path, and I think that was a mistake Dr. Brash, but best wishes anyway. Good to see some conviction back in politics rather than wishy washy spineless “all things to all men” nonsense.

  1. As much as I agree with you Red, I will now give Brash, and ACT, my support in November. I only hope he can bring a few Conservatives in with him and exit some of the raging liberals that lurk there.

    Incidentally, although I still haven’t reactivated my account, I took a look at New Zealand’s Premier Right Wing Blog (I wanted to see if Farrar’s head had actually exploded yet), and I see John Ansell is already campaigning. This is a gem:

    “Like a true Nat David, you are slooooowly getting it.

    Huge hoot how wrong-footed all the media luminaries have been from Day 1.

    Get your heads round this: on November 26, Don Brash will be Prime Minister.

    Epsom, Schmepsom!”

    Brash for PM!

  2. I agree Gantt. If Brash can clear those idiot liberals out of ACT, and perhaps even rename it, he’s the best bet in NZ politics by a country mile.

  3. It’s bloody hilarious the way the left are spinning this. They should be absolutely terrified. As I said when Trevor Mallard was getting uppity on WhaleOil the other day:

    “Trevor, Brash tak­ing over ACT with any­one as his deputy, up to and includ­ing Sadam Hus­sein, will only serve to make your pack of use­less fuck­wits even less rel­e­vant. Remem­ber what he did to you in 2005 when you had an effec­tive leader? How you only won the elec­tion through mas­sive elec­toral fraud? You really fancy another go with a com­pletely inef­fec­tual lead­er­ship team?

    The only peo­ple who should be more scared about this pos­si­bil­ity than Quis­ling Key and the Dip­ton Dou­ble Dip­per are Phil Goff and his conga-line of suckholes.”

    Strangely enough, he didn’t reply.

    Beautiful.

  5. Thank you gentlemen. I’ve been waiting to use the conga-line line since Mark Latham used it several years ago. It just fits so nicely with Liarbore these days.

    And the thought of Bill English soiling his breeches waiting for Brash to re-enter the house is heartening in these dark times.

  6. Brash for PM?
    And there’s me thinking I wrote a self-indulgent fantasy the other day.
    But why not?
    We have seen this week that anything can happen.
    Hasn’t it made our politics a bit more fun and interesting?

    Yep, you’re right FF, but especially interesting for John Key, Bill English and the rest of the Nats.
