Mike Williams, the Liarbour Party president, who probably did more to help National win the election than any other, is finally stepping down.
The Sunday Star-Times reports that 'Batman' will quit at a Liarbour Party gathering on Saturday.
Willimans has been an entertaining bagman.
He should be remembered for his associations with Owen Glenn and what that led to.
There was him caught lying on tape at that Liarbour conference last year.
There was the scurrying off to Melbourne at the height of the election campaign, and him being revealed as 'Batman' , the character leaking the H-fee documents to the Dominion-Post.
Indeed, perhaps Mike might deserve more credit for National's victory than we might originally think.
Nontheless, Uncle Helen remains a 'very old friend' of his.
Which brings me on to his directorships.
There are at least seven of them, reported Kiwiblog in April, bringing in nearly $200,000 a year.
Now, is obviously the time to start stripping him of those roles too, unless you feel he deserves to keep a few in recognition of his role in helping secure a National victory!
