My friends in ACT really really did not need this.
Everyone knows Dr Slash and Mr Burn and now there’s Madam Hilary.
What is it with ACT people and lack of political judgement? Why do they get so wound up over ideology and policy that they leave their brains at home when they go to Wellington? First David Garrett and his lies to the courts and now this flannel headed fool who has lent part of her anatomy to the promotion of a brothel in the cradle of New Zealand’s Presbyterian Church. One hopes she has not provided other anatomical promotions for the establishment’s internal décor.
Has she introduced modern marketing techniques to this southern outpost of the oldest profession? Do they have a happy hour? Is there a frequent f****rs points programme? Perhaps the lucky dip – if your ball is drawn out of the bag you get a freeby on Friday. You’ve got to be in to win, you know. Has she negotiated a place in Winston’s little golden book for pensioners? Let’s face it, there’s nothing better to prolong life than a free bus ride down to the local knock shop for a bit of heavily discounted poontang.
She might have disclosed her ownership of the building to the party’s board but I’ll bet pounds to peanuts they got the shock of their lives to find it is their number five list member who is batting her eyelids at this sordid clientele.
Adolf can think of nothing better to drive away the women’s vote for ACT than this latest piece of blond stupidity. So, for Dr Slash to get his magical 15% party vote, Madam Hilary has successfully ensured he has to get 30% party vote from the male populace of NZ.
This evening’s opinion polls are cold comfort for both National and ACT.
Forget about National’s meteoric upward trajectory . It’s the fate of its coalition partner which will be sending the frighteners through the party’s hierarchy. Clearly Dr Brash’s magnetic attraction for voters seems to have been an illusion. Four reputable polls now have him attracting no more electoral support than did Rodney Hide.
If ACT doesn’t ‘sort out its shit’ pretty quick smart, National will be left up the creek without a reliable coalition partner on the right, a counterbalance for the Maori Party. On current polling there is a real chance ACT won’t get enough party votes to gain even one list member.
I wonder how long Dr Slash and Mr Burn will hang around then.
