and equally clearly, it seems to be working.  

Step 1 ... trot your wife out to have her pledge forgiveness for whatever 'we' (as in Rachel and I) have done while invoking Bill Clinton's  shermanesque statement "I did not have sex with that woman".

Step 2 ... 'encourage' those loyal to you on the Board to resign thereby depriving the Board of a quorum and the ability to move against you.    Get your mate, Brian Dobbs, Conservative Party Chairman, to dissolve the Board pending fresh 'elections'.

Step 3 ... reach out into the la la land of Colin Craig true believers to cherry-pick a new Board that, seduced by the promise of unlimited funding from your family fortune, will welcome you back as the Prodigal Son and Messiah reborn.

Keep watching to see this scenario develop.

Just one problem with this.   Colin  Craig ain't going anywhere with National.   He is forbidden fruit(cake).   He's never going to have a cup of tea with John Key.   They won't be gifted a seat.  Nor do the Conservatives stand a bolters chance of reaching the 5% threshold after the events of the last few days.

And the really sad thing is that there are good and true people in the Conservative Party who deserve much better than this.   I have a passing acquaintance with John Stringer who blew the gaffe on all of this.   John was the Press Secretary to my Minister in Parliament.   I found him to be passionate, honest, hard working and a Christian gentleman.    He must feel terribly let down.

This whole thing is hilarious. Back-stabbing, philandering right-wing hypocrisy at its finest. Keep it up guys!

Craig Right Wing - I don't think so.

Howie ... it's not hilarious, more sad that the decent people duped into following Colin Craig have been so let down.

Pdm ... agreed - their economic policies were essentially 'wet' ... they opposed asset sales for instance. Cultist yes.

I‘m waiting for the “Your Voice” party to show up.

You know the one where the elected politician in his/her maiden speech says this is the last you’ll hear from me. Reading out the opinion of members of his electorate from that point forward.

Imagine…Parliamentary Privilege for the common man.

Noel .... Hmmmmm, with 40,000 voters in each electorate the Member going to be hard pressed to achieve that and then what?

Ritual sexual abuse is not confined to the Satanic seat of power, it has filtered down through society, from the top to the bottom, to a local level. People regarded as upstanding members of the community, often in influential positions, are involved in paedophilia and their respectable public face is far removed from their sordid private lives. They are operating in our schools, churches, hospitals and even the council.

In the 1990's, senior staff members in Lambeth council were producing pornographic material of a "sadistic, bestial and paedophile" nature in the basement of the housing department, where they knew they would not be interrupted. A female member of staff disclosed how she was subjected to a rape on council premises "of horrendous proportions" which she was still suffering serious injuries from one month later. She described being raped alongside children and animals by senior figures in the council.

The findings of a report which included rape, assault and posession of indecent images of children, was never formally investigated by the police at the time or made public. Bulic Forsythe, a housing manager who told a colleague he was about to 'spill the beans' was found three days later, bludgeoned to death in his burnt out flat. The BBC's crimewatch launched an appeal for information, like they didn't already have the answers.

Bulic's daughter, who was born three months after his murder said, "It's really clear the fear that operated in the council - it seems from the report my father felt that fear," she added, he was scared that if he moved jobs "people in power could still get to him." He clashed with an individual who held a senior position and is named in the report as the head of this ring.

There seems to be more to this Whale created fiasco meets trivia than meets the eye. I'm not so sure Craig is going to look a chook over this actually. It may be the Whale that ends up with poo finger. What will happen then??

That Whale fellow must be a real bad bastard and a clever bastard to boot. Evil, even.

How on earth did he manage to persuade the party leader to try on a bit of jiggyjig with young lady? Then he must have singlehandedly persuaded the whole board to resign.

Craif already looks like a chook. A cooked chook without any saving gravy.
