It took this to drag me out of self imposed exile.
National needs its very own ABC group.
My pick from my quiet corner of Northland is Dr Jonathon Coleman.
No murky, dodgy shit or Kauri stumps to be tripped up by.
New blood, personable, smart and a safe pair of hands.
Leave English as number 2. He has done a fantastic job in finance.
Next year should still be a resounding victory and a fourth term National government if they adopt the Labour parties ABC approach to selecting a new leader.
Key has been a fantastic PM for NZ, I cannot imagine we would have coped as well through multiple crisis if anybody else had been at the helm. Coleman has a similar air about him and the Lab/ Greens spin machine probably have no dirt on him.
