Connell given the Kiss of Death

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

So Raikaia MP Brian Connell is threatening to leave the National Party? Well good on him! National doesn’t need him as an MP if he considers his party affiliation is of no importantance when making decisions.

You see, the trouble with Brian is not that he was ranked 27th – it is that no one noticed he was ranked 27th!

He of course suffers from the problem where he believes he is an MP simply because he is great, and that it has nothing to do with the party he stood with. I would guess that in actual fact, he was virtually unknown before 2002.

Connell’s predecesor was Prime Minister Jenny Shipley who held that seat for many years. Quite frankly, any donkey who stood under the National Banner at that time would have won the seat.

And as we are finding out, Connell actually is a donkey. Pity help the Raikaia people! Although they can live in hope that they will have a new MP in 3 years time because Brian, you idiot, you’ve just been given the kiss of death:

Dr Brash confirmed there was nothing stopping the MP becoming independent,
as the party-hopping law lapsed at the election.
