Herald – Person of the Year

Actually it should be people of the year, but the main one I think goes to Kevin Brady.

[quote]Mr Brady's unwavering line on political parties' misspending at the last general election placed him in the equivalent of an official's nightmare – cast as an opponent of the governing parties and publicly attacked for both his thinking and for speaking out. To his everlasting credit, he stayed true to his convictions on the Labour Party's $800,000 of unlawful spending and produced a final report that did not suffer from the watering down so common in the public consultation process. The Prime Minister, her deputy, Cabinet ministers and, to their shame, the leaders of some minor parties, used all the latent menace and pressure they could muster, but Mr Brady, an officer of Parliament, continued to say what he felt to be right.[/quote]
