So who exactly did FIGJAM consult with in National?

Sources inside caucus have told this blog that at yesterday’s caucus meeting Peter Goodfellow stood up and said the party were not happy with the electoral reform legislation that Simon Power failed to consult the party on.

Good on Peter. (cough, choke, splutter) He may be tits at fundraising, and generally wanders around looking spaced out, but we can’t all be Sir George Chapman. He stood up to a senior cabinet minister and he deserves credit for this, especially when the PM is on record saying he wanted the current president because Peter will do what he is told.

Simon Power has betrayed his party by not consulting the party. The word is the board are really pissed off with him, but they should have been hammering him months ago because it is obvious that FIGJAM is an appropriate nickname. He needs to be hit hard with a weighted sap if you want him to see sense, so complaining now is not going to do much good.

So we now have a party that is pissed off with a moronic senior cabinet minister who kowtowed to Labour but was not even willing to consult the board of the party he represents. Maybe they should not accept his nomination for selection. Let him run as an independent and we will see if  his fucked up liberal elite world view is relevant in today’s New Zealand.
