Audrey Young channels Cluster Farrar

My good mate Cluster Farrar got it badly wrong on the ACT coup, running the lines of a bitter and twisted Bill English when it was obvious to those in the know that Rodney was rooted and just needed a good push.

After Rodney got pushed he then ranted about how people didn’t like the way Don got rid of Rodney, mainly because he did not follow a text book path that is approved within the beltway.

This meme has been picked up by Audrey Young in todays Herald.

Brash is Act at heart, but the ruthless way he got rid of Hide has damaged him.

Really Audrey? Where have you picked that up? Long cups of soy latte watching Farrar chug Quarter Pounders? From members of the National Party who have having a sook about Don Brash running for another party? From inside the beltway where people care about these things? Or like Cluster Farrar have you been thinking that the general public are actually interested in politics?

I believe most voters didn’t read anything more into the coup than that little prick Hide who was rorting tax payers dollars and got caught got replaced by an older guy who nearly became PM for another party a few years back, and seemed to have a few good ideas on Maoris?

If damage means receiving a flood of donations to the empty party coffers, or increasing membership at a rate that would make all political parties very, very envious, and building a good team to fight the election with when voters are actually listening then Don Brash most certainly is damaged.
