Don has resigned. I feel immensely sad and disappointed. It is one more nail in the coffin of politics for me.
Update; Gerry Brownlee is supporting John Key. Is Key a foregone conclusion?
My feeling is he will make National indistinguishable from Labour but capture the public imagination and take National to victory anyway. Then we will have another innings of National largely supporting the status quo. As they have, in general, always done. Labour govts have always been the doers.
Barry Soper has just described Don Brash as a most "unconventional politician" and not suited to "this place". Parliament=conformity? National=conformity.
