Quote of the day

Perhaps one for economist/ autobiographer of the moment, Don Brash:

Generally speaking, only simple conceptions can grip the mind of a nation. An idea that is clear and precise even though false will always have greater power in the world than an idea that is true but complex.
– Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America [1835-1840]

Someone should tell Jamie "Mr Incest" Whyte.

How difficult can it be to say nothing except "1% tax cut for every 1% in the party vote" from now until the election?

Or if you really want a quote, look to the last chapter where Don rails against democracy and universal suffrage, advocatibg "Guided Democracy" Singapore style (no doubt with himself as the "guide")

In short: Brash - unlike John Key - is now actually and openly fascist
