Um, is there anyone who's genuinely excited by 'Don Brash: Orewa IV' (full text here). Anyone care to comment on last night's premiere?
Orewa I has been forgotten -- remember the idea of queing up at the Post Office to get your dole cheque? -- but Orewa II and III set the agenda for each respective political year and changed NZ's political landscape. It's bloody difficult to maintain that momentum, especially in a non-election year (as only blind optimism on Brash's part would suggest otherwise), but it seems like an awfully wasted opportunity to me. Even the usual suspects have so far failed to come out and try and talk it up. But do make sure you read it before you get the spin.
