What Brash should have said about the Brethren

When challenged about the Brethren joining his campaign, Brash should have rejected the implied collectivism of lumping all the supporters of a campaign together as ideologically identical, and said exactly what Ronald Reagan said in similar circumstances:
"When people join my campaign, they are supporting me; I am not necessarily supporting them."
Of course, this advice is a little late for the most recent election, but as it came up in Parliament again yesterday, it may come in useful for someone.
