ACT reject coalition

Don Brash announced yesterday that the ACT Party, if it still exists after November, may not go into formal coalition with any government.

And nor should they

A principled party would not need to.

And a party with John Banks holding the anchor seat would not want to.


  1. If they have above 10% - in particular 15% or more

    then they must

    Half the current National caucus was brought into Parliament by Sir Don Brash - they owe him their allegience. Half of the rest are capable of simple arithmetic: they know Don is far far better for NZ than Bill.

    Don should be Finance Minister

    Hell - Don should have been PM and Helllen in Gaol.

    But a good ACT showing means Don would have the numbers to roll English.

  2. Don should be Finance Minister.

    But if you think the ACT Party will get anywhere near 10% of the vote, you're delusional.

    And if you want John Banks anywhere near cabinet, you're insane.

  3. And if you think the Libertarianz will get anywhere near 0.1% of the vote you're delusional.

    Forget about ACT Pete and concentrate on your own embarrassment of a party.

  4. Ah yes, another bold and insightful comment from someone too timid even to leave a name.
