    Yep…There is no coming back for him.

  2. weka 2

    so not McVicar then?

  3. mickysavage 3

    Vote delayed and he promised to forgive all his loans to the party …

    Get the feeling he is trying to negotiate a way to hang on?

  4. Tracey 4

    David Garrett


  5. A bit of confusion in the media. RNZ says he’s resigned, Stuff’s headline says that too, but the actual story says ‘offers to resign”. The Herald also says “offers to resign”.

    Hopefully it’ll be Garth McVicious who replaces him. He should be able to keep them sucking 3 or 4% off National’s vote. But, but … Maurice Williamson, anyone?

    Why is it even an issue here. The CP are not even in the House. Christine Rankin will make a great leader, her or McVicor. Common sense and true blue values!! Don’t you see the cesspit NZ now is??

      Yes, we do see the cesspit that NZ has become under the policies and leadership types that you favour.

    • millsy 6.2

      I would hardly call a place where people enjoy the freedom to express themselves sexually a ‘cesspit’. Quite the opposite.

      But if Rankin and McVicar had their way, homosexuals would be locked up, and single mothers publicly shamed.

      Among other things.

  7. Just musing here, but I have a terrible feeling that it wasn’t the sauna interview itself that was the issue. Could it be that being in a sauna with a gay man was the real problem?

    • weka 7.1

      I’ve been assuming it’s a discomfit with two men together thing (rather than the Crazy Colin thing). Probably doesn’t even matter if the other man was gay or not, I’m sure it looked way too homoerotic for the CP.

    • Rodel 7.2

      TRP -No but a sauna with Ms Rankin? Now that’s a problem-

  8. Tanz 8

    so isn’t he allowed to be gay now?

  9. Richard Christie 9

    Graham Capill for a comeback?

  10. Lanthanide 10

    On WhaleOil, he shows the ‘sauna interview’ is just a smokescreen. It never made any real sense to me, having watched the interview, what was so objectionable about it.

    Turns out he [deleted. Actual proof is required and the statement is otherwise clearly defamatory – MS] to the board about it.

  11. Tanz 11

    Red, you can’t reason with the respondents here, leftie la la land!

  12. gnomic 12

    Who was this person?

    Surely whoever it was will now have more time to spend with his money, family, God, and so on. We should all be very happy for him.

    And they can hardly find anyone more fatuous??? Oh wait, what was that bizarre blonde’s name again?

  13. Stuart Munro 13

    Stringer seems to have been fronting the media for the formerly CCCP – hard to imagine anyone with less credibility, but I’m sure the conservatives will find someone.

    I’m not too keen on Craig’s end of the political spectrum, but the moonlandings/chemtrails were pretty much a beat up – nothing really to do with him or his party – just a natural prudence about swearing to things he never saw.

    Craig spent mostly his own money trying to get elected – which makes him about 1000 times less corrupt than the Gnats – why Key didn’t support him I guess.

    Banks might be the next one in – cleaner than Key, no troublesome ambitions or principles, and will stay bought (if bought by the Gnats).
