    Why didn’t Dr O’Sullivan ask about the quality of State Houses while National was in Government? Why wait ’till the Coalition is in to begin his campaign? Nat naturally.

      “It’s time to go. We get into the battered Subaru to drive to the airport. On the way back we talk politics, not poverty. He’s quite open that he’ll give it a crack – perhaps in another five years or so. He’s a candidate from central casting, that much is obvious. It’s been obvious to all the political parties that have asked him to stand, which is the lot except National.

      Funnily enough, that could be his best shot. He doesn’t rule it out. He finds Labour paternalistic at times, although he doesn’t rule it out either. He knows he’d get flak from his people for throwing his potae in with National but there is a knowing grin that suggests he might quite enjoy the fuss. Nothing has been decided. There’s time for that.

      I wait for my plane at the Kaitaia Aero Club, where the fire is going and the bar is open. Inside are a dozen locals, mostly over 60, all Pakeha. I get talking to Jimmy, who wears a blue-and-white checked shirt and a sleeveless puffer jacket, his badly dyed hair slicked over his head. I tell him I’m writing an article on Lance O’Sullivan. “Bloody socialist,” he says. “Keeps trying to give things away for free.””

      That was 4 years ago, and to some in Te Hiku Dr Lance has got a bit up himself. His performance at the screening of Vaxxed, and his continued disrespect of anyone who fails to share his views has cost him dearly. He has an ego of some size and would find fitting into an existing political party a struggle. Perhaps he could fill the vacuum created by the demise of TOP.
