Act president Chris Simmons on Don Brash’s sudden trip to Europe: Brash’s skills were in economic management, not in “glad-handing rugby players and tickertape parades” which he would happily leave to Prime Minister John Key.
John Banks: “I’m going to do the photo opportunity with Richie McCaw,” he laughed. “I need the votes more than Dr Brash.”
Geez. Talk about damning of Key’s sucking up to the All Blacks. And Banks admitting both that he’s in deep trouble in Epsom and that a photo-op is the only way the Right can win votes is hilarious.
Key’s handshake interlope fail was a metaphor for his entire parasitical contribution to the Cup. Doesn’t even know anything about rugby.
