The Herald reports that Graham Stairmand, president of Grey Power has sent National a stern warning.

He believes the Nats’ proposed partial privatisation of SOEs “will seal the fate of the National Party… Nobody will be naive enough to believe that this is not going to be a step to full privatisation.”

Also in the Herald, Garth George writes that:

At last the National Party has done something to differentiate itself from Labour and to put paid once and for all the epithet “Labour Lite” which has been applied to John Key and his team by some of our less perceptive political commentators.

Of course, after the first paragraph or two it turns into the normal Tory rant. On the upside I suppose that’s two decent paragraphs more than usual.
