Which National Cabinet Minister said to Allan Peachey “You want success for other people. You’re a very enriching person whereas the rest of us have all come from backgrounds where we look after ourselves”? It’s a pretty revealing quote. National’s ministers aren’t about the greater good. They’re in it for their own glory.
Peachey helpfully narrowed down the list. She’s female. She’s a Cabinet Minister. She was elected in 2005.
By my count, that leaves only Kate Wilkinson and Paula Bennett.
Reckon it was Bennett. Wilkinson doesn’t strike me as the reflective type. Bennett though is cunning and self-interested as a weasel. After all, she started off playing at being a leftie but went Tory when she saw an easy, um, route to advancement via McCully.
Good to know that under all her fake caring bullshit she knows what herself and her National colleagues are really all about.
