gersdorff_p21v1.jpgThis image has been sitting around since October 2007 in a un-posted post from all_your_base awaiting someone who deserves it.

I read Marty G‘s post today about the infighting in Act.

I’m awarding it to Rodney Hide. He seems to deserve it….

    That image would be from Nacts ‘101 ways we support beneficiaries’ handbook, no?

    Yikes!
    Rivalry and back stabbing has been a feature of the Act Party from the time of it’s inception. The original fight was between the liberals and the reactionaries for supremacy. It took a few years – and stacking of the board – but the reactionaries won out. The liberals either returned to their parties of origin (mainly the Nats) or retired from politics altogether. If the liberals had won out, I think they would have been able to maintain a level of stability similar to the Greens only on the other side of the political spectrum.

    Hi Anne, I agree. The Reactionary Right wing have become Rampant in ACT, indeed.

    NZ’s capitalists dream of absolute power
