A puzzled reader sent me this question – what is National up to?
It seems that no-one knows National are up to. Not even National. Even Fran O’Sullivan is expressing doubts:
“unfortunately New Zealand’s conservative leader John Key would rather indulge his crush on Obama, than directly mix it by contesting Helen Clark with a clear agenda of his own.”
It’s not long until the MPs will leave Parliament and hit the streets. Let’s see of the National caucus can keep itself together til then.And for those who will say it is all in Labour’s imagination that there’s a leak within National, this line from TV3’s story last night should give some pause for thought:
“3 News can also reveal we were informed of John Key’s meeting on Monday with British billionaire Lord Ashcroft because of a leak from within the National Party.
So Key’s claims of a simple mistake might not be so simple after all.”
