    Halcyon,But  aren,t we talking about a new era for The National Party. I well remember the  way the leadership of Labour was  robustly dissected  and widely discussed on these threads.Don,t you think that as Labour  now have selected a New Leadership team &Governance style we the public voters  are entitled to   speculate on the opposition. Isn,t this what open government and transparency is all about?

    I think there is a big difference between discussing the merits of particular MPs and the ability to lead the Party and trying to rake up scuttlebutt like  “the dirty politics era of nineth floor of Beehive“.  Most of what was in the media was allegation.

    Like Labour, National has gone through numerous changes since the times you are referring to. They, like Labour have had several changes of leader. I look forward to seeing how Labour perform over the next 3  years.  That is more important than what past Labour MPs have done.

    Dr L

    Thanks for confirming what I said by saying this…….

    doogie They hold the same position as what is being brought in by The Coalition Government

    That is a significant departure from their earlier stated stand points. Clear turncoating by hollow men.

    Doogie

    Judith is past her use by date, way too much baggage.

    Nats  need to get their smarts on, choose someone who can change the culture within the party that has developed.

    Mr English could not stay, loosing two elections is a bitter pill to swallow.Not entirely his fault, awful campaign management.

    Again Doc, you make allegations against National MPs without providing any evidence. On what grounds do you base your comments about Steven Joyce? Lets see the  evidence.
