Rumours are flying around the inner sphincter of North Shore political circles that none other than Don “PM” Brash may be about to announce his intention to run in the North Shore.
Barely able to conceal his glee, The Speculator believes The PM, or Preying Mantis (deliberate misspelling for those ACT supporters out there who can spell) is on the verge of announcing his candidacy for the North Shore electorate, where he will come up against National’s new candidate Maggie Barry and a very nice young man whose name I’ve forgotten representing a party hardly known on the Shore called “Labour.”
While it is taken as read that Devonportians and certainly not Speculator readers would want to have anything to do with Bron’s dashing approach to unleashing the gargoyle of populism, it is quite possible some elements on the Shore may find his “Rivers of Blood” approach attractive.
Should this come about, Speculator readers may have to tolerate a spot of more than occasional ribbing of PM and his eucalyptic view of NZ’s future (in which giant koala bears wreak destruction on NZ’s Anglo-Saxon population in their search for non-native flora).
