Dry rot

NZ's smartest socialist Chris Trotter has an excellent appraisal of the John Banks/Act thing in The Independent:

"ACT's membership base contains some of the best- informed and highly motivated political activists in the country. They are unlikely to respond positively to their party being over-run by a mob of witless knuckle-draggers."

The DomPost also has a good article covering Mark Blumsky's campaign launch (offline edition A10). With PR like this, it is no surprise Boo-Boo has moved up the Party List. I've never voted National, but I'd consider voting for Blumsky.
