    Na, the ACT Party’s about as relevant as Jim Anderton’s Progressives. Only less so, because Jim’s a cabinet minister.

    Somewhat surprisingly it made the Canberra Times. The Libs are in such a complete mess, last month it was the Qld Libs who were reduced to considering choosing their next leader by drawing names from a hat – no joke. The next major State election, the ACT is next year but it’s as safe as houses, is WA and there’s a chance they’ll be competitive although if they can’t role the most incompetent government in the country, the NSW Iemma goverment, who knows…

    I’m surprised ACT has lasted so long. It was only initiated between right wing members of National and Labour to bring in rogernomics.

    They can probably thank Rodney Hide for it’s perpetuation.

    Does anyone understand what ACT actually represents apart from supporting National. They have rallied around the causes in the last couple of years and I was skeptical of the leadership being so badly misrepresented on this post, although I have never heard of the people mentioned.

    Is someone trying to bring them some kudos here before the elections??

    Is anyone else laughing at Tane’s recent habit of refering to everyone as bro?

    Talk about desperate.

    New Wallaby coach is one Deano from Chritchurch. Announced about 20 min ago

    bloody good on him. It means that the NZRFU wiont be able to pick him to run the allblacks when (not if, but when) Henry screws up.

    yeah but it’s a four year appointment so any advantage he might have had won’t accrue until after the next RWC… and I was quite keen on us winning that…

    Yeah…They have Robbie on a 4 year contract so even if he leaves Wallabies there will be no roll possible with ABs until after 2011 WC.

    It’s sadly obvious that we won’t be winning any more rugby games against the Wallabies while RD is in charge.

    Bloody good news, the further away Deans is from NZ rugby the better, you all seem to forget that he was responsible for the 03 RWC debacle.

    Ted Henry might not be the perfect choice but he is a lot better then Deans.

    Agree, Nell. I went, oh, shit. Clicked on the link, and went, oh, phew.

    Here’s to Rodney H’s successful strategy between now and the election, and going back over the 5% threshhold again.

    So many rats have jumped from the Liberal party ship in the last few weeks , I think its down to the worms in hull who are leaving now.

    Out of government the Tories dont even have a reason to exist, they are merely a drinking club for younger memebers born with a silver spoon in their mouth and Gods waiting room for those over 70, after a life of priveledge

    hinamanu, sorry to tell u this, but you’ve been had. I’ll let you off the hook. ACT doesn’t refer to the NZ political party. It refers to Australian Capital Territories.

    Oh, and btw, I’d have been had too, if it hadn’t been for the spoilers above. I did think it odd The Australian was talking about NZ politics, but since I know jack shit about the inner workings of the ACT party, and care slightly less, I was fooled.

    One of the suggestions being tossed around is for the ACT to merge with the Liberals. With the shambles the right are in it sounds like a good idea.

    Lindsay: WTF does that mean?

    GWW: crap as always. The libs are cleaning out the old guard, like any party does when they lose after three terms in power. In fact, exactly like Labor will be doing in about a year’s time – you don’t think Helen, Cullen, Mallard etc al will stay around for two terms in opposition and a lot of hard graft to get back in power. By which time they’ll be too old and need to retire. No, it is the pattern of things, get rid of those who lost, rebuild with newer and younger people who’ll actually be around when you next win.

    I would say they wouldn’t stay around for even one more term in power – if they win, there willl be a hand-over of power to younger hands. It would have Maharey, but he didn’t want to risk it in opposition that’s why he buggered off. So perhaps Goff is in the running…?

    Three more years! Yeah Right!
