This is so low.
You know exactly what you are doing here, demonising Colin Craig and the conservative party and by allusion anyone who votes for them or stands by them.
I expect this from liberals not from someone who claims to be conservative.

For the conservonutters to explain why DPF puts up with liberal views and does not endorse conservonuttery
From the kiwiblog disclosure statement http://www.kiwiblog.co.nz/disclosure_statement
I self identify as a classical liberal, which the Institute for Liberal Values of New Zealand succinctly summarises as a belief in individual rights, limited government, private property, free markets, tolerance, and reason.
On the political compass test I score +10 (right) on economic issues and -6.15 (libertarian) on authoritarian/libertarian issues. One can see NZ blogosphere charted here and NZ politicians here.
WEDDY the political compass above is DPF I score slightly less on economic and the same on liberal authoritarian as DPF and my IQ is around 140 almost not quite a genius and that’s allowing for a decline due to smokin pot for 35 years
You do know that on average conservonutters score lower than social liberals in IQ don’t you.
I guess if we had a combined judiciary and legislature, consisting of Wedbaiter sitting on a throne deciding right and wrongs of everything from a basis of good conservative reasoning, we would have a small government indeed – just Lord Wedbaiter, the cleaner/tea lady, the official scribe and the public executioner.
So I have to admit, it is a coherent political philosophy he has. Not a very attractive one, but certainly coherent…
I’m man enough to admit that I would probably take the test simply because of the hot girl at the stand.
I donated a tenner to SPCA (or something) at the Supermarket recently as the blonde girl collecting was put together like Scarlett Johannsen…

Actually, Blair raises an excellent point. I’m sorry for the ghastly mental image that will follow, but it is metaphorical, however. Will Winston and Colin Craig get shacked up politically, or (shudder) end up in parliamentary ‘bed’ together…?!! Given Craig’s weathervane/prehensile/all right, just damn confusing (!) stance on asset sales, I would certainly not be surprised. What do the rest of you think?
RRM, that’s an even ghastlier mental image. Given his stance/s on asset sales, though, CC does seem somewhat (…) flexible (…) in the policy department. Just whisper “I’ll fund your binding citizens referenda proposals no matter what the co$t in terms of public health and education funding” in his ear and watch the rapturous expression on his face. Fortunately, Key is far more fiscally responsible. Good thing too- look at California. And no, I don’t like the idea of a CIR on asset sales either. I don’t think that ‘citizens’ referenda are particularly good, period.
