Richard Prebble has resigned as Leader of ACT.
In my opinion ACT have to elect Rodney Hide as Leader. He has huge visibility nationally, is a good performer in the House and a very hard working MP. He is their best chance of making 5%.
Rodney is a bit of a risk, as he can jump in with both feet before checking for nails in the puddle, but at 2% you need to take some risks.
I agree with Sir Roger that it would be great if Prebble stays in Parliament. He would be a huge boon to any centre right Government with his experience.
