I am amazed that NZPA regards as news worthy the opinions of Winston Peters on Don Brash.
Are they now going to publish the views of Rodney Hide on how Helen Clark is going to be rolled by Phil Goff? Or the views of Saddam Hussein on how he wants Colin Powell instead of Geroge Bush to be nominated by the Republicans?
I mean hello they are political enemies. Brash has been so sucessful he has doubled National’s poll ratings, at the expense of NZ First which has halved. National now gets eight times as much support in polls as NZ First, and at the last election they only got twice as much.
In fact you know when a leader really is in trouble – when his opponents stop attacking him or her, as they no longer see you as a threat.
