Goodness it has been fascinating to see all the attempts to paint Don Brash as some sort of throwback to the 19th century. His latest crime is declaring he is not a feminist. I’m sorry people but get real – regardless of the technical definition, a guy labelling himself a feminist is just silly. It’s the sort of thing Steve Maharey would do.
The left are desperately trying to portray Brash as reactionary. This is an incredibly false portrait of a man who is a genuine market and social liberal. As seen yesterday in response to questions at Grey Power.
Despite an audience very much wanting to hear a conservative message, Brash made very clear he supports civil unions, and the prostitution law reform.
Don’s main crime has been to twice take National ahead in the polls, thus making it crucial he is ‘taken down’.
