Gerry Brownlee will not restand for Deputy Leader, which means a unity tickey of John Key and Bill English will be
elected annointed on Monday. This is a very good outcome for Caucus and the Party, while somewhat tough on Gerry who I think has put in a damn good performance this year, It’s just the reality of politics, that sometimes you move sideways. In the long term I think Gerry will gain kudos for his decision.
My expectations is Bill will be Deputy and Finance, with Gerry No 3 and still Shadow Leader. Beyond that I won’t guess!
