The Herald reports views of parties on whether they’d want Sir Richard McCaw as an MP:
National: “He’s articulate, he’s an intelligent guy, there’s a range of things he could do.”
Labour: ” He … doesn’t mind the odd bloody nose which can be a help in politics.”
Greens: “Richie is welcome to join the Green Party, but can he bring Piri Weepu with him?”
Maori Party: “It would be great to have the calibre of leadership that someone such as Richie McCaw would bring.”
Act: “What does he think about the regulatory environment, what does he think about tax?”
I like that ACT actually mentioned policies!
