It really does say something about the lack of actual talent inside the National Party that they keep trying to parachute in business leaders to run it – Brash, Key & now Luxon – The National Party hierarchy will literally do anything to stop Judith or Paula becoming leader.
This need to parachute in a business leader to run National stems from the fact that most of the National Party policy is toxic and New Zealanders won’t swallow it, but after 30 years of neoliberal cult worship, Kiwis prostate themselves in front of business men with the sort of embarrassing ease reserved for heroin addicts and their dealers.
Muddle Nu Zilinds desperate need to not intellectualise politics in case they reflect upon the toxic history of colonialism and the neoliberal agenda demands a businessman leader who will give the sleepy hobbits their warm hugs of common sense delusion.
Luxon will go far in National.
