Judith Collins says the review into the National Party’s disastrous election campaign is “confronting” but “ultimately fair”.
The National leader said the report won’t be publicly released, but it will be dealt with “internally” because it is a party issue.
“We are not going to be releasing it to everybody,” she told The AM Show on Wednesday.
On Wednesday, Newshub revealed the party created two different versions of the review – the full report, and a sanitised version with all the “gory details taken out”.
Between 2017 and 2020, the National Party of NZ suffered the largest electoral percentage of vote in over 100 years, what’s fascinating about the National Party Autopsy is that NO ONE has pointed out that this result marks the death spiral of the Party and that the Boomer dominance over political influence is now finally ended!
The National Party campaign was a train-wreck dumpster fire that collided with a school bus that exploded next to a pet store.
Pre Covid, Simon Bridges had built National a chance, but then a low poll spooked backbencher MPs into carrying out a coup with an MP who had all the false confidence of a tall man.
The Muller reign was a mix of cowardice and a woefully inflated sense of talent. Then the former President, Michelle Boag, passes privileged Covid patient information to a dickhead MP which implodes Muller’s leadership and in desperation the party turns to Judith, a dirty politics drenched politician with all the empathy and compassion of a hungry wolverine in a premature infants ward.
We all watched in horror as she blew Iain Lees-Galloway’s brains all over the set of the AM Show just to deflect attention from another errant MP who had been sending dick pics.
Then there was Gerry Brownlee with conspiracy theories, Paul Goldsmith couldn’t add and then National Party board member Roger Bridge rang ZB pretending to be ‘Merv’ to attack a National Party candidate who wasn’t white enough for his liking.
Judith ended up attacking fat people for fucks sakes!
On top of this was a policy platform that was all about amputating the State with the usual small government bullshit at a time when people were fleeing to the State for protection.
Privatise the border? How insane is that?
This was National’s border position…
…Simon Bridges fell foul of the sudden solidarity created by Covid and National were caught flat footed by a crisis that only became worse by more free market deregulation.
No one wanted to hear about the State being cut back when everyone was running to the State for safety.
It highlighted the utter vacancy of National Party ideology, all they kept coming up with was privatisation!
This campaign result was triggered by coward MPs who turned on their leader in a frenzied selfishness to protect their own jobs. Stripped of their fake ideology the electorate has seen the National Party for what they really are, self serving arseholes whose sense of teamwork is as temporary as Trump’s sense of decency.
The hollowness of National’s ideology created an enormous friction on the Right and once the woke gave Seymour the freedom of speech war and ACT hit 2MPs, they became the fault line for this backlash against National.
ACT became the Values Party of the Right the way the Greens are the Values Party of the Left.
The collapse of National is the end of a political dynasty and shows we as a country have finally hit the upper limit of boomer influence and farming political power. From here on in, National will decline as a political force while ACT radicalises more of the right and grows.
We are seeing the seeds sown of a far more polarised political future in NZ.
