Well, here we are at Party C0nference Central in central Auckland, the city whose new motto is, the decision’s maybe and that’s final.
Candidates College met yesterday morning – and if that’s the face of National’s future, the outlook for the parliamentary wing of the party is bright.
Pre-conference entertainment last night was a debate with the moot that women MPs deserve more.
The affirmative team, Nikki Kaye, Denise L’Estrange Corbet and Amy Adams argued that women MPs deserve more and that men MPs already had more than enough.
The negative team, Maurice Williamson, Robbie Rakete and Todd McLay argued that women already had too much.
The judge, David Farrar, had been bribed with champagne and chocolate and declared the women’s team the winners.
He declared Maurice best speaker. With lines like, why is there only one Monopolies Commission? he deserved it.
