    The current National Party caucus in a nutshell – a bunch of total no hopers who decided to commit electoral suicide at a time when we need adults in charge of this country.

    Andrei – that criticism was fair for some of the caucus before the election, but not now. Some of the good MPs are still there and have been joined by new ones. All understand why the party didn’t deserve to win the election & going on what I learned at the November party conference, are very firmly focused on what matters, being an effective opposition and ready for government.
