How Don Brash becomes the Prime Minister
“I am also pretty sure that Banks and Brash know that electorally they are rat poison as candidates. They are both pensioners, with Brash over 70. They also both know that their best years politically are behind them.”
Cameron Slater in March 12th before he was bought on board
So this is Don's last chance for his wide eyed free market dogma to be implemented with devastating purity. Would he be satisfied as Finance Minister? We all know his ambition is for Prime Ministership. Even if Key gave Don Finance at some point his far right economic Darwinism would spook all moderates and Key would pull back, would that stop Don?
We all know it wouldn't. He's rolled one National Leader and he's toppled Rodney without even being a member of ACT. His take over of ACT was a corporate coup led by ACT's big money mafia. They would pull the exact same game with Key. Key has already said he'd leave if he lost. National's caucus will cut a deal with Don under Key if it meant Government.
Don's ambition is bigger than John Key's resolve.
A vote for John is a vote for Don.
