No Minister

The misfortunes of one’s political enemies are always entertaining

It’s official! The National Party has given up on any chance of winning this year’s election. Or at least, that’s the only thing I can conclude from its MPs replacing their leader with someone no-one’s ever heard of and whose anonymity is well-deserved, to the extent that one of the MPs planning to vote for him couldn’t remember his name.

Todd “OK, Boomer” Muller takes over as leader from Simon Bridges.  Muller, a Bay of Plenty-based Christian conservative, should immediately make a strong contrast with Bridges, a… er… Bay of Plenty-based Christian conservative.  Of course, it’s also possible that Muller is just a placeholder for eventual replacement by Chris Luxon, a very different kettle of fish indeed, being a… er… Oh, yes!  Auckland-based Christian conservative.  Ah, what a broad church the National Party is – it has both Catholics and Protestants!
