At the risk of pissing some people off I have to say that I admire Rodney Hide. We are politically poles apart..... well at least at different ends of the centre spectrum. If I was a National Party person and I am not, I would be tempted to enroll him, it couldn't possibly work out as badly as ACT recycling Banks, Brash etc. In fact it would probably work out very well.
It was once suggested to me by a prickly persona based in Hong Kong that I should dump Labour and suport ACT. I haven't laughed that much since someone explained the TINA Theory to me many years ago. The suggestion was made when Hilary Calvert was an ACT MP.
