Brash’s Back-stabbing Politics

I’ve been following some of the commentary about Don Brash’s takeover of the ACT Party Leadership, and the ousting of Rodney Hide.

I’m no particular fan of Hide’s, but isn’t this whole deal just a teensy bit unsavoury? I haven’t seen the term “back-stabbing” once, and yet it is all I can think of, to characterise the whole unseemly shambles. What is most galling of all though, is Brash’s apparent relish.  ugh.

Cant help but echo Winston’s sentiment in the BOP Times when he asks “if that is how they treat each other then how would they treat outsiders or you?”

Roll on election day.
