Here's a nice little twist for the Exclusive Brethren: during the interview in which the "secret seven" emerged from the shadows and explained why they had been backing Don Brash, one of their number laid out their political philosophy:
"We hold government to be ordained by God and governments are raised up and also, I might add, dismissed, by God"
I wonder then how they feel about the election result. After all the dust has settled, it looks as if Helen has won the election. Does this mean she is "ordained by God"...?
