Another coup attempt in National?

The Auckland Business Wanker faction seems to have convinced Don Brash to have another go.

What the wanker-set doesn't seem to understand is that Brash is about as popular as leprosy (or Ruth Richardson) among the electorate. Taking National further to the right may score points on ideological purity, but isn't going to gain it any votes - it will just end up fighting with ACT over the 5% who like total free market policies, while the rest of its support base goes elsewhere.
