Not entirely fair

ObservatioNZ describes the present National party as "Muldoon with monetarism". WHile I think this is a perfect description of Brash - his autocratic leadership style, populist Maori- and beneficiary-bashing, and adherence to market fundamentalism - I'm not sure that it's entirely fair to the party as a whole. After all, National isn't just Brash - it also includes talentless born-to-rule tories, inbred rural consevatives, panty-sniffing monarchists, capitalists without a conscience, and "mother knows best" paternalists. Shouldn't they get a look-in too?


I thought it up in the spur of a moment.. I saw an article in the Guardian mentioning the "swivel-eyed loons" reference and worked out what Google was doing.

I'm trying to see if a suitably unique phrase results in a linked (high-ranking) page (like the National party home page) getting top billing for that search on Google - we should see by the weekend.
