Sick burn

Former WINZ boss Christine Rankin has declared that she will not stand for the ACT Party:

"I have never been an Act supporter and I am not standing for Act, and after the shenanigans of last week, I don't know who would be," Ms Rankin said.

She was referring to the advertisement published at the weekend that was headlined: "Fed up with pandering to Maori radicals?"

"I don't think inciting racial discord - probably a mild way of describing it - is something that most people want," Ms Rankin said.

Ouch. When Christine Rankin thinks you're divisive, then you really have problems.
