It seems Dr Jamie Whyte is the new leader of the ACT Party. I have mixed views after reading his book and his latest news statements. Certainly he is a shift in the right direct in terms of ideology; though I suspect he might fall prey to the idea that the electorate is stupid, so you have to pull the wool over their eyes.
In any case, I can understand the desire to 'placate conservatives' who are perhaps an important element of the party. The problem is that I suspect this is a precursor to a wholesale sell-out. I'm not sure the extent to which is 'posturing' or 'coaching' conservatives, who would otherwise be destined to join the Conservative Party. I actually think it would be a good idea if religious and other dogmatists joined Conservatives and left ACT to intellectual libertarians, then they might both get 5 seats. There is a large market to be developed here; particularly among youths, and particularly online.
Went to the beach today; surprised that a former National Party supporter now votes Green (a former farmer). Unbelievable how they are losing supporters....to the Greens???
