Damian Light to lead United Future

Damian was deputy leader and the only visibly active member of United Future other than Peter Dunne so this is no surprise.

I’ve met Damian, he’s a nice guy, and intelligent enough to know how hard things are going to be for him and the party from here. But he and the party will have made arrangements to campaign so might as well at least have a go, and then reassess things after the election.

    An uptick for Mr Lights hopeless optimism.

    • There’s a lot of hopeless optimism in politics.

      But for there to be a properly functioning democracy there has to be people prepared to stand up and be counted, or at least to participate.

        I wonder if he’s related to Laurie Lee and descended from the Light who was instrumental in the execution of Edward II.

        What would the PDT do if the downtick function was removed ?
