  1. Ngaro and bridges may have been sprung before they were ready for the new party story to go public, but they have handled it naively and terribly since.

      It seemed to me that the connection was in the Tamakis’ minds more than anything.

      Have Simon Bridges and Alfred Ngaro said anything about linking themselves to the Tamaki Party ?

      Does it matter?

      • Does it matter if they have handled it terribly? It matters for National. The seem to be doing their best to rule out their chances in next year’s election.

          I think they are gone already, Pete. Hence my comments. And I will say their election defeat will be richly deserved. Where is National on free speech? Nowhere to be seen.
          They are a bunch ”breeze sniffers.” They have no moral fortitude. Pragmatism is their game.

          It matters very much if the connection is real or only in the Tamakis’ minds.

          Hence my question. If the Tamakis have asked Alfred Ngaro to join them, that doesn’t mean that he’s going to. Unless he and Simon Bridges have said that they are joining forces with the Tamakis, it’s pure speculation.

    KiwiBuild is a total flop by the sound of it.

    I don’t know what Patrick Gower expects the government to do if parents don’t take their children to the dentist !!!
