Dr Don Brash has this afternoon confirmed former Federated Farmers president Don Nicholson as a candidate for Act at the November election.
But suddenly, there's a real sameness about the suite of Act candidates announced to date. You've got Don, John, John and Don (Brash, Boscawen, Banks and Nicholson, in that order). There's not a lot of diversity there, it has to be said.
So come on Don (Brash); have another press conference tomorrow, and confirm that Cathy Odgers aka Cactus Kate is going to be at #3 on the Act Party List. The current line-up looks like a Cabinet from the Holyoake years, which we're long enough in the tooth to remember. Two Dons and two Johns is not the prescription that Act needs.
