From one of my local ACT Party colleagues
National Party leader John Key is keen to work with the ACT Party, but says there is no way he would give Sir Roger Douglas a cabinet portfolio.
Mr Key and ACT party leader Rodney Hide met at a cafe in the Auckland suburb of Remuera today, pledging their support for one another. Mr Key says he would be very happy if Rodney Hide became a minister, but he can not say the some for Sir Roger Douglas. Mr Key says it is clear New Zealanders want change, and is confident a National, Act, and United Future government would ensure a strong economy.
Mr Key says Rodney Hide would make a fantastic cabinet minister.
The message is clear. ACT is back, Rodney is in cabinet and Sir Roger is on the outer.
The only way to get Sir Roger into Cabinet is for National voters and undecideds to give ACT so much Party vote that John Key has no choice but to offer Sir Roger a Cabinet post.
National voters-the choice is yours.
