  1. Newshub reporting (unconfirmed) that Judith Collins is the new leader.

    Edit: With Gerry Brownlee as deputy leader.

    Edit: Confirmed, Judith making speech now.

  2. Kudos for Todd to step down when he knew that this wasn’t going to be the job for him. It takes balls to say that. Even though I won’t support his party, I still feel for the dude. Had shit odds from the get go and then his underlings go ahead and pull stupid stunts. This election is definitely going to be an interesting one.

  3. Good call leaking his own health concerns before Michelle Boag could.

    In all seriousness, I have a lot of respect for someone who can walk away from a highly public, highly powerful job in favour of one’s health.

  4. So is it going to be Luxon next, or do they need to find another sacrificial lamb for this election, and Luxon will step in after they lose it?

    Edit: oops, Luxon not Luxton

    Edit 2: just read a different comment saying Luxon can’t be leader as he’s not a sitting MP. Another sacrificial lamb it is, then.

  5. Can anyone else see Dan Bidois emerging as the new charismatic face of the national party over the next few election cycles?

    He has quite the background, and doesn’t come across as just another bald, middle aged white man in a suit.

    I Don’t like the guy, but there’s room for political charm in the guy

  6. Nothing against a guy stepping down from exhaustion or mental health if we assume that to be true, but I hope members of the opposition now appreciate the exhaustion that comes with leading the country through a global pandemic.

  7. I’m surprised there has been no mention of Christopher Luxon, like, *at all.* Either in the media, or, as far as I can tell, in this thread. Now, I know it would be silly to consider a politician with as little experience as he has for the role, but I’m still surprised his name doesn’t appear to have come up once as a potential candidate to put his hat in the ring….?

    [ ✔ ] Male
    [ ✔ ] White
    [ ✔ ] Not young

    Under most circumstances, you’d think he’s got exactly the qualifications National looks for…

    Anyway, just surprised. Props to Muller for making what can’t have been an easy move for the sake of what does sincerely seem to be his mental health.
