it was awe inspiring

well. A little awe was created in my sleep-ridden state. Don Brash happily explained on National Radio that he had got feedback from just 2 Maori people about draft versions of his no-special-treatment-Maori speech.

Okay, so I have no idea at all how many people leaders usually get to look over their speeches. Possibly there were only a handful who got to see his speech and 2 was a pretty good ratio; but it made him sound astoundingly out of touch. And like he hadn't noticed that he was.

And it also looks more like National is attacking ACT and NZ First rather than Labour. Presumably, most of the people currently supporting Labour would be looking for (at most) a slow-down on race issues rather than a unilateral return to the 60s.
