United Past

It's not often that you get to read a coherant statement from a looser in a political battle. I thought this article from Mark Alexander (part of the United Future list which was not returned) was a good one.

In particular, I thought it was interesting to suggest "the more we accentuated our sectarian identity, the more our Christian support abandoned us to support National."

I think National's massive success in the last election was to gather support from all the flavours of the right. Mark's statement would tend to support that.
