Don Brash resigns as Leader of National Party
Dr Don Brash has just resigned as leader of the New Zealand National Party.
He had called a press conference at 1pm after mounting revelations about his leadership in a book by researcher Nicky Hager.
Dr Brash made his announcement to a press conference called at short notice.
His resignation would take effect from a special caucus meeting on Monday, he said. This will probably be John Key's chance to take the leadership. Don Brash has done a great job for National and although there were alligations he certainly did a better job as leader if we compare him to Bill English.
Now is the time for National to take the reigns and build up to a landslide win at the next election...
Onwards and upwards.
