Brash quits

Don Brash has resigned from Parliament.

[quote]He said he had no regrets about his decision to enter politics.

"I feel very good indeed about my four-and-a-half years here," he said. But he admitted to feeling some sadness about his decision.

"I've come to the conclusion that now is the right time for me to leave Parliament and I informed John Key of that earlier today.

"I entered Parliament in 2002 with the intention of making a difference and I leave believing that I've done that. The National Party is in great shape to win the next election and I believe that debate about economic policy and about the Treaty is more mature and more realistic than it was five years ago."[/quote]

Thanks Don for all you have done.?
