The New National Party President is…

This morning the board selected Peter Goodfellow as the new National Party to succeed Judy Kirk.

Peter will be a one year interim President because he is deeply un-popular inside the Northern Region and he is up for re-election to  the board next year and it is likely that they will de-select him quick smart. He has a long history of doing not much and is likely to continue that tradition as President.

UPDATE: Conference is distinctly underwhelmed. He fails at the first hurdle when offered to take the chair from Judy Kirk, he passed up the opportunity. The new president’s first act was to dodge work. Nice! Why break the habit of a lifetime and start to do some work.
