Brash making a move?

The DomPost this morning has an article about machinations in Act to roll Rodney Hide and to somehow replace him with Don Brash.

Former National leader Don Brash is making a bid for a political comeback as ACT party leader ? if it will have him.

Dr Brash confirmed yesterday that if he was offered the ACT leadership he would take it, after previously rejecting behind-the-scenes efforts to woo him back to Parliament either as ACT leader Rodney Hide’s deputy or as co-leader.

Dr Brash said he would not contemplate returning to Parliament under either of those scenarios but would if offered the leadership.

His comments throw down the gauntlet before a crucial ACT board meeting next Saturday and breathe new life into ACT’s electoral prospects, which have been widely written off after a disastrous period for Mr Hide.

That makes the Perigo interview with Don Brash interesting as well. (Starts at 4:20)

My sources tell me that the rumours of John Banks being?involved?are simply that…rumours, though he may well be one of those whose finance will fall in behind a Don Brash led Act party.

This could well be an interesting week in politics.
