Bill ‘Double Dipton’ English

26/09/2009

John Arsmtrong devotes his NZ Herald column today to Bill ‘Double Dipton’ English and what is seen by many as the fiction that English’s main home is in Dipton, when his family reside in Wellington.

He notes that although it is not as yet a major issue it is a constant drip and is wearing down English’s moral authority.

If nothing else the impact is that according to Armstrong the affair has had the effect of reducing English’s power in caucus whilst Key’s ascendancy increases.

The column is well worth a look. A conspiracy theorist might think that Key has not acted to close this issue as quickly as he might have done in order to increase his overall authority within the party.
