Patrick Gower admits he is a plonker who got it wrong last time. And Alf reckons he has got it wrong this time.
Last time he predicted Crusher was a likely National leader to succeed The Boss.
This time he is putting his money on Paula Bennett.
Alf trusts he is not putting too much money on Paula.
This by no means is meant to reflect unkindly on our splendid Minister for Social Development. When it comes to the crunch – or the crush – pretty well anybody in the National team would make a better prime minister than anyone the lefties or greenies could throw into the ring.
But it does seem Gower has a thing about Rubenesque sheilas with a bit of beef and solid thighs.
