Frank Newman: Open letter to the Prime Minister
The Prime Minister
You have on a number of occasions ruled out having Sir Roger Douglas as a member of a National led cabinet, the most recent being this morning on Radio New Zealand (RNZ).
You stated on RNZ that the reason for excluding Sir Roger was his “far right agenda” is at odds with the policies of the National Party .
You are of course free to choose who you include or exclude from your executive and I have no issue whatsoever with you exercising that choice.
Could you please advise if there are sufficient differences between Mr Hone Harawira’s political views and the policies of the National Party for you to make a similar statement ruling him out of any future National led cabinet over which you preside.
[NOTE: The Prime Minister’s reply will be posted on this blog.]
