Judith Collins would like her Cabinet position back, and John Key had better hurry up and get it done.
Collins will be acutely aware of the need to escape the back benches. She cannot hope to fulfil her destiny of becoming the greatest Prime Minister New Zealand has ever had, if she does not return soon to the Cabinet.
There will be no Antipodean Thatcher for us, unless John Key sees the error of his ways.
You could never accuse Judith Collins of lacking ambition. Or optimism. Or self-belief.
Collins will be hoping we have all forgotten about her role in Dirty Politics, or her central part in the Oravida scandal, and her hopes may well be justified. This is what happened when I began to type “Judith Collins” into Google. Not a mention of either.
She has been exonerated. Cleared! Her record is unblemished! And she dances too!
John Key should admit he got it wrong when he forced Judith Collins to resign. She didn’t do a single thing wrong. She was the victim of a vicious smear campaign conducted by the left, with the aid of her enemies in the National Party. They are all terrified of her tremendous talents.
They must be made to pay. To suffer. All of them.
It doesn’t matter what you think you read about Judith Collins, or what you thought you saw on television with your own eyes.
She did not pass on to a blogger personal details about a public servant. That public servant did not subsequently become the subject of online abuse and death threats.
Oravida? Nothing to do with her.
Cameron Slater? She barely knows the guy.
And this never happened.
We need Judith Collins in power. If she can make that many political scandals and disgraceful actions simply unhappen, imagine what she might be able to do to the budget deficit or child poverty.
