Giving pragmatic conservatism a bad name

with one comment

The 6 October 2008 issue of Critic has a lengthy article about the Dunedin North candidates including Mr Michael Woodhouse, the National Party candidate, who is CEO of a local private hospital. Mr Woodhouse is obviously the type of leader that New Zealand needs, as displayed by his following published comments:

“I would call myself a pragmatic conservative . . . when I was here [at uni] it was a competition of who could dress down the most . . . Now it’s a bloody fashion show . . . I love spring around here, it’s bloody fantastic, the skirts were never this short in my day.”

“Better not print that,” he added.
