Is it OK for ACT leader Don Brash to call a journalist ‘a deceitful bastard‘ and refuse to be interviewed by him?
Yes. Absolutely. Damn right it is.
Is it smart?
In an election campaign?
Even less so.
This (below) is how I prefer to see Don Brash.
Much better. This Don Brash is an electoral asset. That guy under pressure on TV3? Not so much.
