Nisbet, Alistair, 1958- :Future tornado predictions?... 8 May 2011
Press (Christchurch, N.Z.)
The title is 'Future tornado prediction?... There follow six cameos featuring the new ACT leader Don Brash and others in his trajectory. In the first frame 'Seemingly dormant air begins spinning to the right...' and the head of Don Brash starts to spin in an anti-clockwise direction. In the second cameo Don Brash 'then collides with stale air spinning from the left and the head of the leader of the Labour Party, Phil Goff, seems to be running out of steam as he spins to the left. Next comes 'unstable air spinning from the North' and Hone Harawira, the leader of the new Mana Party, appears with steam belching out of his ears. The Don Brash tornado 'then merges with the tepid air spinning in the centre...' as he twists around the Prime Minister, John Key 'creating volatile air that no matter what the spin...' John Key and Don Brash are twisted together so tightly that lightning strikes and they move off together in a vortex that 'will flatten everything in its path...' - A sign saying 'Welfare' is lying on the ground. Context - The former leader of the National Party has ousted Rodney Hide from his role as leader of ACT and taken over himself. Together with Roger Douglas he will be espousing a very right-wing monetarist ideology which he probably hopes will influence the National government. Quantity: 1 digital cartoon(s).
