Hubbard, James, 1949- :"I'm the Donald, and yer all fired!!!" ... 16 May 2011
New Zealand Press Association
The new ACT leader, Don Brash, with a huge Donald Trump-style wig, stands in front of a group of people in silhouette who represent 'Assets', 'welfare' and 'health' and says 'I'm the Donald, and yer all fired!!!' An ACT Party politician in the background tells an astonished man 'We've trumped the other parties with our makeover!' Context - Former ACT leader Rodney Hide has just been ousted in a bloodless coup from the role by Don Brash who has taken over the leadership of the party. Roger Douglas and Don Brash will create a far right party which is likely to be characterised by a 'Rogernomics' style of sale of state assets, market-led restructuring and deregulation and the control of inflation through tight monetary policy, accompanied by a floating exchange rate and reductions in the fiscal deficit. Also talk-show host and real estate magnate, Donald Trump, has been in the news because he was threatening to stand as a presidential candidate for the Republicans. Quantity: 1 digital cartoon(s).
