Description
Former leader of the National Party, Don Brash, is dressed as a groom and says 'If anyone knows of any good cause why this union between me and the ACT Party should not procede, speak now or forever hold your peace...' Beside him his bride, former ACT leader Rodney Hide, grimaces and says 'Ouch... the barrel is digging into my ribs...' Context - The ousting of Rodney Hide from the leadership of the ACT Party by Don Brash who is the new leader. There was obviously considerable political manoeuvring behind the scenes before the announcement was made - ACT now has both Roger Douglas and Don Brash as lead members - both far right. This move will have been of great interest to the National Party also. Quantity: 1 digital cartoon(s).
