Scott Simpson

The following comment from from today's Whaleoil blog may be instructive - note that Scott is a 'good mate' of Cameron Slater - the Whaleoil blogger. I would interested to know just how Mr Simpson blotted his copybook with the 'powers that be' - we have had enough years in the wilderness in this district as a result of the previous incumbent being on the outer.  The comment is in a 'round-up' of the new National members. Slater is the son of the previous Party president, and although apparently at odds with his father politically, he continues to have very good sources within the Party.  

Scott Simpson: Coromandel

Long time Whaleoil friend and National Party stalwart Scott has plenty of history in the party, though not all that history is necessarily working in his favour. Regarded as a little indiscrete, as a result there is a significant minority of caucus that simply doesn’t trust him, unfortunately for Scott that minority is called The Cabinet. Scott will need to do the hard yards on the backbenches to earn back the trust of caucus and cabinet.
