Scott Simpson's Talents Highlighted!

Here is a direct and quite revealing quote from today's Whaleoil Blog. 

"Regular readers will know Scott Simpson is this blogs favourite National backbencher because he understands politics is a nasty brutal game and you have to be nasty and brutal to win.

He taught Cam most of what he knows when Cam was helping out in a variety of campaigns around auckland when he was still at school. Scott knows Auckland Politics inside out, even if he is now MP for Coromandel. 

So why the hell did Auckland Future use Nikki Kaye?

Nikki Kaye hasn’t had thirty years plus fighting the dirty war against the left, learning how to run campaigns that don’t make any mistakes, and hit back hard when the left go negative. And Scott is known as someone who retaliates first, which is a valuable attribute to have.


None of this would have ever happened on Scott Simpsons watch."

Even allowing for a little Whaleoil hyperbole, it still makes you wonder - he always appears the consummate nice guy to me - "nasty and brutal" - Golly!
