I noticed that over the past few days Simon Bridges, whom I call Mr Negativity, has been very very quiet.
Some friends of mine are very pro National. I've often said to them that Simon Bridges is possibly Labour's second biggest asset. He should really be using this to say that we will support what is being done, that we would have done it slightly differently, but embrace Labour's handling etc. I hate the style of politics of taking the opposing view purely as you're not in power. I think people would come across a lot better if it wasn't so confrontational all the time.
He would look alot more Prime Minister like if he was supportive/acting like an adult.
Not doing this for me has the smell of playing politics at a time when we shouldnt. I fear he's not saying anything just so he can say when people complain, "Hey it was nothing to do with me"
Because ultimately if he becomes the PM, he will be the PM of all of us.
