Michelle Boag is useful to National as an unfettered attack dog. She can sit back and say the shutty things that some people (supporters) think and yet can be dismissed by current National figures as a has-been.
She keeps getting invited to current affairs program for 'balance' and loyally keeps providing partisan sound bites for the media circus.
Not a very constructive approach for these challenging times.
Im a Greens and Labour supporter but I’ve always quite liked listening to Michelle Boag on The Panel. Although I haven’t listened since that dreadful Wallace Chapman took over. I’m relatively young (30) so I never knew anything about Michelle prior but always enjoyed when she was on with Brian Edward.
