I’ve done some slightly cryptic posts over the last week or so following a flow of information from three sources about the role of Simon Lusk, inter alia, in the Brash coup.
Much of that is now a matter of record. The coup was financed by John Banks. Lusk became a consultant following a Joyce recommendation. Franks law firm also provided services. The fee was $30k.
The objective was to reinvigorate Act. No one told Joyce Brash’s negatives are higher than Hides.
It was run while Key was offshore. English was not informed by Joyce.
Lusk has been contracted to help run selection campaigns as well as electorate campaigns. Neither his role nor that of Cameron Slater have been transparent.
The prize now is the anti MMP campaign for which resources are now being organised. $100k +.
Lusk is an expert in political “black arts”. He even does reviews on the topic.
My posts have been designed to get Simon Lusk out of the shadows to ensure we know who is running things, if in fact he gets the contract.
