Workout routines and abuses of energy from Blue blood they’re usually very imply, though Collins, true to type, managed to make everybody round her depressing. It’s a ebook of unhappiness. Nobody achieves greatness. Nobody retains any dignity. Few had from the start; Hamilton East MP David Bennett seems all through the ebook as a villain, chastised by Key for “alleged late night time antics within the third ground bar of the Beehive”, dismissed as a idiot by Chris Finlayson and caught answering to a constituent who urged the celebration to roll Bridges, “Sure, we’re engaged on it.” Assistants and sources and workers and even named folks toil within the background, pushed mad by their masters. There dives Matthew Hooton, Muller’s blundering amanuensis; there sighs Janet Wilson, who has gone to work for Collins and foolishly provided him the very factor Collins at all times loathed: good recommendation. All of the whereas, the vultures within the Press Gallery hold their eyes peeled for what they need most in life: a scalp.”
