I'm shocked to hear that Rod Donald died of a heart attack last night. He was, I think, the most reasonable man in parliament and his death has dealt a blow to the Green Party. I had the pleasure to speak with him on the phone on two occasions and found him endearingly jocular and, basically, a decent man.
Considering how she gave the Greens the flick, I think it's a bit rich that Helen Clark on National Radio said parliament needed more politicians like Mr Donald.
