Brash reaches National Party summit

Just 15 months after leaving the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, ex-governor Don Brash has just been appointed head of the NZ opposition. Bill English got the boot in a secret ballot after two failed election attempts to oust Helen Clark's Labour Party from government, the New Zealand Herald said. With the National Party way down in the polls the job may prove something of a poisoned chalice, but the next election is not scheduled till 2005 so Brash has time to turn things around.
