Steven Joyce gone

Well, the relics of the Key-English era are leaving in droves.

This time, former finance minister and National campaign manager Steven Joyce has left. 

His departure comes at an interesting time, after losing the leadership election reportedly being denied the finance role by Bridges.

Sour grapes?

In any case, with both him and English gone, there is a big hole of experience in the ranks.

National leader Simon Bridges will probably try to say that this is a good thing, allowing new faces to push through and accelerate the “generational change” he has been talking about.

But in any case scenario, two experienced faces are gone from the National, wounding them.

And how they respond remains to be seen.
