Former Auckland Mayor and former National MP John Banks is now the ACT candidate for Epsom.
He'll probably win the seat if the Nats don't put up a strong candidate to oust him.
My completely uninformed guess is that the Nats won't make a particular effort to win Epsom, now they will have someone in ACT they can work with. Don Brash may be offensive to the public (his polling is very poor for a new leader), but Banks doesn't carry the same baggage and has a strong network of supporters in the affluent eastern suburbs of Auckland.
On current polling ACT may get only three MPs in the next parliament, meaning Brash, Banks and one other. Probably not the hard-working Heather Roy, and probably not Hilary Calvert (who could best be described as "eccentric"), because Brash's past record suggests he is not keen on having too many women in positions of responsibility. So they'll probably choose Boscawen, or perhaps they'll resurrect another dinosaur, or find another crypt to crack open.
Anyway, it's good to finally see rich elderly white men getting a chance. They've had it rough these last few years.
