*********

There's a mystery in New Zealand at the moment and it involves slimmed down ACT leader Rodney Hide and his ability to gather enough votes to stay on TVNZ's light entertainment spectacular – Dancing with the Stars. Last evening Mr Hide sent another higher calibre dancer – former Shortland Street star Angela Bloomfield to the nether world of dancing purgatory.

Unfounded rumours surround Mr Hide's tenacity to stay in the show – has one of the ACT party mobile calling battalions that plagued voters prior to last years election gone on a special op – if so does this rogue battalion have orders to 'terminate itself with extreme prejudice' should they ever be discovered.

Another more believable rumour is that forces within the Beehive are straining every sinew in their forearms in an attempt to keep Mr Hide away from Parliament and biffing himself around the Avalon studio floors.

Alternatively the reason Mr Hide remains could have more to do with his dancing partner Krystal Stuart who last evening in an effort to gather a precious few more votes very decently let Mr Hide pull her dress off during the samba – what a gal!
