Terry Mills — a politically dead man walking trashes his own brand

Terry Mills is undoubtedly a nice bloke. But in the Northern Territory, as elsewhere, nice isn’t enough and Mills won’t be leading the NT opposition Country Liberal Party at the next general elections due by August 2012.

And his party knows it — as one of his backbenchers told me in Darwin last week, Mills is a political “dead man walking”. That he will be “knocked” is a matter of when, not if.
