Reference Number: DCDL-0002720

A large Christmas turkey with Don Brash's head and wearing lace-up shoes marches past a man who is standing under a tree beside a chopping block, The man is fingering the sharp edge of a large axe. The turkey looks wildly round in all directions trying to gauge where the next blow will come from. There are only 32 chopping days left until Christmas and so he feels that his chances of surviving are slim. Refers to Don Brash's resignation in response to a bloodless coup and in the face of the publication of Nicky Hager's book, 'The Hollow men'.
