  • Massive shift to labor - what does it mean?

    I wonder... did all those people who deserted Auckland because they couldn't afford a house, end up in all those electorates that went red?

    Seems that way, unfortunately National are looking like a greedy bunch of business people and investors at the moment. Until they change that their in trouble.

      There is really no choice at the moment... the reality is the country voted for Jacinda (not Labor - people didn't really vote for Twitford/Clarke/Davis did they?) What is even more alarming is that these guys won their respective seats which shows you that the alternative is unpalatable.

      National MP's in the main are untested or out of date and with PR opportunities kneeling in church has to make you wonder who is really making the decisions at National HQ

      If I was in the seat of queen or queen maker I'd probably have the Beehive boarded up and send the lot of them home for 3 years and look for new submissions for 2023

        Landslide to incumbent in NZ... Labor

        In Aus media they're saying potential for landslide for incumbent in Aus - Liberal/National

        Maybe pandemic politics where a leader has done a reasonable job navigating the turbulence is about status quo

          Personality politics?
          That seems likely.
          Also, Labour showed itself as capable, by being able to handle two complicated practical events well.

          But here's a question for you.
          Say you were voting for ideas, rather than personal integrity..

          In five words, what was Winston's angle?
          " Free stuff for grey power"?

          Because, when I was standing in front of that ballot paper, I didn't know any of the tag lines for any of the parties ,
          I found myself reaching into "what would be good for me and who could I trust".

          So, what were the tag lines of the parties?

            Odd? Or Not?

            Gossip has it that the 'rural vote' went the comrade socialist Cindy to prevent the watermelon party from being guaranteed a place in gummint.

              What, so they made their own tag line?

              Vote Maroon, block the Farm Killers?

              Ha, that's quite nice actually.

                Hey, but isn't it brilliant to have a chap in a full tribal face tattoo and a cowboy hat in parliament?
                New Zealand rocks.
                I wonder if he's going to wear a Texas type suit with it, or go full Brioni.

                I'd suggest a Farmer's suit, so as not to alienate his electorate.

                  It will be interesting to see who gets Housing, in the cabinet reshuffle.
