    Hopefully Labour/Winston disaster with the Greens needed to govern (and who benefited from the Winston hit? From this poll it wasn’t National or Winston). National need timeout for a term in opposition, New Zealanders need to be reminded what a tax and spend govt is like to live under.

    In the media they say a lot of youth are going to vote Labour because Ardern is ‘relatively’ young and a lot of women are flocking to Labour because they think ‘It’s time for another female Prime Minister’ – sort of sums up the political landscape in this country really.

      “In the media” they also say a lot of hogwash. But this certainly is going to put the shits up National.

        Now, if I was Jacinda, I would have some of my brighter advisers working out which people in National might be worth taking on in some minor & maybe even key, but controllable Ministerial positions in a Labour-led coalition government, & then comparing them to the people available in the motley crew – & the government-jinxing record of – the Hon WRP, PC (whichever words you personally like to mentally ascribe to those initials) & thinking about strategies for puttng together a working, sensible coalition. Without necessarily making any promises or letting on that you were doing that – yet. Ministerial once obtained, are a considerable attraction to try & retain.

    The other real possibility now is a Labour/Greens/Maori party govt – a match made in heaven for the left and one that keeps the Winston dog on the porch outside looking in.

    I still think TOPs is the best by far. But this election is tribal.

      Gareth suggested Ardern was the ‘lipstick on the pig’ – a true statement but one the MSM could not abide by considering she is the chosen one. Gareth has much to learn in politics.

    That was a result I was expecting. All the new enrolled voters wouldn’t want a bar of National. They want Climate Change, Trans Gender issues and dealing to Da FIlfy Witch.
    Labour will deliver that to them.

    That said, its really a neck and neck race with more to come.

    I saw Mikey doing an election debate promo on One News. He look liked crap warmed up, he wasn’t himself. Lets hope they haven’t given Bill the poll results.

          I imagine thousands are flocking to the whale’s site for guidance on dealing with senile dementia.

      Exactly…tough choices if you are voting.

      Quite a lot has changed actually – Winston’s ‘king-maker’ position is looking less likely and a Labour/Greens/Maori party grouping is far more likely.

        Hence the hit I talked about on the Maori Party.

        Blazer also probably doesn’t remember that.
