    I’ll check out whether Aljaz has anything to say about our change of government.
    Be interesting to see if we get any more lefties and centries posting here soon to balance out the hard lefty the alt righty and the righties.

        I’d love to stick around and gloat about the wise choice that the guy who I voted for just made, but I have to work in 7 hours time. Unlike some others here… 😉

          NZF will win > 20% of the vote. ✖️
          Metiria Turei will win Te Tai Tonga. ✖️
          $1 bet. NZF Green coalition. 🤔 Confidence & supply agreement. Ministerial positions. Are they IN a coalition? Or close but no cigar?

            Close, but not quite ‘cigar worthy’ G. Almost one outta three is better than none. At 5 cents per uptick, I owe you 20. Deal?

      Aljaz tv news
      Yep – brief item on new centre left government for NZ first covered at 2.26 am.
      Video clip featured Jacinda talking about foreign housing ownership ban, & mentioned Winston & NZF being the decider.

      May be more in later bulletins.

        Sorry. Haven’t seen any later bulletins yet. I fell down – on the sofa – due to never sleeping.
        Just come round.
