Interesting to see Genter rated ahead of Shaw. She will have tough competition to become the new Green (female) co-leader.

    Sage is a done deal for co leader.

    • What about Davidson? She jumped the pack to two on the Green list.

        Top Labour MPs. Presuming Damien’s rating is 6 from place in list.

    • Looks like Julie Anne is ‘leading the field’ 🙂

        If it comes down to the eyes, & she gets angry – the others will withdraw immediately she looks at them, imo.

    About 2,600,000 party votes and 13,000 of them to Act. I won’t be bothered at reading the ratings article it’s clear that on any scale they have to be the top rating.
    It would be sensible to rate them as top for 2018 too. Economy of time and effort for maximum effect and result and all that.

        Act is brilliant! Act is marvellous. Act got 13,000 out of 2,600,000 party votes. Let’s make them the top rating lot every year. 😊

          I’m not as keen on this idea as Trans Tasman & you are, must admit. 😕

    The views of Trans-Tasman are not worth a jot.

      Line 5 of the article (starting with the title as line 1) show that.😊

    10.19 pm here in Auckland, balmy 21C, clear sky, the moon is blazing NE at altitude of only 13 degrees, but looks plenty high enough in sky, reflecting in the Waitemata Harbour.
