Election Time?


The government has made a surprise move tonight, putting into urgency its plans to pass bills it wants before the election.
Remember, the precious ETS has just been passed.
The move was unexpected and gives the impression the Government is preparing for the possibility of political instability in the wake of ongoing controversy over New Zealand First.
Indeed, considering Winston's unconvincing performance tonight, he looks set for the chop tomorrow.
But what will Winston do then? What revenge might he seek? Does he have dirt on Dear Leader, possibly explaining why she has kept faith in him for so long?
Might it be enough for Uncle Helen to call an election , perhap even tomorrow, to try and take attention from the SFO inquiry into Peters and away from the SFO she intended to scrap?
Is the game up for Liarbour and is it now a case of damage limitation?
When are the next polls due? TV1 on Sunday?

Hope so! How exciting it will be, who would have expected all this three years ago? Labour have no real mandate to be in power now, anyway...

Is Clark really working for the Cylons? Was it her on the grassy knoll? Will she try and evade the looming charges that she, not John Demyanyuk, was "Ivan the Terrible?"

Indeed, doesn't everyone know that mandates to govern rest on what right-wing bloggers think should have happened?

Actually, if we accept anonymous fascist's blather about donations to political parties by businessmen equating to "buying the election," no NZ govt has ever had a mandate to be in power, and none ever will.

I wonder if she's just had enough and wants a nice 9-5 job in New York or Geneva?

No. the should vote on the democratic choice of hard-working kiwis. And in 2005 (and probably 2002) that choice was for a National/ACT coalition.

MMP. Maorimander. EFA. KFC. oh - Owen Glenn's money.

That's why hardworking taxpaying kiwi's choice was corruptly rorted to give us 9 years of labour.

Well, the choice of 40.61% of the voters, anyway. You're the one always quacking on about others being no good at maths - so "do the math!"
