Democracy demands Honesty.

The threatened, whether it is themselves, their Party, or their dream, are increasingly railing against the sanity being openly expressed as the significance of Vote splitting is better understood.

Yes Sanity, even Hatfield and his advisors used the theory of vote splitting when they Promoted a vote for the thug got them both him and Kelvin Davis.

As the strategy of getting Banks as the electorate MP to secure the ACT votes, Peters must have been very upset in 2008 when his 4% was worth nothing while ACTs 4% earned 5 MPs, and the honest tactic of supporting Dunny in Ohariu are being revealed, it is just sanity being employed.

Likewise the "Would be if He could be" Emperor of the Labour Party who was palpably upset when his seemingly stupid effort to create an electorate seat power base seemed to be seriously undermined in New Plymouth, should just accept he may just have indulged in the biggest kirkup since Dunfuck.

Lately I have read an increasing number of comments where Labour Voters, (their description, and with the proclivity of socialists to lie, grain of salt territory), who are claiming they will put a peg on their nose and vote Labour again. Their justification, "they don't want National to win big".
Bollocks, they know their tribal seat warmers are rubbish being led to the cliff by the ranking Lemming and instead of telling the braindead that they should just bugger off and let renewal take root, they will soften the blow and risk making the disaster bigger and more debilitating.

Whatever system is used, however gerrymandered the electorates are, however incompetent the candidates presented by the party are and whatever the issues might be DEMOCRACY demands complete honesty when the VOTE is marked.
If the current system promotes a better outcome for ones vote by splitting then thats the game, so stop crying foul when a stupid system is used to frustrate your dreams.

Honesty? In anything to do with politics? Yeah, right.

Also an apt description of National voters ca 2002. Net result, we still have National Party dead wood from the 1990s around the cabinet table. No doubt the Labour deadwoods are picturing themselves as the Maurice Williamsons, Murray McCullys, Nick Smiths and Tony Ryalls of the future.

The problem Labour has is that there are a hell of a lot more of them.

Not too bad a result for a bit of deadwood in Mr Ryall's case. I doubt too many Health Department drones think he no longer breathes.

Adolf - I would think his shirts, ties and suits would scare the hell out of them.

Agreed Milt it will be interesting if John Key is still in charge on the 27th November, whether he will send the first three to the back benches and bring some of what I see as considerable talent forward as part of the reinvigoration of his party.
Tony Ryall, I see as still having value but Nick Smith, Williamson and McCully are going to become embarrassing and should be given the message. They have reached their maximum as contributors going forward.
