And I guess there is another 12 hours of that.
Some random thoughts:
The MSM have successfully made the campaign "their" news, pity about any voter actually seeking information as to policy and the costs that will fall on the dwindling number of wealth contributors.
That some in the Media have succeeded in resurrecting the corpse of Winston First without reminding voters of all the crap he delivered under the cloak of protection of the last Labour Government, is an indictment on their professionalism.
Where's Hager, or will he lob a grenade into the campaign today. A bit late for the book though.
Am I in a minority that thinks the cost of the circus coalition that will bring Goff to PM will make Greece look like the epitome of stability.
If Labour's vote reflects the polls, will any chance of meaningful rebuilding that once proud party be set back 3 more years.
Will ACT rise from the conflagration that Brash ignited with his "last hurrah" with anything resembling a party to the right of National or will that space become the opportunity for Craig and his "fundy" clingons. Gordon f#*king Copeland FFS.
Should the release of Polls be proscribed in the closing days of an election.
Likewise any reality TV effects such as audience polls and worms et al associated with "TV Debates". This manifestation of communicating the message has become the ultimate political infotainment
Should an independent entity be charged with costing of major policy initiatives to increase awareness of potential outcomes among voters becoming increasingly disconnected.
Is the electorate being well served by the ongoing union parallel campaigning.
Do current campaign finance rules create tilted playing fields when manpower is uncounted but finance to purchase such effort is severely curtailed.
Should we have also been polled as to the parliamentary term along with MMP.
Will we ever see the likes of an Oliver Ridell or Hugh Templeton who gave little hint of their Political Hue as they penned their analysis of the political landscape, portraying the reality of what the situation was with little projection of their opinion, again. Probably never as Tabloid Journalism becomes the norm.
Sainsbury, Campbell, Garner, Gower, Soper, Holmes, Espiner, Mutch, Clifton, are all as shallow as a puddle on a runway with their Image driven egotistical approach as to what they see as Political reporting, and that is without their ill-disguised bias.
The sun will still rise on Sunday and we will still hold the Webb Ellis Trophy.
Please no comments after Midnight to comply with electoral law.
Have a great election and be careful what you wish for.
