With Radio Sport fading in and out and for something to do 'Mems' and I decided to count the number of election hordings each Party had erected along the way - Ok, bit like pulling wings off flies but what the hell. The result .....
National - 139
Labour - 62
Greens - 27
Winston First -21
ACT - 22
Conservatives - 11
Mana - 13
Democrats for Social Credit (thought they were long gone) - 4
United Future - Zip, zero, nothing
As I said, totally unscientific as a guide to the election result but it does indicate the relative organisational strengths of each Party and a Party with a strong organisational base is more likely to hold to account their parliamentary wing.
