A bit late for this

Re Adolf's post below.

My immediate thought reading the article was this: It's a bit late asking for scrutiny on list candidates AFTER the results have come in.
Under MMP the public needs to have the maximum amount of information about candidates on the party list." 
He said the media and parties had failed to give the public as much information as was needed about candidates on the party list. 
"This is lead to all sorts of surprises when minor parties like NZ First bring in large numbers of MPs. Quite often we haven't heard of them until their eccentricities are launched onto the public stage.
Of course.  But complaining about this on September 22 is a bit like saying the washing might get wet after watching the rain piss down and down upon it.

I don't have any problem with this fellow. What the hell does it matter if he's a prison officer or a tax collector?

Agree. But my point is don't ask the bloody question after he's elected and when we don't have the chane to vote for him.
