The Break Up Of Labour

Here's an Adolfian prediction.

A dozen or so of the saner labour MPs resign from the party and declare themselves to be independent.

They form a new party, whose policies are aimed fair and square at Waitakere Man.  Initial funding is provided by a $5k donation from each MP. The new party has three years in which to gear up for the next election, without being hamstrung by unions, homosexuals, man bans, and other PC paraphernalia.

They gain some 35% of the party vote and become the opposition party.

The Greens decline and only just reach 5%.

National wins the eletion and makes an arrangement with the Maori Party and ACT.

I think if the outcome of the current Labour party leadership massacre is that Cunliffe is somehow left in charge then this could happen Adolf.

I think your 35% target may be way out of whack. Possibly they could aim for 10-15% depending on how many supporters they get. They would be able to aim for votes from the few Labour right wing votes left plus Winnies lot when he retires.

I think they will do better than that. They will pick up the many Labour supporters who were too disillusioned to vote this time, along with those who fled to the Greens and Winston First.

Your probably right, it's hard to see how Labour can recover at this point, and there's room for a party that represents the ordinary working person who doesn't like National.

I'm not sure there is much room for this. National are now centre left and have pinched old Labour's ground. There doesn't seem to be much point of difference in the middle that could really attract a large % of voters.

Their capable people would probably be quite comfortable in a National party line-up.

Dream on! They get cut to ribbons and most of 'em lose the deposit.

Labour right wing voters are all voting for National - because, if you haven't noticed, National's policies are the same as Helen Clark's Labour.

Which part of 63% of Kiwis voted to the RIGHT of Labour don't you understand? The whole point of this election is that there aren't any "ordinary working kiwis" that don't like National!

Nope. Their capable people would be uncomfortable in a National party government because that National party government would be too damn left-wing for them.

Labour sent armed police in to take out Tame Iti.
This election Tame Iti was a candidate - for National.

Labour legalised civil unions. National legalised gay weddings.

Labour paid off the debt. National borrowed sixty billion and are still at it!
