Where To Northland?

By 2017 the good people of Northland will realise they have been taken for the drongos they are.

I wonder if we will see Peters quietly slope off somewhere else and install Shane Jones as the NZ1st candidate for Northland at the next election?

I reckon he would turn it into a safe NZ1st seat.

Yep, the voters are drongos. Is that official National Party policy now? I hope that works out for you.

15000 of them then. Wow and at least 4500 were Nats. Clearly you think a lot of voters. Too much of Findlayson's attitude of do as we say.
Parliament is a House of Representatives, not an office of Corporate Key and co.
Get used to more if you don't change your attitudes.

Two points. It took Winston just 24 hours to acknowledge that his commitment to expand Port facilities in Whangarei might not happen (funny that) and a further 24 hours to admit that his musings that NZF was considering not bringing in another List MP to replace Winston were just that ... musings.

Two days, two backflips. That has to be a record even for Winston.

Howie said...

Two irrelevant points. That's all right though, the voters are stupid now, right?

The Veteran said...

Howie ... what's irrelevant? The fact that Peters bullshits? and no, the voters are never stupid. Someone (I think it was Mike Moore) once said 'the voters are right even when they're wrong' ... I agree with that.

"the voters are never stupid."

That's not what the author of this post has said repeatedly. You guys should get your story straight. Are they drongos or not?

IMHO one of the reasons for National's disastrous defeat in Northland was the way the two main candidates dressed. Peters, always perfectly, tie and jacket. The Nat bloke, well, just slovenly.

Why has whaleoil joined the 'left' on the blogroll?

Does this reflect a rightward shift in NM's editorial outlook?

Have you read Whaleoil in the last few months?

Whaleoil *boof* *smack* *ouch* is hoping to influence the Nats in order to get Statler and Waldorf reinstated to their former glory in the caucus.

NZ1st led by Shane Jones would make a very comfortable coalition partner for the Gnats.

Minister for Primary Industry?

Wouldn't that just make Bryce Edwards spew?

Paulus said...

Re Whale Oil - he has nastily turned against the National Government - really Key, and whilst he did not really cosy to them, he now feels neglected by losing so many friends with his recent diatribes - his bum boy keeps banning people when they comments as such.
Pity he once was good to look at but now as I am banned for really nothing but disagreeing with them, I no longer bother.
