GOOD GOVERNMENT DODGED A BULLET IN ROSKILL !

Mr Little won and I for one am happy about that but a word of caution Mr Eight Percent, Mr Woods scored less than 25% of the votes so that really only ties into your party's current polling and looks pretty dam successful until you recall the fact that your MOU mates stood aside so perhaps it was not the "landslide" your other mates in the media party are hailing.  

I understand that your on the ground effort was up there and the other mob made another effort commensurate with the oh so successful Northland disaster.

That said you have finally experienced an election victory, but if you think getting a towering political figure as represented by Mr Woods  finally making it in a "safe" seat on your diminishing by the day team red,  a rethink might be a go. Then again perhaps it is going so well for the country maybe don't change anything.

With the Greens not standing in Ohariu Dunne is in shit street.

It appears that the ex Police Union man with good tv presence will win well.

I don't mind Dunne getting shafted but another Unionist in Parliament !

The Nats and Dunne will split the vote and let Labour in easily.

And what proportion did Ms Parma score? 25% can look a lot like a "landslide" if the opponent was on 9% or so.

Goff replaced by yet another plonker who has no experience in the real world. All of his work experience has been either Union or Political and he has never been in the position of having to make money or lose your job. Just shows what a bunch of losers the Left are.

Tories are feeling a wee bit butt-hurt today obviously. Sore losers to a man.

I live in Mt Roskill and I hate to say it but Labour deserved the win. They visited my street during the campaign, they had hoardings everywhere, there were flyers in the letterbox at least once a week, and on polling day they came to my door twice to get out the vote. National? A few hoardings, one flyer, and never seen on my street.

This, of course, must be tempered with a few realities for Labour:
1) Roskill is one of their strongholds
2) Governments never win by-elections
3) Their finances cant possibly sustain that level of effort on a national level

National's strategy worked a treat then.
