Probably all been said before 'but what a complete waste of time MMP is and always has been, I am sick to death of the tail wagging the dog, and paying the wages of some of the most despised people in this country for doing FA. We have the Maori party on .7% and Hone's party at about the same with act about 1.7% and no doubt the greens about the same or less, lets be honest we can do without these money sucking pricks they are all just part of a expensive failed experiment and a hindrance to the advancement of our economy etc there is no benefit in having them around, I say throw them out on the street and let them get a real job.:mad ;:

Vote Act garman - then at least you'll be supporting the removal of the moari seats which get rid of a few leaches!
I live in a true blue seat that will always go to the Nats. This where MMP actually helps in that it gives me some say at election time, I get half a vote (how democratic is that!).
I'm thinking of voting Act for removal of the moari seats - but will probably vote for Labour so they introduce the CGT. What I'd really like is to be able to vote for both Act and Labour ... Can't do that with MMP or FPTP! (Both are not great systems and are both locked in pre-computer times!)
discl: above is tongue in cheek.
Sadly, voting ACT will still allow the tail to wag the dog. Then, on the other hand voting Labour will be open-house to the Greens who are still living in caves and eating roots.
Heaven forbid a Labour-Green-Maori alliance. We will all be back to using candles, carless days, no foreign currency trading and a longer dole queue.
There is no perfect system but FPP may be the best way forward in the near future.
