    - No plan to get there. Thought I'd vote while out doing odd jobs. Don't know if I got to the closest booth

    I hope my vote doesn't get cancelled.
    well done. That seems like a big mission. Went for a morning run this morning, drove out of the driveway and cripes, not 50 metres away is a sign saying vote with an arrow pointing. Did not know it was going to be that easy, may have voted today rather than earlier.

    "IM LEAVING POLITICS",COLEMAN REFUSES TO DISCUSS HOSPITAL MOULD
    More than a coincidence Coleman going now?, not by the way he responded and hung up. Lack of maintenance under his watch?

    "Surely a prominent politician couldn’t be that gullible, dumb, or unethical. That would be beyond the bounds of plausibility. Sounds like fake news."

    This is a new low for Collins, a whaleoil type tactic imo. She has just cemented herself in history as never ever being more than a brief pop up leader at best..

    Unlike you to jump to conclusions JT. You're normally more unbiased

    Good, its time for Bridges to go. He is as useful as tits on a bull.

    Suppose it could be Collins esp after that fake news bit she attached to Jacindas name(a few posts above) which was the sign of a bored person fiddling , messing around, someone with nothing left to lose who doesn't want to just stay on the opposition benches "keeping the govt honest and to account". She knows she has no future as leader and that the national party is in the wilderness for a long time. A person like that would want to be eventually found so that they could find the exit. If there is illness that would make for a sad ending to a very entertaining woman.

    Then again Collins would never call Bridges a bully,lol even if she was in a mental state, could be Paula. If anyone does need help i hope they get it fast.

    Wasn't his to call off. And if he had then the left would be screaming form the roof tops.

    Mallard made the call as he set it up.

    As I said, you guys would have had field day if he had done it. "whats he trying to hide" etc

    The person to call off anything is the person who set it up in the first place. Not difficult JT.

    Comment: Timing of MP's departure raises questions

    "Jami-Lee Ross is among a handful of National MPs who have been quietly suspected as a potential leaker among colleagues for some time."

    Interesting conjectures from the Spinoff

    The next few weeks may decide the fate of Simon Bridges


    "There’s no pressing need for his caucus to roll their leader; the party’s overall poll numbers are, reportedly, stable. But didn’t Paula Bennett do surprisingly well in that press conference? Judith Collins has been getting good cut-through: maybe she’d win votes with all these culture-war issues? Or, what if National parachuted some high-profile CEO into Parliament via a by-election in the safe seat of soon-to-be-former Botany MP Jami-Lee Ross and they became the next John Key? So many intriguing options for National’s caucus and strategists!"
