    Default National - FFS!

    Got home to the mail today and got a wee letter from Bill. Inside was a card.
    MAKE A PLAN
    Are you / your family enrolled yet?
    Do you know where tour local poling booth is and when it is open
    How do you plan to get to your nearest voting booth?
    What time will you going ot vote.'

    Am I such an imbecile I need you to help me make a plan to vote. FFS, if national is relying on people with this kind of problem solving ability I'd sooner vote for Stalin.

    It better not be my bloody taxes paying for this!

    I hope I voted right - didn't follow the plan. Didn't make a plan.
    - presumed I was enrolled as I got a letter with a card on it. Perhaps I should have checked.
    - No idea where my local polling booth was. Just left home this morning and winged it. Amazing - turned out the driveway and there was a sign pointing to one.
    - No plan to get there. Thought I'd vote while out doing odd jobs. Don't know if I got to the closest booth
    - Didn't plan the time either. Just went out.

    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.

    Its a bit of an aside but I ma just setting up computers so I can watch the lection tonight. Laptop on wireless is streaming 4 seconds faster than computer on Ethernet cable. If I knw h to bet I think I would rely on wireless. All the activity seems to be focussing on one party on Betfair. Not much interest in the other one. Edit - another party has just entered the list

    "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.
