    It's starting to look like 1974.

    If Labour voters thinks that the balance of power in government has tilted too far in favour of NZF, then they can switch to National If they think National in government would be more likely to introduce Labour Party type policies....
    Obviously when there are none of your achievable policy goals in a political agreement you sign, you have no principles in politics. That's how I see our PM, she doesn't stand for anything.
    Duncan Garner sums it up well here : https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/pol...itical-capital

I do note when she announced dropping CGT , her statement also included the environmental taxes the TWG recommended. Certainly nothing has happened yet, after 18 months in Government.
    Mr Jones is going to have a whole lot of trouble spending his re-election fund, especially now the OAG is watching. I expect to see big bucks tipped into the 'nuclear moment' black hole.

    The Opposition is also watching, mostly keeping its power dry atm.

    Not that I'm aware of, but you do wonder who's got the little Black Book. . .
