    I haven't the slightest idea of what Winston will string together, but I am certain of one thing:

    IF it is a NZF+Labour+Greens coalition, then you can bet your life on the Nats going all out to dig up muck and scandal on their opposition.
    If they can get a Turia style of scandal in the papers, and lead to just 3 MPs walking away, then the entire left coalition becomes unstable or entirely broken.

    Personally, I'm betting the muck digging on all the new Labour, Greens MPs started the very day after the election results came in, and anything they've unearthed will be slung at the press whenever it suits the Nats.

    Dead right Paul, and given the Australian Foreign Minister said (prior to the election) she couldn’t work with the NZ Labour Party, because of them trying to help their Australian Comrades to destabilise the Australian Government, doesn’t help.

    As you say Paul, a Labour/NZF/Green government would be hammered the National Dirty Tricks Brigade and frankly Winston is the only one with the experience and nous to handle it.

    How ever it goes, wouldn't be surprised if its a total disorganized mess, with infighting, one wants to do this other wants to do that. As SWMBO said last night, if Winnie goes with National one of the "agreements MAY be" That he's deputy PM. ?? Time will tell.
