    Come on, these Politicians are stupid! even John Cleese or Micheal Palin could run this country better, and they are only comedy writers.

    I stand corrected. Thanks :-)

    Care to expand on this line of reasoning?

    While hone harawera remains in their ranks, the maori party will not receive another vote from me.

    I don't fancy any of the parties in the house all that much really. Labour? Pass, they don't know diddly about squat, only thing they ever got right was LLU. National? They have tried hard in the recession, I'll give them that, and they started the UFB project, they really are the lesser of several evils, but they're in bed with the Maori party, I have no respect for them because of that.

    Other options; Maori party; pass, they're the biggest bleeps around. Greens; bunch of tree-huggers, couldn't get bleep done if their lives depended on it. ACT/NZ First; maybe. United Future/Progessive; hell no.

    I've decided instead to join the Pirate Party of NZ, which isn't yet a registered party (have to get 500 members), I'll play a wait-and-see game to see which party gets my vote - which will also be my first vote BTW.

    Thought you were a good white boy, why the hell would you vote for them in the first place?! Also, good to see you back, you had your own thread and everything.

    I had my own thread?

    Lol i'm not a white boy, what gave you that idea? I'm actually ngati porou. I teach kapa haka at a marae in kawerau at the weekends. We recently won a competition at the te tii marae, i was pretty proud of the guys. When we got back to the whare, we sang a few waiatas and cooked up a mean hangi. Was tu meke.

    But yeah nah voted maori party in the election last year as i couldn't decide who to vote for. The maori party had safe electorate seats but a very small party vote, and as such was going to cause an overhang. I think 120 MPs is more than enough for nz, so my vote was really to try to reduce the number of politicians.

    I beg to differ. LLU could have been handled better, and from what I understand the rules in place are *so* strict that Telecom can't roll out their ADSL2+ / VDSL2 network sooner due to the fact it has to go live within 90 days of the "set" timeframe, or they get stung with massive fines. Personally, I wouldn't give the Labour party any credit there

    That saying is as old as the hills Chill. People always blame the previous government for the state of the country's finances, whether the Nats or Labour were the previous government at the time.

    Potentially, but there's no need in deliberately making it worse as Goff would, just to make it "easier" on the lower class dole-living families.
