    Default Well what is the consensus of what the new Government will look like?

    A lively debate yesterday between some mates, of various political persuasions, whilst they were doing quality Control on the contents of my liquor cabinet, raised some interesting scenarios.

    For what itís worth, my contribution was that if I were Jacinda, I would go to Winston and tell him that I would have no problem with him being Prime Minister on the proviso he stepped down prior to the next election and either retired or swapped places.

    I would tell him I felt I was a bit young and inexperienced to be Prime Minister but would be happy to finish my apprenticeship under him. (figuratively speaking)

    This would tick a lot of boxís.

    He would go down in history as having been a Prime Minister and the first Maori Prime Minister as Muldoon once predicted.

    It would serve absolute Utu on National for their many wrongs.

    And it would make negotiations for Labour on so many other matters so much easier.

    I must say I didnít get overwhelming support from the mates but it made them thirstier.

    The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

    I have to say that is an inspired idea.

    My bet is that the new Gov't will look like a bunch of dorks, and will act accordingly (after raising parliamentary pensions of course).

    If it's a Labour combo government then it will be the first time the opposition has more elected members than the government, meaning electorate wins. All greens and NZF are list MPs and along with a few Labour MPs make up the majority.

    I don't see the point of your post, we have an MMP system, electorates are barely relevant.
