Greens & Labour discover MMP


If you’ve wondered how the National Party has managed nearly three full terms of government despite doing nothing a ruling Labour Government would also have done, one reason is that Her Majesty’s Opposition is so inept.

Case in point: MMP has now been in operation in this country for the last seven elections. Seven. And both leading opposition parties agitated for its introduction. Yet after three crushing defeats by the Blue Team these mental giants have only just now discovered they should work together to defeat National.

No, you’re right. You can’t make this stuff up.



  1. In 2008 National only won with the help of ACT. in 2011 National barely held on against Goff - less than 10,000 votes in the Christchurch suburbs. Even Cunliffe kept National to a very slim majority needing ACT & Maori & Dunne to govern.

    NZ remains a badly-governed communist country. Returning to FPP and a property qualification is the only hope to restore some measure of sanity and sense.

    1. Yep. No welfare vote either - if you only drain the coffers you don't get a say in how much you can.
