It must be fun to be media (not). Just watched the “waiting for Winston Peters” live feed from Stuff. It sounds like the NZ First board know what they want and now there will be a bit more negotiation with both major parties to get closer to what the NZF board were after. They are heading back home leaving the politicians to finish up.
Winston Peters had that look of a long hard meeting that he needs a bit of downtime from.
Looks to me like there will be some discussions with the two major parties – but probably tomorrow.
No real story tonight for the media. However I’m sure that they will invent one…
I definitely prefer cutting code. A much more creative task.

Now down to the real business of forming the next government.
After two days of silence, NZ First leader Winston Peters met up in secret with Bill English and Jacinda Ardern for one on one meetings in the same room where he and his negotiating team eye balled the National and Labour leaders last week.
Only this time it was just Peters in the room, talking to first English, then Ardern, one after another.
