    Added to my favourites. Let’s hope it lasts, this is a sector of politics utterly ignored elsewhere.

    It’s that old conundrum… if a party’s policies aren’t worth reporting because they’re not in Parliament, then how will they ever get the chance to get to Parliament to advocate them?

    Another flaw in MMP, IMHO… it presupposes an open marketplace of ideas, where minor parties have a reasonable chance to sell their wares.
