I always love reading the 100 Word Blog
. So few words and such a high degree of clarity. Richard has surpassed himself with this post
. All I can say is ouch!, ask to reproduce it, and extend its readership. It is quoted below in full as per usual.
Minnow Party post election round up
While the Christian parties had 1996 to give them hope, most knew they had no chance. While the Libertarianz and the Workers’ Party would be happy just to stand by their ideals, you have to wonder why the Alliance doesn’t just join Labour or the Greens or why the Marxists of RAM are so coy about their politics.
And then there’s the sheer embarrassment of the results
. Having poured their efforts into Mangere
, the Family Party gained only 856 votes
. RAM claims 3,000 members
but the overwhelming majority didn’t vote for them, they only received 405 votes.
