This has been an incredible year for the National Party.

Will it implode publicly tonight with a series of attacks on the leadership and campaign by disgruntled MPs or will Judith perform better than expected and minimise the carnage.

This post is to follow National’s leadership and MP response to election night results.

Stay tuned …

  1. Brownlee in trouble. Might need a new deputy on Monday, regardless of a coup.

    I don’t know where to start 🙁

    Simon Bridges was looking miserable when talking to John Campbell on TV1. Campbell was merciless and Bridges came awfully close to outright blaming Judith Collins on live TV for the Nat disaster. He must be incredibly bitter

      He has every right to be. As awkward, dorky and slightly hopeless as Soimun Brudges was as leader, he was nowhere near the raging dumpster fire that is Judith Collins. Their loss, had he been retained, would be nowhere near as catastrophic. Given the National Party's penchant for self-mutilation and their intolerance of failure, it's fair to say the knives are being sharpened for 'The Crusher'. Everyone will deny it of course, but they're not terribly forgiving at the best of times.

      On a positive note, no more Nick Smith and Gerry Brownlee. National waterways and the city of Christchurch can both heave a collective sigh of relief.

    Judith is about to concede. She has guts, give her that

  5. roblogic 5

    She's claiming that Labour has ruined the economy & we are in a worse state than other OECD countries. Nats are still clinging to self delusion I see.

    Nikki Kaye claims that National did a better job on policy than anyone! 🤣🙄

    Bwahahaaaa 6 bullet points on a napkin assembled after a night on the whiskey

  7. roblogic 7

    Judith said "we'll be back" ominously as her last word. I give it 6 weeks max before she's rolled

    Farrar watch:

    David is bent on splitting advanced voting and election day voting because it shows numbers on the day which sort of benefit the right. It's like 'we would have won if it weren't for advanced voting!'

    Watch for him to push for the cancellation of advance voting in the days, months, and years to come.

    Another thing. Can all the nutty RWNJ media like Young, Garner and seemingly a million others take the fucking day off tomorrow?

    Got to feel for Labour's Emily Henderson with a hard battle against Shane Reti in Whangerei. Just a 152 vote loss and misses out by 1 place on the party list too.
    The party vote in Whangerei went to Labour too by a massive margin, near 7500 votes ahead. Strange things happen under MMP.
