That’s a lot of unemployed National MP’s. Only Bill English really knows how Simon Bridges is feeling about now. Shame nobody wants to take the job off him.
Jacinda Ardern and her cabinet, MP’s and staff should take the credit. Over 90% of Kiwis approve the Covid 19 strategy. The communication and delivery of our response has been world class.
Bad news for NZ First. There’s still a chance that some of the lost Tory vote will come their way. If I’m correct that the PM would be wise to keep them in the tent to help guarantee a third term, then some conservative voters might look to Winston to be the opposition within the Government.
But that’s a slim chance.
For now, lets just bask in the glory that is finally burying the claim that John Key was our most popular PM.
I never thought he was, and now he ain’t.
EDIT: There’s still hope, righties:
