  1. ‘i’m tense and nervous..and i can’t relax’..

  2. AsleepWhileWalking 2

    I hope Labour didn’t just cost the left the election by not joining with the Greens.

    • weka 2.1

      lolz, bit early for that isn’t it?

    • Brendan 2.2

      They’d be stupid to shoot themselves in the foot like that and go back on all the people who voted for a change in government. They can’t ignore a growing political force such as the Green Party. I know dozens, possibly more that voted for them today and in the last two weeks. Even tried and true Labour voters changing to Green. If Labour wants support for its legislative agenda it needs the Greens. Period.

    • Zolan 2.3

      One partial Epsom result looked like, Labour+Green ~= Act-National. Scary.

    • weka 3.1

      are we on premoderation Lynn?

      [lprent: Sorry. That was the backup measure in case the no comment plugin I wrote had issues somewhere. Now turned off. ]

  3. Colonial Viper 4

    Ionisation black out period. Grrrrrr.

  4. BLiP 5

    Is there some simple thing I need to do in order to reply to comments? I’m using an android – latest Samsung with all the bells and whistles – would using another browser do the trick?

  5. Ted Blaikie 6

    It looks like you can appeal to people’s fears or their vision. Looks like the fear thing works better. Depressing isn’t it.

  6. A VOTER 7

    national is rerunning Robt Muldoon the imp boombshell should have been as powerful as the springbok tour protest
    Instead we have failed to recognize the Asian vote which is national and all the people who are profiting off the govt selling our assets and getting undisclosed benefits from the up coming TTPA WHICH IS RUN by Keys mates in Wall St which will turn this country into a default state of the US
    HO HUM
    Whats happened to GODZONE country ? could it get any worse
    Plant a Kauri

    [lprent: I’d suggest learning to plant your words without SHOUTING. ]

  7. locus 8

    tricledown – a few weeks ago you said this:

    “Locus even if Key wins the election he will be in permanent damage control as the privacy commission Ombudsman Electoral Commission Police McCready will all be looking into Keys corrupt govt.”

    Please please let me know what we can do to help this become a reality….
