I haven't checked the state of play of things ever since I jumped ship from Dart and had to make a choice between Internode and iiNet, but at the time, both of the two were working to establish their own non-Telstra infrastructure.

Actually, I like their policies on transportation.

Shame I can't even come close to agreeing with them on other issues.

Edit: By the way, Greens have 6 seats now. Wow, this is mightily close! Labour leading by a single seat.

I truly can't believe how close this is! I wonder, though - will National be able to get enough support from minor parties to form a coalition government?

Winston said he would support whoever got the most seats, but thats what he said. He could switch.

Peter Dunne's UFNZ said the same thing. But wont sit in a coalition with the Greens... so everything is not lost for the Nats but I'm not holding my breath.

Interesting ... ... well, at least my area was a safe Labour one. The results amuse me:

Republic of NZ Party: 2 votes
OneNZ: 5
Direct Democratic Party: 8
Total votes: 28,948

Interesting.

If not now then perhaps next time around ~ incumbent government is only going to get more stale.
