New Zealand Election Party
 
Hello Fanau! :wave:

Dr Don vs Helen.

Who will win? :hyper:

Bring the Stieneys! It's a waiata bro!

Early votes coming in and it's looking

National 52
+
United Future 3
+
ACT New Zealand 2
= 57

vs

Labor 47
+
Greens 6
+
Jim Anderton's Progressive 1
= 54

New Zealand First = 7
Maori Party = 3

It's looking like a fairly likely National Party will form a minority government with UF, ACT & the supply & confidence support of Winston Peter's New Zealand First.

Awesome. :up:

Ha, I was about to make a thread for this.

PS It's 'whanau'. Let's now confuse the foreigners by talking about Kiwi stuff in Kiwisms. I'm off to check on the NPC results!

All I ask of whoever's elected is that they do not even think of re-establishing the ANZUS treaty with the US until the US comes to us and apologises for its completely juvenile and immature behaviour during Lange's government.

New Zealand was - and is - completely in the right there and I refuse to accept any notion that the onus is on us to renew ties with the US.

Go Don Brash :)

My knowledge of this election has come from reading the group blog silentrunning.tv for the last year or so and Rodney Hide's blog,

HelenLuver :lol:
The news was saying she's getting ready for her third term. I have one question. Was she once a man? :eyebrow:
Irelevant, I know. :shifty: And no, I'm not really serious. I think she has balls and it's admirable that your population have the guts to vote women into such high positions.
:up:

Dr Don really does look strinkingly similar physically to John Howard. Of course the only difference is a distinct backbone. :yes:

She is getting ready for her first time in opposition. :love:

Our second female Prime Minister too (third if you count Michael Moore), probably our first compotent one though...

I know, here I was reading The Age and they did a 'face off' cover on Brash and Clark.

Now for Brash they picked the most Howard-ish picture they could have found, must have photoshopped for extra mendaciousness etc. For Clark it was airbrushed to the point that her hair was one homogeneous smudge. It was pretty damn funny.

Random fact: New Zealand is one of only two countries to have two consecutive female leaders.

Anyone know the second? This has been bothering me for ages.

Also, many of the foreigners here may not know New Zealand was the first country to give women the vote. We just plain rock! :rockon:

Axver 09-17-2005 05:37 AM

Timo, go forth: http://forum.interference.com/t136362.html

You're probably the only person around who wants to talk NPC with me.
