    Something wrong when the Leader of the Oppositions salary and benefits package doesn't extend to a decent home internet connection. Sparks coverage map shows Tauranga central (where the National electorate office is) has excellent 4g coverage, so he could safely work from there.
    it's not a bad thing till you throw a KLR into the mix.

    Yeah, typical politician spin.

    Good reading, the time span to judge the transition over is a bit short though.

    I'm concerned with legalising dope before we have an effective and easy way of testing for it in a workplace setting. The old "glassy eyed and lethargic" stereotype doesn't hold true for all, nor will it stand up in court
    If the words I say offend you, imagine the ones I keep to myself...

    Toss a coin to decide. You will make no difference, apart from a few deluded people wasting their vote on someone making promises that will never be kept.

    You really are at the bottom of the barrel eh, coz that really makes no sense. You won;t make a difference because you won't get there to make a difference on the basis that no one will vote for you to not keep promises that you can't keep because you never got to a place where they could be executed.

    If they are not glassy eyed and lethargic or otherwise impaired in such a way that they cannot do a job safely what do you need to test for? I thought that it was generally understood that cannabis can stay in your system at measurable levels long after it has any effect on your abilities?

    I'm thinking they should rush the legislation through so that after the lockdown Griffin's and Arnott's can get a head start and Domino's can employ the gazillion drivers they will need, shovel ready and all that.

    Comprehension isn't your strong point either.
    Go and find an electorate to stand in, and get another 50 votes from the "easily deluded" of the community.

    One school of thought would be to let Mr Bridges contest the election anyway - if National loses roll him.

    The problem though for a large chunk of the caucus is that could bring their political careers to an abrupt end if they're in a marginal seat, or have a low list placing.
    The other consideration is the imminent arrival of Chris Luxon into the caucus, if - as expected - he takes Botany, there may not be a clear run at the leadership for those who fancy their chances now.

    Leaked UMR poll: National under 30%, Labour at 55%
    UMr is the poll that Labour does
    but its backed by the leaked results of Nationals own (Curia) polling
    which was National 31% Labour 49% carried ou in April.

    Think prob a lot of natural support for governing party during time of disaster. Crusher Collins is obvious choice to roll bridges at eliminate the women vote factor that Jacinda rode in on.
    She’s big on law and order which people will be clamouring for. Theft and crime is going to rise after people start feeling the pinch in post lockdown depression.
    Here in Napier it’s been a safe labour seat for awhile but people here really pissed at the weak govt response (not the police there doing great with limited tools) to multiple gang shootouts at medical centre and McD’s when our MP is police minister.
    Once people get a proper reaming from the taxes to pay for Covid money drop there will be swing to right.
    Jacindas coalition partners have done their dash, Ive long liked Winston but he’s toasted himself and the greens are now irrelevant, we just won’t be able to afford their nonsense ideas that need massive public money to possible work
    Failing to take corners and life seriously since 197X
