Feigning normality since 1973

It's election year!

Filed in: Tetrap.Local.

At least here in New Zealand it is. So what are the political polls saying at the moment as regards the political mood?

"Well, sure, under National our troops hand Afghan prisoners over to known torturers, our economy is on the verge of collapse, and John Key takes personal rides in Air Force helicopters at the taxpayers expense, but that Phil Goff fellow is a bit boring, so I'm voting National!"

I note that Labour have done little to capitalise on the situation, what with their own petty infighting and midnight antics. If NZ wasn't so set into the 2-party system and we had a third party which wasn't just a one-man party or one-issue party, we might have an alternative.

I have my own pet theory about Labour - given that they can probably see there is a lot more political unpleasentness and belt tightening to come, is their current performance with Phill the disaster it seems, or a cunningly designed ploy not to win...

On the other hand, a new party has emerged!
