Gone By Lunchtime? ACT Says Brash Should Concede & Resign

Scoop Image: Don Brash,
election night Sept 17 2005.ACT says: "Our advice to Don is to go now before the boys push him." It adds: "National ran a brilliant first past the post campaign. Unfortunately it was MMP. Don Brash is dreaming that he can form a coalition when he has eaten his allies. On the present results a National led government would have to rely on the Maori Party. Not credible. Our advice to Brash is to tell Murray McCully to stop plotting and concede that National cannot form a government even if the specials result in the Greens falling below the threshold."

VIDEO NEWSFLASH: It's Labour – Now The Talking Begins

- While technically the center-right and center-left remain tied on 61 seats each, Winston Peters' promise to support the party with the most seats looks likely to make Labour the Government come Monday morning. While Labour may soon stretch its lead to two over National breaking this deadlock the final result remains in play and up the post count talking. Three parties will now be closely watched. NZ First, The Maori Party and United Future. See... Video: Election05 Helen Clark’s Speech @ Labour HQ

    - Winners n Losers... Former Labour MP John Tamihere spoke perhaps the most humble conceding speech to be found. In contrast, Labour’s Dover Samuels displayed a bitter and troubled rendition. National’s Richard Worth seemed jollied presenting a rather ‘oh well, never mind’ point of view. See... Images: Election Losers Tamihere, Samuels, Worth [1]

    POST ELECTION COMMENT: Dr Alexei Drummond & Ors.

    - thought that we kiwis were different. How foolish of me. It seems that nothing is more universal in politics than the currency of self-interest. Dr Don Brash’s tax cut package and callous disregard for our nation’s founding document appears to have been just the thing that many New Zealander’s had been waiting for. See...

    Barbara Sumner Burstyn Spots A (neo)Con On TV3

    - Does anyone actually watch the TV shows they watch? Medical Investigation (TV3) for example. On the surface this drama looks like just another mildly entertaining medical show. But watch closely and you begin to see the creepy undertones of neoconservative ideology, with its concomitant fundamentalist Christianity, embedded in the storylines and characters. See...

This week at work, I got all the paperwork to fill out. I seem to recall that in New Zealand that would be a form signing up to have my pay put into a bank account, but nothing is that simple in the U.S. of A. See...

    A mouth that prays, a hand that kills— Arabian proverb

    - “How do you find a lion that has swallowed you?” asked Swiss psychologist, Carl Jung, commenting on the moral dilemma posed by the “shadow,” his insightful term for the dark, hidden side of the human psyche. The answer to Jung’s questions is “you can’t find or see that lion”—not as long as you are inside the beast. And therein resides the essential dilemma of a group’s dark side or shadow: it is nearly impossible for those caught inside a group’s belief system to see their own dark side with any clarity or objectivity.

    The First Attack On The Independents: Albanese Hobbles The Crossbench
    It did not take long for the new Australian Labor government to flex its muscle foolishly in response to the large crossbench of independents and small party members of Parliament. Despite promising a new age of transparency and accountability after the election of May 21, one of the first notable acts of the Albanese government was to attack the very people who gave voice to that movement. Dangerously, old party rule, however slim, is again found boneheaded and wanting... More>>

    Dunne Speaks: Roe V. Wade Blindsides National

    Momentum is everything in politics, but it is very fragile. There are times when unexpected actions can produce big shifts and changes in the political landscape. In 2017, for example, the Labour Party appeared headed for another hefty defeat in that year’s election until the abrupt decision of its then leader to step aside just weeks before the election. That decision changed the political landscape and set in train the events which led to Labour being anointed by New Zealand First to form a coalition government just a few weeks later... More>>
