Everyone of them knew that as time went by they'd get a little bit older and a litter slower (The Beatles)

To paraphrase Paul McCartney, New Zealand, you are tremendous and no one knows like me (sarcasm).

What a joke. What a bunch of dithering turkeys we are.

Thanks to our inability to support either of the main political parties we are left with the smug narcissism of Winston Peters in government for the foreseeable future.

In case you haven't been keeping up in the back, we voted on Saturday and came up result. 

Neither the stodgy Bill English or the probably too youthful Jacinda Ardern could get enough seats for their respective parties to govern alone.

Which leaves the only certainty of NZ First leader Winston Peters in a government. OMG.

What an irony - we northlanders voted him out of his constituent seat! But we're stuck with him.

The only bright spot - his perculating botched old boy allegiance with National (my prediction) will clear the way for some dynamism with Jacinda Ardern getting a clear majority in the next election. 

Coming soon to a theatre near you!
