Quote of the week from John Armstrong:
Key’s mischievous matchmaking, however, has him defining the election as a contest between a forward-looking National Party versus a rearwards-looking Labour Party beholden to the whims of NZ First.
In short, Key’s not-so-subtle pitch is one of stability versus chaos. New Zealand, you choose.
This is what I said yesterday – ruling out Peters gives voter, not the would-be king maker, the power.
Lindsay Mitchell made a a similar point in honest John vs perfidious Peters.
