Pundit election quiz

Pundit has designed an election quiz to help people decide how to vote, or confirm for those who’ve already made up their minds whether or not their beliefs fit the policy of their preferred party .

I came out with a 76% fit for National and a similar one for Act.

To my horror I also got a 65% fit with New Zealand First but I was reassured when I worked out that anything we have in common can’t compensate for how strongly I oppose the matters on which we differ.

It would be impossible to find a party whose policy is 100% fit with your own views. But I think it was Sir Keith Holyoake who said that he was 100% behind 60% of his party’s views, there were about 30% that he was less enthusiastic about but they weren’t die-in-a-ditch matters and given that he could live with agreeing to disagree over the other 10%.

    84% Act for me, only 70% for the Nats.

    Thankfully Winston First was no where to be seen on my results.

    I wouldn’t be too worried about a 65% match with Winnie HP, the duplicitous bastard writes up whatever he thinks sounds good and sails on with total disregard anyway.

    His policy on the ETS is a classic example vs. what he voted for is a classic example.

    You must have been horrified. You should have been 135pc, at a minimum.

    Bang goes your hopes of a quangoship!

    Poneke, as a parent you’ll kow that if you bring your children up to be independent you have to accept they might not always agree with you.

    Politics is similar so a party which encourages independence has to accept that its followers won’t always agree with everything it does 🙂

    I came out with 85% ACT, 81% National and 55% UF.

    That’s more or less in line with how I’ve party voted since 1996 with National my electorate choice.

    ACT 75% – never in a million years with Sir Roger with a hand on the tiller
    Nat 65% – prime choice confirmed
    Winston First 55% – must be the redneck component
    Surprises that UF and Prog 53%
    No surprise Greens 31% – too damned high for my liking
    Pity Liarbour was not in list

    And they don’t, which is what is so wonderful about being a parent.

    I never wanted to bring up clones, and they certainly are not. They challenge almost everthing I say. And challenge everything they hear from every source.

    I would never try to tell them what to think, and it is great to know that if I ever did, they would laugh at me.

    Poneke – I’m in complete agreement, while it might be more restful if our offspring agreed with us all the time it wouldn’t be healthy for them or us.

    If they can’t think independently, challenge views and ideas and haven’t learned to agree to disagree we’ve failed to equip them for adulthood.
