Friday’s answers

Thursday’s questions were:

1. It’s choisir in French, in scegliere  Italian,  elegir in Spanish and whiriwhiri in Maori, what is it in English?

2. Who said: “An election is coming. Universal peace is declared, and the foxes have a sincere interest in prolonging the lives of the poultry.”?

3. How many members should (as distinct from does) a party need to be registered?

4. Will you vote on Saturday (or before by special vote)?

5. Have you decided how you’ll vote?

Points for answers:

Gravedodger gets three and an improvement but not enough for #3.

James S. gets three, a nearly-there for #5 and a getting better but still not enough for #3.

Andrei gets three,  and 2/3 for #5, a far too low for #3 and a bonus for the full answer to #2.

James G. gets three, a bonus for extra languages and consolation point for # 4 since he would if he could.

Adam gets two, a far-too-low for #3 and a very deep sigh for #s 4 and 5.

Paul gets one and a how can #5 be yes if #4 is a pass?

I’ve confused myself with the scoring but will award an electronic box of North Otago new potatoes to Andrei and James G.

Answers follow the break:

1. Choose.

2. Mary Ann Evans /George Eliot.

3. 5,000 (currently 500). If an organisation can’t get that tiny percent of support from a population of 4.5 million it’s a lobbly group not a party.

4. Yes.

5. Yes.

    3. 5,000 (currently 500).

    If it is currently 500.

    500 is correct..

    You did not ask how many in the future would be needed .

    One more point please :-))

    Adam I said should (as distinct from does) and the explanation with the answer ought to make it clear.

    I can’t say anything more until after 7pm.
