    Such a pity MMP did not get the boot. The country is now destined for a future of mediocrity with Parliament being dominated by self important Greenies and useless Socialists. It makes Australia look more and more inviting each day. I just hope that the Nats go full steam ahead with some good inovative policies in the next 3 years in order to give us a head start before the idiots take over once again.

    I am very pleased MMP has been entrenched, as I do not believe we should be changing the voting system on any regular basis, and also that MMP is a much more democratic system than FFP and your anti-democratic SM (My preference is STV but that was lost in 1992 so I gave up then).

    Perversely, I am alarmed that the Government now has only a one-seat majority rather than the “epic victory” the media portrays it as. All it takes is for one National MP in a marginal seat to die or have to resign and the seat go elsewhere, for there to be massive political instability with Peters lording it yet again.

    This is not the fault of the electoral system. I blame it on those voters with such a short-term memory that they gave Winston First-NZ Last another swig at his trough.

    Sorry, I should have responded to that in my previous reply.

    Um, Australia is controlled right now by “by self important Greenies and useless Socialists.” The Greens have but a few seats but control everything the Gillard Labor Government does. Gillard is hostage to the Greens and three lunatic independents.

    There is really not much difference between the two countries.

    Meanwhile in Germany, home of MMP, die Grünen have been reduced to very much inconsequential status as the public there have woken up to them, in the land of their birth.
