He’s referring to Labour MP David Clark’s suggestion that the government bans Facebook.

One Response to Issues that matter

    I really don’t know how many times I have to keep repeating this – the results of the election are simply not in doubt.

    After the election, only one party will have the moral right to form a new government: National. There is absolutely no precedent in New Zealand law for the overwhelmingly largest party not forming the government – and National will be the overwhelmingly largest party. Any government not lead by National will be seen as illigitimate by a large fraction of New Zealanders — and in particular, an overwhelming majority of taxpayers.

    Now sure Key didn’t play the referendum well — either (as Matthew Hooten suggested) going all out for non-proportional Supplementary Member, or (as everyone else suggested) reducing the MMP threshold to 4% or better still 3% (which would have guarantee a National/Conservative majority).

    But whatever the final arithmetic, we can already be sure of one thing: National will be the largest party by far, and only National will have the mandate to form a legitimate government.
