Too much of a good thing?

When I do a questionnaire on which party I support, National always comes first and Act usually comes a reasonably close second.

If actual voting reflects the latest polls, Act would well have 11 MPs and that might not necessarily be good for the party or parliament.

Most small parties that have had a big increase in MPs have struggled to maintain unity and, if memory serves me correctly, all  have lost several MPs at the next election and all but the Green Party and NZ First have disappeared from parliament.

Act could buck the trend.

But if National supporters think ticking Act instead would be a good idea, it isn’t.

I’d be happy with few more Act MPs but 11 might well prove to be too much of a good thing.
