So Labour could govern alone?
Despite the media meltdown , the pearl clutching over the quarantine border and David Clark being a dick?
Jacinda like a boss!
This is bad news for NZ First who are politically irrelevant here.
Substantial jump up for the Greens which would allow for a Labour-Green Government, which would be an out-standing and surprising result (I still fear Greens will fall under the 5% threshold).
National have stabilised and paired back their losses by using the quarantine border revelations but still have no mates to form a Government.
If this result is what we get in September, a Labour-Green Government, then there can be no more excuses for real progressive change.
Great result for the Left.
As a side note, it’s funny, before Jacinda won in 2017, NZ msm would always ignore MMP and claim National was leading in the polls, now Labour have won 50% in the polls, it’s still all over for Jacinda? The engrained bias of the mainstream media is extraordinary.
