David Seymour has let slip his belief that he thinks he is negotiating a Coalition Government.
Whether that’s what Winston wants is moot but seeing as ACT and NZF are both tag teaming Luxon on some race knee-jerk virtue signal, it’s fair to say a Coalition Government is on the cards for a couple of reasons:
The first is that David and Winston need to both be in Government and in Cabinet so they are both bound by Cabinet Responsibility and ties the fate of the other to the other.
This Government is a scorpion, sitting on a fox’s face, riding in the open jaws of a great white shark.
ACT and NZF are negotiating a Mutually Assured Destruction agreement to hold the peace for 3 years.
The second reason a coalition Government is the likely outcome is because it has become glaringly apparent that Luxon is utterly out of his depth and the only reason both Winston and David want to forge a Government is to exploit this hapless muppet beyond their wildest dreams!
What will turn ACT against NZF or NZF against ACT is if either one of them exploits Luxon beyond what they are exploiting him.
If they can find a happy medium where they are both exploiting Luxon in equal measure, these circling Black Holes of self interest can maintain a political orbit.
If they suspect the other is getting something they aren’t however, then all paths lead to Armageddon.
The naked venality we are watching is the dance of those who master power for their own ends.
This is going to be a dreadful fucking Government.
A Coalition of Crows.
