jdogscoop may or may not recall my completely irrational hatred of Keith Lowen in the early 2000s, and the outrage when he (Lowen, not jdogscoop) was then named in the All Blacks.

Re: NZ Politics Thread

Did anyone else hear about losing incumbent MPs personally showing up at the winning candidate's election night HQ to concede in person? Apparently it's a bit of a tradition in the rural seats. Given their long stints, Nick Smith in Nelson and Jonathan Young in New Plymouth are the standouts for ro...

Voted at a church in Wadestown around lunchtime. Didn't pop in for a prayer afterwards.

David Cunliffe was in the line behind us. I wonder which way he voted... he was in the line for special votes and I'm sure I heard him mutter "I'm sorry for being a special voter"...
