Winston Throws in the Towel

Much as expected, the Tailor's Dummy contues to accrue barbed wire scars on his backside. The only surprise for me was the pledge to guarantee supply and confidence to both Labour and National, whichever finally controls the treasury benches.

That seems to me like the greatest cop out and back down anyone has seen for many a long year. He has confirmed himself as the political leadure sans policy. Sans anything actually, except hot air. I ask myself "How would I feel iif were a NZ First supporter?" Theanswer is not printable.

I think he signed his own death warrant today.

After this, I don't think any poll will mean much untill we see one taken from tonight on. I understand there is one tonight and one tomorrow. I reckon you need give Winston 1% and give half od the balance to each of Labour and Gnats.

Lets face it, voters want some certainty in the party they vote for, and WP sure isn't dishing out any of that!

Quite right Bernard. Expectations were that he was to declare either National or Labour. Surely his supports will view it as a cop-out.

I don't usually take much notice of him or his party, but even I was looking forward to a definitive announcement.

I think the polls are bout to get interesting!

the next great question for winnie, is will the parliamentary pension keep him in the single malts?
Old people are strnge at times, and they might still vote for him, but any person who still has any mental agility who might have considered an option (a far stretch I know), would have to say screw him them, I may as vote for the party that I want in parliament.
