Good to see Act crashing to .3%

John Key should set them adrift now that he has the numbers!!

As long as Act win the Epsom electorate then it's a bonus for National. The 0.3% would almost certainly be votes that would otherwise go to National. .

Who in their right would vote for a labour,green,internet/mana alliance. I used to vote Labour but Helen finished me off. Will not look to them again until they have a leader who has the full force of the party behind them.

Effectively National has just become another Labour party. The only fresh air comes from ACT.

A very good quote from a previous commentator said, Some NZ citizens earn a living, some vote for a living. Sadly this is an exact indictment of what we have become.

yep - I'm with Gordon - but this fat German has to be silenced once & for all
