Last cab off the rank stays on the rank

It’s official the Maori party will sit on the cross benches. I must say I am relieved over this, as I don’t believe National could happily so-existed with a group of people who don’t know if they an co-exist with each other.

We now wait for the formation of a Labour-led government involving Labour, Winston First and United Future.

If that is the case then we are looking at a dogs breakfast kind of government with the Greens sulking in the scullery. This cannot last. Even Jordan was somewhat miffed to think this was the case.

So it begins to look like Labour has tacked to the right again; the media speculation is on a coalition with the Progressives and confidence & supply agreements with the Greens, NZ First and United Future. Possibly UF and NZF as ministers outside Cabinet.

I don’t find this tasteful, as a social democrat. I would have been much happier with a Labour/Greens/Progressives coalition, supported on confidence and supply by the four Maori Party MPs.
