Why all the moaning about “meetings”?

Vernon Small is thinking only to the end of this election when he says the following.

John Key is about to make a major mistake today with his public cup of tea with John Banks; a symbolic signal to National voters to back the ACT candidate in Epsom.

National can probably win without ACT in 2011, but in 2014 when the Maori leaders leave, and ACT aren’t around as Vernon and other media is advocating National have no coalition partners. It will be a National, Labour, Greens and rag tag and bobtail parliament, with National trying to cobble together support from parties of the left.

The media and left wing flunkies are all moaning about legitimate coalition arrangements and talks.

I don;t support MMP, i never have but it is also why I have been hammering on about Nationals Strategic Stupidity. If they keep MMP they become the Natural Party of Opposition. No ACT. No Maori Party. No United Future. No chance of ruling without winning 48% of the vote.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
