One thing that can’t be denied is that a vote for NZ First –
despite having some policies I agree with – is pretty much a
blank cheque for Winston Peters. I’ve no idea if a vote for
NZF is a vote for a Labour-led bloc or a center-right block
led by John Key.

Kinda like a vote for Kim Dotcom’s Party – what would we get
if we voted for his party? A potential coalition with
Labour? National? Sitting on the cross benches?

As a voter, I’d like the privilege of an informed choice –
not a stab-in-the-dark-and-hope-for-the-best.

Really, is that too much to ask?!
