Having diverse parties is somehow a weakness with this sort of logic.And this morning there was this tragic attempt by Heather du Plessis-Allan. There’s something unseemly about the current coalition flirting.Of course National faces the same problem about Peters dominating the media and its one remaining support party ACT is a complete and utter shambles so her concern rings a little hollow.She then talks about how previous Labour Governments only survived for one term, neatly ignoring that the more recent Clark Government lasted three terms and the Lange Government lasted two.Professors of politics explain that under proportional representation we get to elect a parliament not a government.Professors of politics need to think more carefully.This election is especially difficult for National because apart from puppet party ACT it has no mates. Clearly the strategy was to burn everyone off, get New Zealand First under 5% and then have a majority. But the people have spoken and National needs to make deals and compromise, something it has been very bad at doing previously unless the compromise was opinion poll and focus group mandated.
And it did not work out well in 1996 when in very similar circumstances New Zealand First did exactly that. It contained this rather unusual passage about the prospect of a Labour-Green-New Zealand First government: A coalition of losers is a definite possibility, especially if special votes reduce National to a two point margin over the combined tally of Labour and the Greens.
Her advice have some merit in a political game playing sense.
But there are hundreds of thousands of kids living in poverty and our environment is being wrecked.
The way the leaders almost salivate at the thought of power.
Note to Heather the only person who will be giving up their job is Paula Bennett who last time I checked is the current Deputy Prime Minister.
Before a negotiating position is advanced Labour is accused of being a doormat. National’s dramatic action is required because it has to repair relationships with New Zealand First fast if it wants to remain in power.
