Key $1.42 v Clark $2.75


Centrebet has not really changed its odds much from what it was pre-budget. A lot of it will be confident National punters expecting an inevitable cake walk. But the bet is for who is the PM after the election - not which party will get the most votes. Seeing as how the Nats can never seem to get their maths right over coalition and support numbers, AKA "they can't do MMP", the hard core National voters do probably have an unreasonably high level of optimism at the moment.

Is this the best you can do timbo, MMP maths?

Seen the headlines recently?

Govnt spends 70 mil on the national library.

New fleet of ministerial beamers

Cullen gives out $16 of taxbreaks in the face of double digit food and fuel inflation.

Let them eat cake eh.

So how far ahead are national in the polls again?

It is surely of the greatest importance that every correct thinking person in country should be out talking to their family, friends and neighbours and convincing them not to vote for National.

Vote for love not for hate.

It will be nice to make a bit of money and see Clark packing her bags. She's toast!

I actually worry at how confident National supporters are. Even on the latest polling a Labour/Green/Progressive/Maori coalition (the "keeps the right wing bastards out" coalition) is only 3-5 seats away from National. I luxuriate in the shell-shock that'll come from the right if they don't get to rule alone in November, but I could imagine of them rioting as well if they don't get their way this time.

What job at the UN? Where - in what area - has she got any credibility at the UN that could get her a post there?

The big one I'm afraid (secretary general), but likely a stint as USG for Human Rights or something first.
