MMPs Last Supper

With NZ First over 5%, the pressures on the MMP Spectrum for change beyond the disappointment of Labour’s mediocrity is greater than just propelling Winston back into Parliament.

The economic pressure will only build between now and the election.

If NZ First will be propelled over 5%, the pressures for change will carry through NZ’s MMP pumps –  the Māori Party could cause an overhang  and we could see TOP possibly winning Ilam while bringing in coat tail MPs.

There will be Electorate upsets: Tamaki, Wellington Central, Northland and ACT will end up with a very high Auckland vote.

We could see Labour, National, ACT, Greens, Māori Party, NZ First and TOP all in Parliament.

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;

Turning and turning in the widening gyre   

The falcon cannot hear the falconer;

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;

Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere   

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;

The best lack all conviction, while the worst   

Are full of passionate intensity.

Surely some revelation is at hand;

Surely the Second Coming is at hand.   

The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out   

When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi

Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert   

A shape with lion body and the head of a man,   

A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,   

Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it   

Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.   

The darkness drops again; but now I know   

That twenty centuries of stony sleep

Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,   

And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,   

Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?


The Rough Beast of NuZilind slouches towards Wellington.
