Personal opinions really in play – Last week I replied to a survey asking how and if I’d vote this year. I replied that I would certainly be voting, I always do. I regard it as a civic duty. However for whom I’d vote is trickier. National? I don’t like that smarmy, cold-eyed, gladhander. Labour? Please, they aren’t labour any more, they’re barely left of centre and their leader is a pompous self-righteous prat. Greens? Too unrealistic. So, in the end I guess I’m voting for Winston. Why? Because any time he’s got in he’s made the lives of the other parties a misery. And right now I see that as the best solution. If they’re coping with him, they may have less time to make the lives of ordinary people difficult, and that’ll do me!
