@jegga Yesterday Hooton was saying Greens and NZF are both on 6% which makes Winnie the king / queen maker again.
In such a scenario I don't see anything has changed in the last couple of years that would stop him jumping into bed with Cinderella again.
Glad the Nats have marginalised the environmental argument of the Greens by signing on the new multi-partisan Bill.
I think strategically given all the above their best bet is to go all 2008 again and rule out a coalition with Winnie in the hope that any right leaning supporters desert him and he fails to make the threshold. Then its a straight shoot out between N/ACT and L/G
@canefan I think this is simply a vanity project for Tava. If TOP with bucket loads of money and 4 years couldn't get there last time what chance has he got with 12 mths prep time. The Progressive Greens in 96 had more money and more profile and got less than half a percent. Surely now that the environmental policies of Nat and Greens are so similar right leaning Greens are better voting for National than wasting their vote on Tava
