Former Labour Party President Mike Williams issued a press release saying the election is still too close to call. If he genuinely believes that then here’s an opportunity for him to get rich.
I’ll give him 3 to one odds that Labour will not be the next government. I suggest he endeavour to gather up monied supporters to back his claim for as many millions as he likes and I’m happy to deposit with a lawyer of his choice, three times what he can raise.
The problem he’ll face is finding such people as Mike will learn he’s possibly the only person in the country who doesn’t know the government is doomed.
Right now Luxon could rape a nun, that’s if he can find one, and while it would cost him votes, there’d still be a new government in October.
The issue is not whether Labour can win but rather, can they survive as a political party with the 20 to 25 ragtail MPs they’ll have left after the coming well-deserved thrashing.
A final comment: I can remember every election since 1949 and can adamantly say that none were such fore-gone conclusions as this one. Nor was there such wide-spread anger, notably over their principal legacy of creating a racist society. This will take a long time to repair.
Add to that their outrageously irresponsible spending and a whole bevy of other outrages.
They will be recorded as the worst government in our country’s history.
