I am sure if Jacinda knew the result, and it wasn't in her Favour, she would be out and attacking Winston for his decision and stealing the Thunder. Likewise with National.
Maybe... I hope they go with Labour/Greens, but I'm not holding my breath. National have got a lot more to lose, and would most likely be willing to give a lot more to NZF than Labour IMHO.
I've said from the start when Winston announced he wanted to wait for the special votes to be counted that his preference is Labour. I still think that is his preference.
*I just read a Herald article that his "tough" decision was because he wanted to go with Labour but Labour is offering him less than National!
Greens 150 are meeting with Labour. They did not plan to meet unless they had to. Could be Labour or just another counter counter counter counter offer
Bloody Greens are the ones causing the holdup! Labour and NZF have both said that they wont/cant reach a coalition agreement until the Greens have (with Labour), and the Greens wont until they know if Labour/NZF are going into coalition.
Greens have a planned meeting at 07:00pm but there's no guarantee they'll have a meeting tonight. They've cancelled all the previously scheduled meetings this week.
