I am surprise Brownlie hasn't voted well, as isn't he the third in line, after Key and English?








If Brownlee was to ever be PM, I'm moving to the USA.

I don t believe Coleman has done a good job of the health system...from what I am told the actual increases in funding are still below inflation.


I vote English just for stability...election is close enough for him to prove himself or not....


I wish Little would also stand down....he is sooo unvotable.





Not to mention that with high levels of immigration, which are increasing the population, so spending should be increasing more than it is.

I know that Bill has received a lot of praise as finance minister, but some of his performances during the 2002 election were terrible and I don't really believe in the idea of bringing back a failed leader because they have 'learnt a lot since'. 


Paula Bennett would be my choice. Yes, a lot of people can't stand her, but they are mostly people who would never vote National anyway and she has that goofy carefree style of personality that has worked well for John Key.





You are talking 15 years ago, and the world is a very different place. Also people change and learn. If that wasn't the case, then you wouldn't allow anyone out of prison.


I think it will be BE as PM, and PB as deputy. I  can't really see any other likely possibilities. But BEs time is possibly limited, due to the way  politics works, and he will need  a successor. Joyce as DPM is a possibility, as he is a solid performer and a steady pair of hands, but it probably is time for someone different and fresher.
