Sure didn't feel like you felt that was the best approach when National was in power. It's easy to say when it's "your" ideals you want getting the backing.
Totally different when you feel that the way a party is going to ruining the country.

Man, I'd pay good money to watch Crusher Collins in an actual fish slapping contest with JA!
