I'm split on this. I do think luxon should come out a lot stronger on 3 waters and Co governance, and draw the line in the sand now. If he's not the person to lead national, then who is?

Who wants another 3 years of what we've got now? All very well to slag him off, but.... what's the alternative? Act? Yep, I guess so. The last thing national needs right now is a leadership change.

I get it. Yes, national seems weak. But to rock the boat now?

In life, sometimes it's necessary to eat a proverbial shit sandwich. And never forget, the msm will dine out on any ructions re national. I know people are still dissatisfied wi…

If Luxflakes had Any idea, HE SHOULD RESIGN NOW, If he thinks leaving it to the last minute to expound some idealogies how NZ should be run, then He is mistaken !!

NZ must be run every single day by people who know what THIS COUNTRY REQUIRES NOW, THIS IS SERIOUS WE ARE ALL INVOLVED.

It is not about buying votes or changing who now is on a sickness benefit to try to BS the public that these dole bludgers are now not dole bludgers, they are all paid by us the taxpayers to sit on their arses to expect decent hard working to continues to provide for them regardless of their selfish Jacinda will provide for me BS.

Jacinda…

Muriel Newmans latest article and commenters say it all for me. I am not alone, pretty much all of them agree that National are not spelling out their position on the big issues strongly enough. Most are sick and tired of the Maorification of our country to the detriment of all others. Most are now swaying towards ACT and many appear to be ex-National voters. I am with Democracy NZ as everything they say aligns with my views.

I think we are entering a whole new era in the political arena. There seems to be a movement to amalgamate all the small parties( except Democracy NZ), which can only be a good thing. I think it is possible we will…

The honeymoon will be over before it is consumated unless National starts getting back to its early 2009 principles (pre Key) and remains a legitimate centre right party. Otherwise it will find its support erodes fairly quickly.because make no mistake its recent support in the polls is really the anti labour /Greens /Maori party.

backlash against these ratz artz odious marxist and race based policies-it is not evidence of a pro National vote of approval. If National want to snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory simply adopt the insanity rule of doing the wrong things over and over again and expect different results.Do they have the fortitude or nous to win in 2023 .-on current form not likely.

The movement with the most excitement around it at the moment seems to be dissident voices like Tamaki's Freedom and Rights Coalition and Voices For Freedom. A good way to gauge their potential is the palpable panic emanating from the legacy media in their attempts to mischaracterise and discredit these so-called "threats to democracy." These alternatives would be ignored if they were not a threat to the status quo. The reason they are being actively undermined and repudiated is because the "threat" they pose is real, in the sense that they may disturb the long-running power-sharing arrangement between the major parties.


If Luxon had any foresight, leadership and agency, he could have absorbed this rising tide of anger and disillusionment…

I am starting to think that Luxon thinks all he needs to do is be popular with his caucus. That's NOT what it's about Chris. Listen carefully or your political career will be brief.
