Yes, As all kiwis will now well and truly know, NZ First leader Winston ” Kingmaker ” Peters, after employing his well practised flair for showmanship by keeping the media in suspense for days while has a nice little chat and a cuppa with Bill English (National/Democratic Independent Union) and Jacinda Ardern (Labour/Progressive Alliance), has crowned The Red Queen. Not really a surprise in hindsight considering the spectacular last minute switch of Labour leader and subsequent media frenzy over charismatic Fabian Ardern.
To be honest, I’m impressed with the show that the NWO has put on for us. The most entertaining elections puppet-show we’ve had in New Zealand politics for a long time, and a fitting last performance for Winston Peters, who’s been loving every minute of it.
It will be very interesting to see what unfolds!
