Um, Nick haven’t you noticed yet that National LOST?

After more than two decades in parliament are you really so clueless about how our MMP system works?

There is no electoral or legal requirement to go with the party with the most votes. Perhaps it is this lack of emotional intelligence around?MMP that really cost National the election? Instead of treating with respect the leader of the Kingmaker party because all the polls were indicating that he would be a part of the government they decided to play silly buggers instead. They treated the election as if it was still FPP and thought that they could do a hit job on Winston Peters, knock New Zealand First out of the running and govern alone.
