I've got a chocolate fish for the first NZ politician who received a pasting in the election (**sideeye at Gerry, Nick, Shane, and Winston) who publicly says "yep, we got our ass handed to us by the NZ voters".
@lightweight imo just glad to see Brownlee finally out. He and Nats screwed the Chch recovery and delayed getting the right issues on the table for years. My family is still embroiled in getting stuff sorted out that we paid insurance for decades to cover.
@dch yep - I had quite a lot to do with the recovery and had to work with Brownlee (not directly, but constantly buffeted by his poor disciple and self-aggrandizement) and I'm relieved to see the back of him.
