Polled Wiltshire Sheep, both black and white

I am not happy.

But that only comes down to that I do not like their leaders way of jumping to conclusion of WP's doings before it was esatblished what had happened or not.
A leader should stay to leading and not sandbox comments and smirkey smiles instead of doing the work.
Helen is more of an embassador when it comes to what she says in public.

But then again I do not know what party is best for us!
and I really don't know if it is any difference since I have ideas about things that need to be addressed and doesn't seem to be on the map at all.

I like WP, he has integrity and he is standing tall and he did a good work with the americans and Condolesa Rice!
I think he is cool! :)
He did actually perform very well when it came to our foreign politic!
I thought it was sad to chase him for donated money and blow that up when he did do a good work.
It was more aired out about the donated money than what he did acchieve,,sad.
For me it felt like going after a person that was not in the same party instead of looking at what he did for NZ when it comes to creating contacts economically.
NZ itself as country is more important than what party.

I am NOT interested in politics at all,
that is at least what I think, yeah right hahahaha

Yes, it was refreshing to have the government decided on the night for a change. I don't mind the change to National, even though I didn't vote for them, but am quite uncomfortable with Act being in government.

I will sorely miss the entertainment of Winston Peters ... I did so like him:)
I am going to miss Helen Clark too ... I thought she was pretty good at her job:)
I do NOT trust John Keys one iota:(
Cheers

Obviously the good people of Tauranga saw Winnie for what he truly is and voted accordingly! The man is dishonest and arrogant - two traits I particularly dislike. I did like Helen too, however I am sooo glad to be rid of Dr Cullen and his condescending ways. I do find it odd that people trust Winnie but not John (and his evil twin, John).

I'm not sure what to think. I think we did need a change but I'm not so sure that there was anything to replace it with. Time will tell but I do hope that the PC brigade disappears along with those who feel we can't think for ourselves. It would be helpful too if somebody remembers that this is an agricultural country, it's continues to be our mainstay and it's not going to be helpful to crucify it.
No point is discussing WP, he's out of the race and was before it started.

Cheers,
Ronnie

whatever party you vote for,,

Helen has been a real good embassador for this country
and so also WP!
I will miss them both!

Hope that the people that are to replace them can do the same good work.
Work for the country and not have "domestic" disturbing fights all the time.

Agriculture is a big part of this country but there are other things as well that we have to concentrate on, not to put all eggs in same basket.

All I can say is, YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!! what we all wanted :D :D :D :D :D

In his acceptance speech Key did say that agriculture was the backbone of this country and needs to be taken notice of, or words to that affect anyway. I also hope they do get really tough with the crime. In my opinion the law should come down HARD on first offenders, and that goes to even throwing rubbish out the car window or on the ground.

I am glad to see the back of Winston, Helen and most of the rest of them. And, I also hope there will be no more of this PC bullshyte, telling us how we should live.

Again, I say, :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Oh, and I hope they do something with this Kyoto agreement which is going to cost ALL of us if National don't ammend it or even better get rid of the bloody thing, which I can't see happening now anyway.

I think it will be a while before we see any benefits as there is a lot of waste an distruction to work through and with the global situation that might take a while. I'm sure we will all dislike some of what National has to do but we will all be better of in the long run (IMHO).
Winny was arrogant till the end. His performance with the press before he would start is 'farewell' speech was almost childish. Who does he think he is? Concidering his attitude to some of our new immigrants I was very concerned at he post of foreign affairs.
I didn't like what Labour did and am please to see them go but do agree Helen was a strong lady but I did loose faith in her when she developed a 'blind spot' where Winny was concerned.
