Wow, New Zealand has election landslide today (Incumbent Jacinda Ardern) with only a measured 10% of vote in already! This sure sort of makes you convinced of heavy fake news polling.. https://www.news.com.au/finance/work/leaders/new-zealand-election-2020-results-as-jacinda-ardern-aims-for-second-term-as-prime-minister/live-coverage/b89dc60841c8a13a042c6daa00457e1d

Seems to be "showing how it's done." Good!

Exmormons are tempered by fire I like to think.

The tourist season will be starting soon. If she held the election in a few months from now, it would be a different story. The Asian, American and European tourists and students they so depend on in rural areas and college towns are not going to be allowed in.... Then it will be bye bye Jacinda.

Fingers crossed that she actually does something to stop small businesses going bankrupt.

Yes. No one here has understood yet what the impact of the loss of the small businesses will do to us in the long run.

I hope Jacinda gets that. Only been to New Zealand--North Island-- once a long time ago, but it felt like the last Eden to me. Hate the Mormon impact on the Maori. Hope that is waning.

Whattaya gonna do? We have the same problem here in North Disneyland...

Should one be a Humanist, such that no price is too high to pay to save lives, or a Realist, such that no amount of deaths is to high a price to save businesses?

Extremists on both sides would gladly kill you to get you to agree.

If only Einstein were alive to roll the dice!

They must appreciate not having to wear masks, or socially distance. They must relish life as normal. They have just nine cases recently, which they seem to be on top of, after months of being virus-free. That is no small achievement, even for an island country.

Arden does have some difficult decisions ahead of her, but I have to think that her fellow citizens appreciate what she's accomplished thus far.

And the seat count is:

Labour Party, 64;
National Party (conservative), 35;
Green Party, 10;
ACT New Zealand (libertarian), 10;
Maori Party, 1.

This is the first time a single party has held a majority since proportional representation was introduced 24 years ago. Labour will not need to form a coalition government.

She's done a great job as national leader whether dealing with anti-Muslim terror or the pandemic. Other countries should be so fortunate.

There's more power in a 12-year-old deacon. . .
