And so the decision has been made.
The Internet Party and Mana Party have teamed up for this year’s election.
Alf and his fellow Nats are feeling seriously unthreatened.
Hone Harawira will be top dog in this odd coupling – he will have top billing on the alliance’s party list.
Mana has given up the number two spot on their combined list to the Internet Party’s leader, who will be named tomorrow (or so we are assured).
This is all too much for dear old Sue Bradford to stomach. She has spat the dummy – as she warned she would – and quit the Mana Party.
