a little less conversation - Winston speaks

Winston on the podium in Tauranga, happy to be back in Parliament and giving out the thank yous. He's just, characteristically, claimed the microphone has been sabotaged. Will he concede???

Gosh there seem to be a lot of thanks.

He's just spoken some absolute gibberish about the night not being known, so I don't think he's going to concede tonight. It was all a bit Mike Moore "the long dark night" and made absolutely no sense.

Even though Clarkson is in, Winston is not out. Damnit. Stupid old ladies.

Update: Winston just turned down the baubles of office, but I think he meant testicles.

i guess NZF will be a similar to in the last parliament - someone to go to on the tricky discriminatory votes, eg Foreshore and Seabed
