a little loose conversation - changing hands

Many many electorate seats going from Labour to National. I've already posted about Northcote, Invercargill and Otago. The weathervane seats of Hamilton West and East are close - Gallagher slightly ahead in West, but Yates has lost East by a margin of 5000 plus.

Sutton is gone (well lost his electorate), on final results, 6000 odd down.

Anne Tolley and Moana Mackey very close in East Coast, with Mackey 1110 down on winning her mother's old seat.

Napier is finalised and Fairbrother has lost to Tremain (National).

Craig Foss has Tukituki, from Rick Barker.

Maori Party look to have 4 seats, so up three, with Samuels and Tamihere out of Parliament. Correction - Samuels is in on the list - electorates going Maori are Te Tai Tokerau, Tamaki Makaurau, Te Tai Hauauru (Tariana Turia, MP already had), Waiariki (the only one finalised)

In the minor turn-overs, obviously Epsom has changed from National to Act (Worth has conceded), and Tauranga from NZ First to National.
