a little loose conversation - Lab MPs

This is very rough, but I think I've got it right.

New IN:
Shane Jones
Maryan Street
Sue Moroney
(My old boss Darien Fenton seems to have just missed out.)

Lost Seat but IN on List:
Dover Samuels
Jim Sutton
Mita Ririnui
Rick Barker
Jill Pettis
Di Yates
Ann Hartley
David Parker
Russell Fairbrother
Moana Mackey (was List last time but failed to win seat previously held by her mother for Labour)

OUT:
John Tamihere
Lesley Soper

Update: DPF has the list of 22 (!!) new National MPs, and maybe Darien is in because apparently she just gave a victory speech at the SFWU election night party, according to my sources.

Update the Second: at approx 12.45am, One reckons Fenton is in. My brain is too mushy but I hope so!

wohoooooooo i wake up and Fenton is in!! thanks Craig for that list - I suspect it may be vulnerable to specials, but for now the fact that she is in is a very very good thing. And not necessarily for the reasons you might think ;-)

Well, I was pleased Eric Roy won Invercargill by a convincing margin. The poor bastard seems to be the Parliamentary equivalent of a yo-yo. ;) And this might sound spiteful, but I rejoiced in hearing of a certain MP who reportedly burst into a foul-mouthed tirade on hearing the final result, and realising she was about to be "recycled". If anything irritates me beyond belief, it's bloody born to rule MPs. As a rule, they're bloody useless in The House and even worse in their electorates.
