I have been asking around about what made people choose National, the main reply has been, “because there was no other choice for Prime Minister”.  I find this interesting considering that John Key has taken his voting glory to meant that we all agree to asset sales.  What is more difficult to understand though is why ACT (with less than 2% of the vote) has been granted a trial of one of their more controversial policies of “charter schools”.  Mr Key seems to be fully behind this, but what has brought this on?  I don’t remember that being in any of National’s policies before the election.

I guess we will have to wait and see what comes out of the proverbial woodwork when the Maori Party gets back to the National Party about their demands, if any.  But in the meantime, Peter Dunne has managed to save TVNZ 7 and National Radio.

How does this affect your investments?  We will have to wait to find out…
