Nats will break right

59 + 5 + 1 = 65.

Minus 1 for the Speaker = 64. Roger is my choice there. Defuses all the issues that surround his history and his dead cold hands anywhere near the helm.

National has played a centre-right campaign to good effect, but the electorate has not given them an all out mandate to govern alone.

In practice, Act is well right of the Nats and I feel will drag National to that side. If Act does not support some bill, it is unlikely that the Nats will get support elsewhere. So the need to have a working relationship to pass laws will force them right.
