Prime Minister John Key has delivered a sobering message to National Party faithful, warning that defeat is a very real prospect in September
we could easily find ourselves on the Opposition benches - that is the reality
Only got yourself Mr Key to blame as your party ditched long held principles for popularity at the polls. Like pandering to natives with racist apartheid policies and continuing with Labour's socialist policies like Working For Welfare.
Defeat would drive home the message that a party with family friendly conservative values is required. Not the progressive liberal populist policies being implemented for continued power at any price.
