With 98% of the by-election count in, less than 100 have voted for legalising dope.
And 1300 or so couldn't bring themselves to hold their noses by ditching Labour and ticking Winnie.
The Natz have been given the message. How to turn a near 10,000 majority into a 4,000 loss in barely 3 months since the general election. Maybe the tossers that are the Natz will take heed and revert to their long held principles, instead of being Labour-Lite.
Looks like Winston is the new MP for Northland. Fun times ahead as Winnie will no doubt daily reinforce the message for the Natz that ignoring the regions is at your peril.
