Well, New Zealand, true to form, you did it again. You voted for change. National won 45% and Labour 34% of the vote. The minor parties got the rest. Always you have to change after the 3rd term. You put National back into office right when a recession is about to hit. And you voted for a newbie too - one with no experience.
National has a reputation of cutting welfare benefits when things get tough. They have done it before and I can guarantee you they WILL DO IT AGAIN. BUT they never never cut their own salaries. NO that would be just too hard.
I am very disappointed. but since I dont live there anymore, there is nothing I can do. I will however keep an eye on NZ.
