Dispatches

My Lords,

M'Lud Beaverbrook is very harsh upon a poor Colonial. We are fighting for the soul and the future of our country, and he expects me to send cheering dispatches from the front line. Very well. The King's government must carry on.

Sir,

I have the honour to report to you for the information of Their Lordships that the General Election of September 17 is too close to call. The last poll had National up by 2, the previous one Labour by 8. Even the pundits have thrown up their hands in despair and declared the election "very close".

The Prime Minister is looking more and more desperate. She knows this is her chance, and if she loses, her cowered caucus will have no mercy on her. Have a look at Labour's latest press releases-They are looking more like a muck-raking Opposition (and not a leal one at that), and less like a government with every passing day.

Good news is that National is back, and win or lose, Parliament is likely to be on a knife-edge. Our electoral system, a form of PR known as MMP, combines local electorates with the all-important Party vote. No-one knows how the Party votes will fall, but the electorates are somewhat easier to predict. A reasonable prediction is here, and it appears that 12 (ish) of the 15 marginal electorates will fall to National. Good Tories, to a man (and woman). The Southern electorates of Invercargill, Otago and Aoraki, all held by Labour, are very likely to return to the fold. By God, we've got them on the run.

The Prime Minister visited my university today, and was booed, heckled and left feeling threatened. Mr. Pitt does not hold with thuggery, or with shouting down a woman. I stayed away from the protest/rally, and I'm glad I did. We are fighting for a return to a gentler, kinder and more decent society. This is a university, not a beer garden.

Almost every day, new scandals are surfacing. For a representative sampling of the government's stupidities, see here, and don't forget it's in two parts, and illustrated.

The abolition of the separate Maori seats is one of National's policies. It is a Constitutional issue, tied up with the status of the Treaty of Waitangi, racial separatism, and of course, they drag in HMQ as well. See my post on this.

Finally, I shall be standing outside a few of my local polling booths on Saturday, wearing my blue Tory ribbon with great pride.

Win or lose, England expects every man to do his duty.

I am, My Lords,

Your Lordships' most humble and obdt. servant,

WM. PITT
