Peter Dunne’s Green electorate

by frog

Peter Dunne will have rightfully been celebrating having now returned his party to where he has wanted it to be for “nine long years” free of the annoying hangers on and ensconced back in the midst of a National-led government. 

He may however be wondering about his decision to reject the Greens so firmly given that the Green Party out polled United Future in his very own electorate by 3007 votes to 787.  That’s nearly four to one.   Interestingly he won less than a third of the electorate votes as well, meaning that much as he relies reputation as a good local MP as his basis for political survival, 2/3rds of people in his electorate joined him in voting for change.
