The final 2014 Green Party list

May 25th, 2014 at 5:47 am by David Farrar

Stuff reports:

A shake-up of the Green party list sees older MPs plunge in the rankings.

Second-term MPs Kennedy Graham and Catherine Delahunty slide down the list, leapfrogged by Julie Anne Genter, Mojo Mathers, and Eugenie Sage, all elected in 2011.

Gareth Hughes scales two places into the top five. The biggest loser is agriculture spokesman Steffan Browning, plummeting five places to the 15th spot.

It may see him struggle to return to Parliament if the don’t increase their share of the vote in September’s election. Denise Roche falls two places, overtaken by Wellington Central candidate James Shaw.

Co-leaders Metiria Turei and Russel Norman take out the top two spots. Co-convener Georgina Morrison said there were six new faces in the top 20, with 10 men and women and four Maori.

A draft list was put together by candidates and delegates and issued in March, and then voted on by members. Shaw, Logie, Roche, Delahunty and Hutt South-based Holly Walker were all ranked lower by the rank and file.

Somewhat annoyingly the article doesn’t give actual rankings for candidates, so one can’t tell exactly where everyone is placed. It sounds like the changes from the draft list are relatively minor. Of course even a change of one ranking though can be critical for those on the cusp.

    A couple of things arise from that list.

    1. Will the ever expanding female co leader and castle owner be the deputy PM should the stinking Greens form a government with Labour given she is number one on the list?, or, will we have two or co deputy PM’s?

    2. Can anybody tell me what Mojo (the name alone should alert everybody to her moonbat mindset) has achieved in the house apart from costing us all a lot of money? Mathers is an example of tokenism at its worst.

    I am so pleased gareth Hughes is well up the list. He provides permanent reinforcement of why no sane person should ever vote green.

    The bunch of them will be hilarious as ministers in a labour-green government ( from the perspective of a kiwi living away from nz)

    I have called for this previously but after seeing this list my call nay have more importance:
    We need all voters to complete a short quiz for their vote to count plus for a vote to count the voter must be tax positive

    Lets say 12% of people will vote Green. That leaves 88% who will not.
    And of that 88% many are like me, well not like me, but we will vote actively against Green.
    Do you remember 2005 when Helen Clarke chose to work with NZ First rather then Green.
    And just a few weeks ago Cunliffe said he would not make a formal coalition with Green.
    Green is political poison.
    I would expect Russell Norman to resign after the election,
    but if he stays well you know another thousand supplementary questions in the house ,
    it killed my friend Rod Donald

    The only reason why Clark could do that was because Labour was polling high enough that it could govern with the Alliance, then Progressives and NZ First – she could blow off the Greens knowing they had nowhere else to go and she could count on them for confidence and supply.

    As things stand right now, Labour + Mana + Maori Party + NZ First = 38 maybe 39% and is still not enough. Labour would have to steal north of 5% directly off National to be in a ballpark to do what Clark did and govern in the minority with C&S from the Greens

    kiwi in america – I remember Helen Clark used to say she could govern with 38% of the vote. But parliament has fragmented further since then. I think 34% would do the trick these days for Labour.

    The Greens are under some delusion they are popular.
    Where as in reality they are just harbouring disenchanted labour supporters.
    labour with its leadership problems. Divided with factional infighting.
    The greens might have to look after labours flotsam for some time.

    There seem to be a lot of MPs in that party who are firmly in the trough and we see nothing. I am sure they are campaigning hard for the next election ……

    It cost a lot of money via Pharmac to keep me alive/not a vegetable, at what point would you consider me to be ‘tax positive’?

    Big bruv 7.53amI do a lot of Parliament TV watching and always seem to see “Mojo” Mathers sitting behind clown Turei and idiot Norman.
    I will not denigrate her deafness and and general difficulty in speaking. However she probably is placed there to get the sympathy of viewers. You genuinely feel sorry for that lady. She looks so vulnerable, no one would attack her from the other parties. But for the Greens, everyone is in line for attack.
    Julie Ann Genter, is the most effective Green MP. She has a girlish enthusiasm and some humour which seems to endear her to other MP’s.Her transport ideas are rubbish of course but an attractive lady outweighs policy of course !!!!!!!!!!!!
    The Green Party, the off course substitute in TAB terms, for the Communist Party. For a good Quinelle go the Greens/McGillicuddy Serious.

    “Why do the Greens not have any constituency MPs/candidates? Is this a tactical thing or something?”

    Turei clarified the Green position on this recently when Marama Davidson sounded like she was keen on campaigning for her electorate. I asked her if there are any circumstances Greens would contest an electorate or Greens will maintain a total party vote focus.

    Metiria Turei ‏@metiria

    We’d have to consider party polls, personal polls, overall benefit to parliamentary presence.

    We expect to contest to win electorates in the future but for now its all Party Vote Green.

    http://yournz.org/2014/05/20/davidson-not-contesting-tamaki-makaurau/

    Interesting to see Turei still at number 1, Greens tend to swap leaders’ responsibilities and opportunities but the members have placed her above Norman again.

    I wouldn’t have dreamed in a million years you would post that up early. I mean dumbfounded – I just don’t think to myself “Manolo or igm will post early some scathing, stereotypical rhetoric monologue that has nothing to do with the subject”. Nup, never do I think that – not once – ever. Just doesn’t enter my mind. You just blind-sided me with that – didn’t see it coming what-so-ever. Just didn’t ever expect that to be the first or second comment.

    1. Metiria Turei MP
