Roger and Rodney make up

It looks like Roger Douglas and Rodney Hide have made up. Good. ACT needs to be united to do well. A centre-right Government is more likely is ACT and United Future both do relatively well.  If both parties are restricted to one seat each, then National really needs at least 59 seats to govern without having to be reliant on the Maori Party.  Maybe more than 59 if there is more than one overhang seat.

But if ACT and United Future can each get say three MPs, then National/ACT/United Future can govern with National just getting say 55 or 56 MPs.
