Robbo set to bail

As predicted in my 2023 predictions, Grant Robertson is standing down from to go List only. I heard this was likely in mid December.

This is obviously to allow him to after the election, without causing a by-election. It is an implicit sign that he thinks it is likely they will lose.

It is fair to note that also went List only in 2014, but this was done at a time when National was way ahead in the , and his electorate was very distant from Wellington. By contrast Grant is MP for Wellington Central – he can walk out the door and be at any electorate function within five to ten minutes.
