John Key’s win is historic.  In the history of MMP elections – worldwide – ever – no government has won an absolute majority.  MMP was imposed on Germany to make sure that country never had another Hitler.  It is designed to make sure no party does what John Key achieved on Saturday.  

David Seymour's Acceptance Speech

Hi, I’m David Seymour, and if you live in Epsom, Mt Eden, Parnell, or Remuera, I’m honoured and humbled to be your new MP.

I’d like to thank the people, many of whom are here tonight, who have humbled me with their generosity.

Some of you are family, some friends, some old political colleagues, and others whom I’ve only met this year.

Three tests ACT has passed this election

Elections campaigns are an opportunity for political parties to put forward candidates and policy to enable voters to choose what sort of New Zealand we want.  In this campaign there have been three tests by which you can assess the electoral choices for your vote.

If you want to avoid three years of political instability Party Vote ACT.

Voters who are concerned that on the latest polls we may be heading for three years of instability have it in their hands to deliver a decisive result.

A Party Vote For ACT is worth four times a party vote for National.

This is because of a little known aspect of MMP.

Under MMP the electorates a party wins are deducted from the number of list MPs awarded.

On average it will take 60,000 votes to elect each National list MP.

Whereas it takes just 16,000 to elect an ACT MP

So the answer is easy.

Party vote ACT for three years of stability.

In 12 months’ time, here is what will matter

In three days’ time I will be elected along with a number of ACT MPs.  I think the media will be surprised and ask how it happened?

Let me tell you.

First, ACT has been rising in all the polls.  On the latest Colmar Brunton poll, David Seymour wins Epsom and I am elected.
