    How about "Coalition" ?

  • Hebe,

    1. Coalition. The election was about choosing the future or the past. Winston went with the future.
    In some ways, this is the most MMP government NZ has had in the 21 years of MMP. Many of us dreamed of having a parliamentary system where parties who didn't agree on many things could find commonality in order for the best outcome for New Zealand. This has finally happened.

    2. MMP

    3. Inequality: the defining election issue in all its expressions in society.

    4. Fees-free: a personal fave given I have two sons in the middle of enrolling for their first tertiary study next year. It will change their and their friends’ lives. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

  • Hebe,

    Election: it was the most electionish election ever. Every day of 2017 so far has been about the election - the campaign started when John Key tossed a wild cat among the fat and lazy keruru of the National Party, so there was no let-up, even over the usually slow holiday season. From there it went from cray to stratospheric cray.

    Most of us who have been involved in politics sat on many days with our mouths open and wondered how we would have responded to the bombshells.

    BONUS: There’s also a $100 voucher for Rockefeller Oyster Bar, to be awarded at the judges’ dsicretion.

    Completely not expecting to win… “dsicretion” might not make WOTY, but it might get me a prize at the judges discretion? :)

    Did we do Trumpocolopse yet ?

  • Tim Gray,

    Forget “Ombudsman”, if a phrase really can win I’m going with “thoughts and prayers”, or #thoughtsandprayers if we’re ready for another hashtag.

    Probably doesn’t require much explanation?
