    Generation Rent-Seeker has become just as powerful as an upper house, and it’ll likely take one of those horsemen to dislodge them.

    A bailout of toxic mortgages would also drive a wedge between the market pragmatists and the market purists within the NACT bloc. I suspect both the red and blue blocs are secretly hoping the opposing bloc is in power if/when the housing bubble pops.

    This is still my theory about why Key quit, he wanted to be out of there ahead of the bubble popping ... which kind of means he expects it to happen before the election and he's leaving English holding the bag of poo
