Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
So anyway... I voted. There is a referendum about the voting system; the right have been working hard to get MMP abolished, but the current system seems certain to be retained (I voted to retain it)

Results aren't out till December 10, but the advance vote (largely from pensioners, who are more likely to be anti-MMP) has us keeping the current system, with informal votes beating out FPP for the most popular alternative.  So, some good news at least.

Can you explain the popularity of the government and its PM?

Nope.  I'm just as boggled as everybody else.  And every time I hear someone say they want labour policies but are voting for the government, I want to scream at them.
