Everybody likes Kelvin . . . except Hone.

Labour’s Te Tai Tokerau candidate, Kelvin Davis, picked up the endorsement of New Zealand First leader Winston Peters yesterday.

With the Reid Research-Native Affairs poll showing the list MP neck and neck with incumbent Hone Harawira, that could tip the balance in tomorrow’s election.

Mr Peters says voters in the north need to ensure that Mana-Deutschland does not win, a reference to Internet Party funder Kim Dotcom.

Kelvin Davis also got the thumbs up this week from National leader John Key.

There was also a mixed signal from the Maori Party’s Te Hira Paenga, who while denying he was throwing the race, reminded voters of the importance of strategic voting.

Mr Harawira says strategically the smart thing is to vote for him and get another three Internet Mana MPs into parliament.

The Politics of Kindness
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: There's been a bit of debate online right now about what it means to have 'New Zealand values'. NZ First have brought the issue up by wanting a 'Values Test' for migrants and John Tamihere has written some thoughts in his latest NZ Herald column
Where's the business backbone?
John Tamihere: It beggars belief that business confidence is down, and to me this reflects major problems based on capacity and capability of our business leaders.
We are not mates with Australia
John Tamihere: Let's get the conclusion of this opinion piece out of the way, up front, and quickly. It's a myth that we are mates.
