I thought I had taken a vow of silence of all things political. After the Maldivian presidential election came the American one (a very important and history making one as everyone would agree). For me next came the NZ elections. As this is my adopted country this has a huge impact on me as well. Following the trend, we in NZ also had a change in government. After 9 years of Labour rule under Helen Clark, we have (ahem) the National Party in the house. Wonder how that is going to play out in the next three years. Anyway not going to say much...

BUT have you seen Haveeru recently? 14 NEW STATE MINISTERS! what the hell?

The only thing that comes to my mind right now is from Lord of the rings

"Don't be so quick to take what you can't give."
