Here is where the gloves come off and they will play the race card in order to further divide this country while they sell our assets from under us. Hideous!

Prime Minister John Key is wasting no time in meeting Act, United Future and the Maori Party today to hammer out support deals and he is expected to discuss giving Act MP John Banks the Corrections portfolio.
Mr Key met his National Party “kitchen Cabinet” at his Parnell mansion yesterday after securing enough seats on Saturday to run another minority Government for a second term, but with needing one extra vote, either Act’s or United Future’s.
Deputy Prime Minister Bill English, Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee, Transport Minister Steven Joyce and Foreign Minister Murray McCully met to discuss the negotiations that will be held at Parliament after today’s Cabinet meeting.
