The perils of travelling the nation

It is no secret that I have no time for Winston Peters. I therefore present a list of all New Zealand electorates in descending order by the proportion of the party vote for New Zealand First. Use it as you wish. Travel guide, highlights reel, warning sign. Over to you.

New Zealand First’s overall share of the vote was 6.59%. So anywhere with a number south of that (Kaikoura and below on the list) appeals. Good on you, people of Epsom. Not so much, people of Tauranga and the Bay of Plenty. How could you?
