Now it’s time for us all to step up.

I will be taking over as Interim Leader. The other Board members are Timaru’s Olly Wilson and Wellington’s Paddy Plunket.

Kind of hoping against hope that Geoff will remain leader of TOP. Excited to see this survived abortion, here's hoping it makes it to term and eats its veges and becomes a big strong boy that all mothers can be proud of

Yeah it will be interesting to see if they make as big of a splash as they did last election cycle. I feel like a lot of people jumped ship from TOP to Labour once Jacinda took the reins and Gareth was making some very questionable statements. Maybe with out Gareth and the same platform, they maybe able to get a seat.

I want to see how watered down their policies are before I vote. If they stick to the same core beliefs, I am keen to see them go well. But I am worried without Garath they might have lost some warts, but they possibly also lost their spine.

Surely if they water themselves down they lose all value?

I do think a Gareth Morgan led TOP with 2.4% of the seats (in a world where the vote threshold was 1.2%) would be an incredible world.

didn't like them last year but I'll wait for a policy list or something. Gareth was interesting at least.

Their 'Policies in a minute' was a cool video series. I'm keen to see them have another crack. I agree with Kalazarc though, without Gareth they may have lost their sting a bit.

Pop politics was fun. I listened and made opinions and everything. And what do I have to show for it? A knocked up PM and Whinnie stealing charge.
