What they think about a range of issues - Hekia Parata staying on as Minister of Education, why do we import our CEOs from overseas anyway, we may have got the Mayan doomsday date wrong, but in any case what would be the likely cataclysms to cause us concern tomorrow? It seems that a super-volcano or a dark comet are the two leading contenders. Pay rises for MPs again, and whether wage rises for local body politicians will follow. The moves Barack Obama's making to curb gun violence, and what do we do about unruly residents of state houses?
