Not in any way a surprise here, but crucially this year they appear to have takn on board criticism made last time (well, the guy who coded it read my post) and the issues appear to me to be a fair spread of party policies.

However, last time it biased in favour of the Lib Dems, and I got Lib Dem, which, y'know, I should; anyone from different parties wanting to critique it are welcome to post in the comments if they don'[t want to blog it themselves.

They're pretty sane here, thus they're the most consistently voted for third party of late. As in getting over the 5% required in our MMP system. See: 2008, 2005, 2002.

The other main third parties sometimes get over 5%, but sometimes haven't and have only got into parliament (or not) due to their leader winning (or not winning) a constituent seat. (Except in the case of the Maori Party, who have different rules to play under.) And the Greens were the only third party to get over 5% in the last election.

They'd be a good party for you to study, meaning in the way they've worked with the ruling party. Getting that relationship wrong can be devastating to third parties. As when things go wrong, they're the ones to attract the most blame.
