Beehive View

Posted on | November 23, 2011 | 13 Comments |

It”s election day in New Zealand this Saturday. I cast my votes about a week before leaving for Melbourne (which made listening to all the election coverage after I’d already voted extra-amusing) but for everyone else it’s yet to come, and there are choices to be made.

This time around there are four choices rather than the usual two: there’s the electoral vote and the party vote; and also a referendum asking if a) should we keep our voting system of MMP (mixed-member proportional), and if not, b) what should it be changed to?

So I went to one of the open-early for special votes booths, and I cast my votes. But when we were staying in Wellington  our hotel had such a great view of the Beehive – our house of Parliament – I couldn’t resist getting some photos to show my thoughts on the entire process.

(click for extras!)

The whole things makes me tired, really.

Generally whomever is in power just fucks us for the next few years anyhow – so why not bend over and take it?

This is my ‘hotel’ photo set for the Scavenger Hunt. And a lovely hotel it was, too! Big enough to share with Hylas and Kiana, with a delicious view, comfortable beds, and a great shower as well :)

    LOL
    GREAT expression of political attitude!! I’m feeling much that way over both state and federal government these past several years.

    Hmmn, maybe WE should run ;)

    LOL. I love the expression for the second pic, when you’re bent over and “taking it.” Very cheeky. Love the sexy pics! :)

    I ADORE this, most especially the second photo.

    Also, this new hairstyle & color suits you incredibly well. It also highlights your flushed cheeks and pink parts ;)

    Beautiful hotel & beautiful woman!

    I agree with Lilly. I love your hair, and the relaxed smirk you have.

    If I ever make it out to Melbourne, I might just have to stay in that hotel. =]

    I keep hoping a news camera caught glimpses of you — what fun that would be!

    Kazi – The state of the world has going to have to change a lot before the are accepting of a glorious exhibitionistic slut like me in parliament :)

    K&K – Cheeky describes me very well, I think :)

    Lilly – I shall be sure to pass the feedback onto my stylist! I think he’s done an awesome job, too.

    Illithyia – *blushes*

    Xhumed – Impish? Yes, I like that :)

    Clive – Hmm, do I need to do anything to ensure your vote, Clive?

    Kiwiana – Hee!

    Steven – Oh, you’re most welcome indeed!

    Molly – Sometimes you’ve just got to get the message across…

    viemoira – It just seemed appropriate somehow!

    Simone – Thank you for the lovely compliments! This hotel is actually in Wellington, New Zealand – (Rydges Hotel), so be sure to stay there if you make it over!

    DDD – I certainly would have enjoyed that :)

    xx Dee
