It seems that the policy gap between the Greens and NZ First remains a problem for the Government's negotiators. The weekend polls and Winston's continuing difficulties are causing both sides to dig in a bit. We may know more later on today. Why Winston would want to make compromises right now, with another difficult week in Parliament in prospect next week, we cannot understand, so this latest info makes more sense than some of the comment we picked up over the weekend and Monday/Tuesday.
