Shiv – Bachelor of Laws

Enrolled to vote? Yep. 

Who are you voting for?  Labour, I think the Prime Minister is doing a pretty good job of it, I want it to keep on going. I’m not a fan of the National leader that’s running as well. She looks like a female version of Donald Trump in my opinion, so I don’t want her to run and get it; so Labour is who I feel more comfortable with.

Yay or nay to legalizing weed? Ah I’m a bit of both, but I’m leaning towards yes.

Are you for or against the end of life act? I haven’t really looked into it so I can’t really give an answer.

Who has the superior pen, Bennett or Strange? They’re both good, but I use more of the David Bennett pen. It’s just easier and convenient to click and write. Plus my hands are pretty chunky so it’s easier to hold.

Who would win in a fight, the orange election man or the stick figure guy from Pak N Save? Pak’nSave all the way! Just a fan of the TV ads to be honest, he seems pretty energetic on there; I think skinniness and flexibility might help him pull through.


Scott – Masters in Science / Andrew 1 & 2 – Staff

Andrew 1: probably greens.

Andrew 2: Of course you’re voting green haha,

Yay or nay to legalizing weed? Yay x3

Are you for or against the end of life act? For x3

Who has the superior pen, Bennett or Strange? 

Scott:Jamie Strange, David Bennett’s little griips come off 

after a while.

Andrew 1: Yeah I have tiny hands, I prefer Jamie Strange’s one.

Andrew 2: Ahh I don’t really use them, I prefer my BIC pen, BIC is number one!

Who would win in a fight, the orange election man or the stick figure guy from Pak’nSave? Scott: I saw orange man’s Instagram last night and he has like a 12 pack, so him.

Andrew 1: Yeah stick man is pretty scrawny.

Andrew 2: Yeah like Spongebob.


Lushomo – Bachelor of Laws and Business

Enrolled to vote? Absolutely, 100%.

Who are you voting for? Oh, see I actually work for the electoral commission so I’m not allowed to say… I’m neutral.

Yay or nay to legalizing weed? I’m undecided, still neutral. 

I feel like I still need to do a bit of reading up, you know?

Are you for or against the end of life act? 

Still undecided on that one too.

Who has the superior pen, Bennett or Strange? 

Oi not gonna lie, David Bennett’s pens are quite nice. Do you know what the big difference is? It’s the grip. You’re trying to hold this in an exam (Jamie Strange pen), how’re you gonna write anything?? But I did see that he came up with a new design, I actually might have one.

Smash or Pass: the orange election man/stick figure guy 

from Pak’nSave?  Oh, orange election guy, smash.


Grace, Naomi, Anthony- Bachelor of Communications Design x2, Bachelor of Media Design

Enrolled to vote? Yep x 3

Who are you voting for?  

Grace: Aunty Jacinda, is that labour?

Naomi: Yeah, labour.

Anthony: Ahhh I kinda feel like “that one guy” but I’m voting for anyone but Jacinda. I don’t really  like how she’s been handling things personally. I believe, I guess this is a bit controversial, but I believe the way she handled the tragedy, although she was very considerate about it, she had a lot of responsibility and didn’t do what needed to be done. And I also believe that she should have taken, even though liberals make mistakes about this, she probably should have taken initiative about not letting the COVID-19 get to the nursing homes where people are most vulnerable.

Yay or nay to legalizing weed?

Grace: Ahh where is this getting published?…. I’d say yes

Naomi: I’d rather not answer

Anthony: I’d say yes

Are you for or against the end of life act? 

Grace: I don’t know, I haven’t thought about it

Naomi: Yeah I don’t know

Anthony: That’s actually a really hard one,I would say if they meet a very very high criteria, and they consent to it then yeah

Who has the superior pen, Bennett or Strange? 

Grace: I don’t know which ones which, but I use the red one more

Naomi: I like the colour blue, but I use this one (Jamie Strange pen)

Anthony: I was a very big fan of the blue one

Who would win in a fight, the orange election man or the stick figure guy from Pak N Save?

Grace: The orange man, he’s built different

Naomi: Yeah the election man, he’s thicker

Anthony: I mean the stick man might have the advantage cause he’s like 2D, he could just turn sideways soa you might not be able to hit him
