BEHOLD: Here Are The Best Reactions To 2017's General Election
In case you had one-too-many and missed the preliminary results for the 2017 General Election, here's what you need to know...
National won 46% of the vote with Labour on 35.8%. NZ First won 7.5%, with the Greens on 5.8%, TOP 2.2% - but the biggest shock came when The Maori Party were wiped out of Parliament, securing only 1.1% of the votes.

Until then, Winston Peters has a bit to think about...
