Here's a few numbers for those of you with a statistical bent:
1,095,968 - the number of people who party voted for Act, United Future or National in 2011
12,000 - the number of people who turned out to watch the Blues lose their eighth match of the Super Rugby season last night (sorry Blues fans)
9258 - the number of people who packed Vector Arena on Tuesday night to watch the Breakers win the ANBL championship
3500 - the number of people reported by RadioLive (4pm bulletin, 28/4/2012) to be on the Aotearoa Is Not For Sale hikoi in Auckland this afternoon. (Yes; even the woeful Blues drew nearly four times that number on a wet Friday night!)
61 - the number of votes that National, Act and United Future hold in the 121-seat 50th Parliament
60 - the number of votes that Labour, the Greens, NZ First, the Maori Party and the Mana Party hold in the 121-seat 50th Parliament
One - the majority, and therefore the mandate.
Perhaps the opponents of the government's plans to sell a minority shareholding in a few state assets got their own numbers wrong.
