We’ve always known that Wellington is a warm glowing lovefest of pinko liberal lefties. And no matter what your feelings are on the ambiguously worded opinion poll citizens-initiated referendum on kid-hitting, looking at the specific results of the Wellington electorates is pretty interesting.

As it happens, as of Friday night, the top two electorates in New Zealand with the highest percentage of ‘yes’ votes are Wellington Central (35.9%) and Rongotai (29.22%), and Ohariu isn’t too far behind with 19.73%.

The other big pockets of ‘yes’ are found in Auckland Central (28.84%) and Mt Albert (22.67%).

So if you’re feeling a little let down by the overall referendum result, a little comfort can be found in knowing that Wellington is still ace.
