There is no way the people of New Zealand will support an extension of the parliamentary term to four years. Even the Aussies have not been stupid enough to go down that track. We don't have a second higher chamber to curb the excesses of the present three year termed governments of either hue anyway. MMP while promising, has not delivered the controls we expected. No way Jose. Three years is more than enough when you consider the actions of incompetent and irresponsible prime ministers and their cabinets. John Key's Government needs the support of 75% of parliament. David Shearer will be told in due course not to give it to him; not if he wants to become the next prime minister. You have just two years at the most John key; hope you have found another job - the World Bank, IMF etc.
