'Toothless sheep' or 'a different shade of brown'?
Ten memorable phrases that have been shortlisted in Massey University's annual Quote of the Year competition. Given this year's general election, politics dominates the finalists. Such as this tweet by Ali Ikram about the coalition negotiations: "For overseas observers, in NZ elections, we all vote then take the ballots, chuck them out, and ask a man called Winston Peters who won." Dr Heather Kavan is the competition organiser and tells Guyon Espiner what other great quotes are in the final list.
