Radio NZ’s Jo Moir has tweeted the polling results be-grudgingly given to the National Party caucus this afternoon after significant rancour in the ranks. The results were presented by David Farrar, the Tory’s pollster, ironically meaning that the caucus room briefly contained both the Joker and the Penguin.
Holy return from oblivion, Batman!
The results are:
NZ First 3
These are the figures Gerry Brownlee reckoned were cause for Tory optimism!
Oh, well, Gerry, when it all turns to custard you can always put those dormant woodworking skills to use making park benches.
A huge gap to Labour, an even bigger swing required to get to a winning majority, and starting on a base figure that suggests there’ll only be 42 Tory MP’s left in Parliament is actually a portent of a coming thrashing, not a reason to be cheerful.
And, of course, the results were leaked.
Strong team, National, strong team!
