I know this is a Labour leaning blog, but I hope a lot of progressive voters look at where the Greens are sitting right now and decide to give them their party vote. Labour is doing amazingly well this term and rightly deserves the support they are getting...
Judith was planning to release them yesterday, but her sharpie ran out of ink
The interview they had on Newshub was hilarious and sad (at 1:49): Q: That's kind of your only line isn't it, that you can run the economy better? (Goldsmith enthusiastically agrees!) Poor guy is out of his depth
They're claiming that their polls have a 10% swing from Labour to National, so around 50% to 35% instead of 60% to 25%. Pretty dire if that's all they can claim
Thanks for the glowing endorsement Wayne Fortunately we are moving forward as a country and leaving warmongers like you in our past Judith attacking the "woke" actually reminds me of your role as "Political Correctness Eradicator", didn't work then and ...
Clickbait headline, don't give them what they want (your views)
Sad how 40% is enough for a comfortable majority in Canada. No wonder Trudeau walked back his promise of proportional representation
Why are they proposing heavy rail to Auckland Airport, via a Puhunui spur, I thought that debate had been well canvassed, and a heavy rail line was always the first option but found to be unworkable https://www.greaterauckland.org.nz/2018/10/19/how-easy-is...
Nationalising it is only a massive taxpayer subsidy to Rio Tinto, considering their bill for cleaning up the site is an estimated $256m
I was wondering how Tova always seemed to have a mic in the Nats caucus meetings, but this explanation makes more sense
Wouldn't take too much notice of the Greens' 9% rating … Roy Morgan is usually the Party's best Pollster … a pretty fair bet they're overstating support. Likely overestimating the support somewhat, but their trend for the green party is promising. Up from...
Judith is likely to recapture some of the lost tories who felt like ACT was their only choice as well. Combine those two factors and we could see JC push the Nats right up against the edge of 40%
Judith talking to Catherine Ryan on Nine to Noon right now. Pitching for a lot less debt (aka austerity), a lot less regulations (cut the red tape!), and not ruling out privatisation. Taking the Nats back to 2005 it seems.
Pretty tame stuff from Labour. I was hoping for more of a bold vision of what their campaign will look like, in the vein of what the Greens announced the week before. A big campaign piece that pays homage to their labour movement roots
Except my constituency vote has no bearing on whether labour or the greens get into government. And I don't want O'Connor representing me. So I won't vote for him.
No I haven't, and that may be so, but I'd still rather vote for the green candidate. Too hard to ignore his past position even if as he claims, it has changed.
The only reason Ohariu mattered was because Dunne was his own party and gave national another partner to form a majority with. With Dunne out of the way, the Greens standing a candidate will have no affect on the number of seats each part will receive, and...
That is very interesting about Curia not supplying polling data. Could possibly have National even lower than the recent TV polls and don't want to bring their average down further.
Oh jeez, I can picture it already..
