    I see the WBC ad is no longer there…

    I would say there’s a 50/50 chance between it being random and matching to certain keywords (in this case retirement). Still no reason to let them off the hook – has anyone seen the inherent bias in their poll questions? Not to mention how those votes often appear to be STACKED?

    My favourite poll question was “What do struggling NZers need most?”, with an option for “an income boost, via tax cuts”. No mention of higher wages.

    You reckon Bill English is designing their polls?

    Someone most definitely has the dog whistle firmly in their mouth over there.

    right on Tane…they never mention higher wages yet they say they are the party of business…everything else is going up except wages but the right still want their holiday houses in tuscanny and swanning round piccadilly circus like compradores as if the residents dont know they are just colonial peasants witha money bag they ripped off the peons!
