Sledge of the Day

So devastating was the latest One News/Colmar Brunton poll result for Labour that the Opposition leader, Andrew Little, declared it “bogus”. In desperation, Labour released its own – vastly more encouraging – internal poll data from UMR Research. Unfortunately, in political terms, this is a bit like presenting an affidavit testifying to your beauty and intelligence, signed by your Mum.

Perhaps the Sledge of the Year.

Without using Google, would you like to guess who wrote that?

  • Sally

    Chris Trotter?

  • One_step_beyond

    I would guess Rodney Hide

  • Des

    The Hosk?

    • Blueburd

      It does sound like a Hosking

  • johcar


  • 1dafool

    Red Claire T?

  • Blueburd

    It sounds very Hosking but I’m going to go with Paul Henry

  • earthyundertones

    Unbelievably I’m going with Chris Trotter.

  • Nige.


  • Tiger

    Bob Jones?

  • Larry

    Winston Peters

  • JohnO

    Chris Trotter

  • Tyler Durden

    David Cunliffe?

  • jaundiced

    Don’t know who wrote , but even Andrea Vance was giving him a hard time for his constant negativity. Mind you, she was comparing him with the new wet Canadian PM.

  • Jp

    Chris Trotter

    • Boss Hogg

      I reckon you are on the money.

  • Wheninrome

    To be fair to mothers they are always right aren’t they when it comes to their children’s attributes.
    I am sure Andy’s mum thinks he is wonderful, we all need to be loved by someone.

    • johcar

      She might think he’s wonderful, but the story goes that she didn’t vote for him…

      • Wheninrome

        That is really sad, especially if she voted for someone else, perhaps she refrained from voting.
        Surely she could tell him he is in the wrong job, a bit like the fat girl who wants to be a gymnastic or ballet dancer mum has to do the kind thing.

        • Spiker

          Hardly a ringing endorsement if your own mum won’t for you. He hasn’t a chance really.

  • kayaker

    Leighton Smith?

  • Dumrse

    Must be JK, he has that sort of dry humour. He gets my vote?

  • Slightly flawed.

    Bob Jones?

  • wanarunna

    Barry Soper would be my guess.

  • Wasapilot

    Great sledge alright, I would guess Hooten wrote it. Whoever it was, well done that man / women / LBTQ. Hopefully noone is offended if I have missed their gender identification.

  • oldmanNZ

    Paul Henry?

  • MyKillS

    And the answer is?????

  • Chris Trotter said that. On Facebook. And it is 100% true.
