Do you think the Aborigines,the Maori and the American Indians were happy about British immigration into their countries? The difference between those indigenous cultures and ours in Australia and New Zealand is that the power is in our hands. Unlike those cultures we can limit who we let into our country and prevent them from becoming the dominant culture.

Australia is an immigrant country but its blend of cultures up until now have assimilated to the dominant Australian culture. They share many values and believe in democracy and equal rights. Even though Australia does not face the same issues as Europe our nearest neighbour is already extremely worried as this latest poll shows.

…poll showing almost half of all Australians want a ban on Muslim immigrants.

Forty-nine per cent of people surveyed in an Essential poll agreed that Muslims should be blocked from the country while 40 per cent disagreed with the idea. There was 60 per cent support for the ban among coalition voters, 40 per cent from Labor and a surprising 34 per cent from Greens voters.

More than a third felt Muslims did not integrate into Australian society as their main reason for supporting a ban, with some citing concerns about terrorism and lack of uptake of Australian values, the poll showed.

John Key has massive work to do on the flag

Not wanted

John Key already knew this poll would be bad, his pollster would have told him that support for a flag change is going backwards.

A One News/Colmar Brunton poll has found that two thirds of us don’t want a flag change.

The poll, taken before the final four potential flag designs were announced, shows 66 per cent want to keep the current flag, up 2 per cent from 18 months ago.

There was a similar rise of 1 per cent to 28 per cent in those in favour of a flag change.    Read more »

Are you buying your drugs online? [POLL]

vicodin_5_500_kno07270

I don’t mean illegal ones.  And I don’t mean supplements.  But I mean prescription drugs.  Are you getting around a doctor’s visit this way?

New research has revealed a sharp rise in the online drug trade, revealing more and more New Zealanders are going online to anonymously buy drugs.

The hot topic at this year’s drug policy summit in Vienna is how to handle the exploding online market. The concern is that the trade is almost impossible to police.

“I think law enforcement is pretty stumped by this new challenge,” says Ross Bell of the New Zealand Drug Foundation. Read more »

Another poll with Nats over 50%, but media says they are failing

The latest Fairfax/Ipsos poll shows National with over 50% of the vote despite the best efforts of Nicky Hager, Kim Dotcom and the hacker, in league with their bought media activists, to manipulate an election result.

While National is still riding high at 50.8 per cent, the poll shows it taking a 4.3 per cent hit after the release of Nicky Hager’s book Dirty Politics linking Key’s office to political attacks by Right-wing blogger Cameron Slater.

Uhm…no it shows the previous poll was probably a rogue with National too high and this one is more in line with others.

National would still be in pole position to form the next government but the party’s strategists will be alarmed that it has shed support in the opening weeks of the campaign.

National’s nightmare scenario is seeing its support slide to 45 per cent or below, which could see it tossed out of office, depending on which minor party holds the balance of power.

The rise of NZ First leader Winston Peters could see him as kingmaker, with today’s poll putting his party on 4 per cent. Peters, who is 70 next year, has the odds in his favour of crossing the 5 per cent threshold for winning seats in Parliament.

The poll follows a chaotic start to the campaign after Hager’s bombshell allegations that a senior staffer in Key’s office was a conduit to Slater’s WhaleOil blog, infamous for publishing salacious details of Auckland Mayor Len Brown’s extra-marital affair.
