Readers have asked for me to run this poll because… well, they want to know the answer!
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 »
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.

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.
