A week is a long time in politics

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

Just a week ago Jordan was waxing lyrical about Labour on his blog after the latest poll. Here is an example of his usual drivel (from just one post)

There you have it, in black and white. National’s tax policy has utterly failed to deliver them the boost they needed.

This is the clearest steer yet that Labour is likely to win the election.

I dare say that that has fallen on deaf ears too though, based on the small lead it delivered for National in the second “segment” of the Herald poll.

A very very good poll, all things considered.

So one wonders what he is going to say on Monday after “Following on the previous pattern, I’d expect the polls this weekend (taken after the Treaty stuff) to show National slightly ahead

“Slightly ahead” would now be very disingenuous, but hey that is de rigeur for Labour these days.

Update: Frog has a surprisingly honest assessment. The title says it all, Ouch!
