Trademe a barometer of Public opinion

Just do a search on Trademe for pledge card and you will see several listed. The New Zealand labour party also has a listing.

I have always thought that Trademe provides an interesting insight into the psyche of New Zealanders and the pledge card issue is no different.

Bernard Darnton has his pledge card listed and so far has over 7500 views. 65 bids with the top bid sitting at $420.

The Labour Party pledge card on offer has only had 500 views and is currently sitting with a top bid of $20 with only 1 bidder which was probably Jordan Carter or Tony Milne.

The people are voting. The questions on Darntons card are hilarious. More people are contributing to Darnton vs. Clark than the Great Whip Round. 

On another note I see Labour is also selling some memorabilia. Boy oh boy they must be a right bunch of broken arses to have to sell memorabilia to raise funds.

Meanwhile get over to the Big Whip Round and donate your 1c. It costs them 50c to process it.
