Does this mean that Labour have given up?

On TVNZ yesterday:

Goff yesterday said he believed Labour could win 40% of the vote, giving it 48 MPs.

The last time Labour got 40% in an opinion poll was 17 November 2007. Since 2008 the only time Labour has got out of the 30s in polling was when they were in the 20s. In the immortal words of Darryl Kerrigan:

Next Phil will be telling us that “It’s the vibe of the thing“.

    Is roger suffering withdrawal symptoms with Inventory on Holliday?

  • Mr. Infinity

    roger, where did you learn to write/count/analysis economics/form a coherent sentence? It really does speak to the all round low level of intelligence possessed by the left. Then again, all that booze and that P and those welfare cheques and sessions sucking Goff’s dick can’t leave a man in the best mental state.
