Who on Labour's List would make it back in on current polling?

I’m going to do a Farrar. I’m going to steal one of his posts and charts and then comment as if it is original work.

Farrar leaves out a couple of points assuming that Labour hold their seats.

Dalziel will win Christchurch East
Robertson will win Manukau East

So let’s look at who makes it back and who doesn’t.

At 29.5% of the vote the following scum list MPs make it back into parliament.

Rank and Name Effective Rank Party Vote Needed
4. David Parker 1 18%
7. Maryan Street 2 19%
10. Sue Moroney 3 20%
11. Charles Chauvel 4 21%
13. Jacinda Ardern 5 21%
15. Andrew Little 6 22%
16. Shane Jones 7 23%
18. Darien Fenton 8 24%
19. Moana Mackey 9 25%
20. Rajen Prasad 10 25%
21. Raymond Huo 11 26%
22. Carol Beaumont 12 27%
23. Kelvin Davis 13 28%
24. Carmel Sepuloni 14 29%
25. Rick Barker 15 29%

So only one new Labour List MP, Andrew Little. Everyone else misses out.

Tomorrow will feature a post on which Labour constituency seats are vulnerable at 29.5%. There will be some electorate MPs with small majorities with very loose bowels.

Right now if you are a list MP and thinking of keeping Phil Goff as leader you are literally hugging not only Phil’s corpse but your own. If Phil Goff starts plumbing the depths that Bill English did then Labour’s much vaunted next Prime Minister is seriously at risk.

Even though Andrew Little is outside caucus he will be backing a coup by David Cunliffe just so he can try to make it into parliament.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
