Labour are dog tucker, Greens stepping up

The other day the Dominion Post had an article saying that Labour was dog tucker.

The latest Roy Morgan poll confirms that, and confirms that Goff is a dead-man-walking.

“The latest New Zealand Roy Morgan Poll shows support for Prime Minister John Key’s National-led Government is virtually unchanged at 56% (up 0.5%). Support for Key’s National Party is 52% (up 0.5%), ACT NZ 2% (unchanged), the Maori Party 1.5% (unchanged), and United Future 0.5% (unchanged).

Support for Opposition Parties is at 44% (down 0.5%) — Labour Party 29.5% (down 2.5%), Greens 9% (up 2%), New Zealand First 3.5% (down 0.5%), Mana Party 1% (up 0.5%) and Others 1% (unchanged).

If a National Election were held today the National Party would easily be returned to Government.”

This poll has confirmed a trend that has now been seen in ALL the polls released over the last few days….National is going UP in the polls, while Labour is going DOWN in the polls.

At this rate Goff is going to break Bill English’s 2002 record.

The drop in support for the Labour party has benefited the Green Party (as other polls are showing). The Greens may just become the new official opposition. In Canada this year we saw a traditional “third placed party” become the new opposition party and the traditional opposition party become a third rate party.

Unless some Labour MP’s grow some balls and roll Goff, they are staring down the possibility of not only defeat, but relegation to a third rate party and handing the role of “official Opposition Party” to the Greens.

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.
