Polling Rumours

The silly season of political polls is well underway. All sorts of polls are being done with all sorts of different methodology, and until November the 26th no one really knows how accurate the pollers are.

I get fed a lot of different poll results (none I might add from Farrar who is tighter than a fishes arse when it comes to polling) and perhaps the most interesting rumoured poll is that Labour’s effective electorate MPs in Christchurch East and Waimakariri, Dalziel and Cosgrove, are under real threat. Apparently their response to the earthquake has not won them many votes as they have spent more time whinging than helping people get ahead. Both have lost large numbers of voters from red areas of their electorates, and with a massive swing to National they are vulnerable.

Lianne has taken a principled position and is not going back on the list but her mayoral aspirations are going to be in tatters if she loses her seat.

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. 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 who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

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