Digipoll results

The Herald Digipoll is out and sees National drop. This poll seems out of kilter with the others, but we will see what Roy Morgan and Tv3 say after the weekend.

There really hasn’t been anything that would warrant a drop of that size.

Perhaps more worrying, for Labour, is that even though National dropped so too did they.

ACT has risen so that they can deliver two MPs.

This poll will serve as a wake up call for National’s base. It should help hose down any complacency.

Labour though will be emboldened to continue with the nasty. They will ignore all other polls and use this poll as a validation of the nasty.

I’m looking forward to seeing the rest of their playbook. We haven’t yet seen their age old claims of a “hidden agenda”, or calling John Key “cancerous and corrosive”, or maybe visit a sheep that needs shearer while calling Maori “haters and wreckers”.

Perhaps now National may also take the referendum seriously. Labour and the Greens are campaigning hard, along with all the major unions, to retain MMP. Perhaps that is a really good clue for the dim-bulbs. In all of my life I have known one thing. If assorted socialists, unions and control freaks think something is a good idea then it is best to do the opposite.

When your political opponents want something so bad they are prepared to spend large amounts of money on it only a fool stays silent. Only fool sits grinning as your opponents ride roughshod over you and your party. They play for keeps, it is time National did too.

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.
