Fairfax Poll

The latest Fairfax poll is out and it sees National on the rise again, Labour static and Winston Peters clutching at straws.

National has soared over the teapot tape saga and strengthened its grip on the election in the final days of the campaign.

Today’s Fairfax Media-Research International poll gives National a seemingly unassailable lead of 28 points over Labour, which is headed for a rout on Saturday if today’s result of 26 per cent is repeated.

Phil Goff meanwhile is in la-la land:

“The mood that I’m getting all around the place is that people are moving and that is benefiting Labour and we’ve got an excellent chance of a Labour-led Government from Saturday night.”

When reminded that he has been banking on a boost for Labour throughout the campaign which has never arrived, Mr Goff responded: “Just keep watching.”

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.
