Friend, The shift has begun

Chris Flatt and Labour are on the bludge at the same time deluding themselves. Here are excerpts their email, sent today:

The shift has begun

Dear Friend,

This morning’s poll in the Herald shows that the shift has begun. For the first time since 2008, National’s support has fallen under 50%.

New Zealanders know that asset sales are not the solution to any of the problems the country is facing.

They also know that with his record of taking the country backwards, another John Key-led National government is the wrong choice to make.

That is why National is down in the polls.  That’s why there is an opportunity for Labour.

Of course Chris Flatt and the other blinkered numpties in Labour HQ didn’t see that in 3 polls this week Labour has fallen. He is right, the shift has begun, Labour are sub-30% with no possibility fo clawing their way our of the 20s. Labour have failed to see that they can;t govern without a large dollop of the indigent vote and the brown indigent vote plus the free spending mad cap Greens.

Labour are flat broke though, because the bottom of the email has Chris Flatt on the bludge:

In fifteen days New Zealanders have a choice.

…Friend, I need your contribution so we can get the news about National’s record of failure out there, and so we can reinforce our positive plans for change.

We’ll put the money into slashes on hoardings, and potentially towards some new media advertising highlighting John Key’s record.
Thank you in advance. Every dollar counts.

Chris Flatt
General Secretary

Clutching at straws, looking for the positive in rogue polls and flat broke, no wonder Trevor Mallard is spending all his time trolling through the web archives of the National party website.

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.
