More on dodgy polls

There is a fair bit of comment around at the moment about polls, and especially dodgy polls with suspect results.

Another way that polls lose their relevance is through a clear conflict of interest between the client and the pollster.

From the Conservative party list that was released yesterday we can see that their Ilam candidate is Roger Larkins.

Roger Larkins is also the Managing Director of Research First, the same company that produced the polls that Colin Craig claims shows him in front in Rodney electorate.

I think we can now safely discount any polls released by the Conservative party as being hopelessly conflicted.

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.
