Because Scott needs a little help from his friends

Scott Yorke needs a little help from his friends

…he is worried his blog stats will fade away as the year draws to a close.

Here’s a few things you can do to help:

  • Sit on one of my blog pages and keep pushing the refresh button. Until midnight.
  • Tell everyone on Twitter and Facebook that I need their help. Direct them to one of my blog pages.
  • Make a banner displaying my blog address, and hang it over the side of a motorway overbridge.
  • Blog about my blog. Lie if necessary. People are more likely to visit my site if they think it will help to sate some of their most savage and depraved lusts.

I’m sure you can come up with more creative ways to help. Just do what you can, and do it now, because December is almost over.

I can do better than that Scott…your post of yesterday was superb, so I will give you two links.

I heard via social media* that a Herald on Sunday preferred prime minister poll gave David Shearer 25% (sorry, I can’t find it online). Shearer’s still miles behind John Key, but it is a huge jump from previous preferred PM poll results.

This should not be happening. If the many commenters and bloggers on The Standard and elsewhere are to be believed, Shearer’s leadership dooms Labour to many more years in opposition.

So what’s going on? Is it a rogue poll? Or has someone in Labour somehow rigged the results? But who would do such a thing, and how?

My pick would be Trevor Mallard. Don’t ask me how he did it, but he gets the blame for pretty much everything else and he’s thick-skinned, so let’s just blame Trevor for this result. He won’t mind.
