Did someone tell the Herald cartoonist about Labour’s own polling?

It certainly looks like someone has leaked Labour’s internal polling to the Herald cartoonist.

Numbers starting with two aren’t much fun and certainly explains the panic and leaking going on from within Labour.



You have to wonder when Labour are going to start looking at alternatives…and when Grant Robertson will make a move.

Any leadership spill around the members can easily be contained by only having one name on the ballot and Robertson and David Cunliffe coming to some sort of deal like Helen Clark did with Michael Cullen and John Key with Bill English.

Meanwhile the back-stabbing and leaking will continue apace, especially now the MPs are being taxed to fund by-elections caused by departing friends.

    Is that a Dodo in the background?

    No. It’s the one front and centre.

    I am not sure why Rouge Morgan is holding on to their poll. It should have come few days back….may be it is a shocker for Labour and they are doing the survey again?

    Whale Oil – Any way you can find out the Labour internal poll results?

    It’s all about the toxic link with the greens.

    Why has Norman flipflopped on QE? Labour has finally woken up and told Norman to fuck off if he doesn’t pull back on the crazy stuff. Labour is losing the centrists who don’t want a bar of the greens.

      I’m pretty sure I heard the mad doctor say on the news tonight he was only backing down because he didn’t have enough support from his side. So one should assume he still thinks it’s a good idea.

      And that he probably hasn’t given up trying to secure that support. .

        Yes the Green terrorists want to do what is “right” and not what is popular.

      I wonder what type of Gween brainfarts Labour are going to be held ransom to if they get the chance of forming a coalition with the fruit loops – and with the old snake oil salesman too for that matter?
      Whats to stop Wussell saying ‘we’ll support you but we want QE bought in after the first 6 months’! The left snivellers would whore out their own mother for another stint in power!

      • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

        Absolutely right. When the push comes to shove, Sheep will do anything to sit in PM’s chair.

    I can’t tell….Is this david shearer or annette king?

    • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

      Sheep in aunty King’s attire….

      • GazzW

        Is aunty King in residence currently? She wasn’t game to front up on ZB with Hosking this morning after the Eden Park debacle.

    Inside Parliament Press Gallery, and they know it all, it is said that “The Ides of August” are coming, so David Shearer is warned.
    But, But, has Robertson got the numbers he thinks ?????
