Sunday General Debate [POLL]


The photo above was sent to us earlier this week from somewhere in New Zealand by someone who was up and at ’em hunting.  You can just see how still a morning it was.  Awesome.

It’s getting a bit monotonous to have to ask, but so far I’ve only got one Blubbergeddon result in.  And that one isn’t even my own.  (ahem).  Come on, by the end of the day, please.

Right.  Before you get started with the Sunday General Debate, what about the election result?

“What election result?”, you may ask.  Indeed.

Turns out less than a third of the voters turned out to have their say.

In fact, more people voted for Parekura Horomia in the last election than turned out in this one.

Which leads me to this question:  If Maori can’t be bothered to vote for their own in a Maori seat, why should we care about Maori seats?

Here’s a quick poll for you to share your feelings about it:

Should National hold a referendum to remove the maori electorates

  • Yes (90%, 547 Votes)
  • No (5%, 32 Votes)
  • Somehow, even though this is a yes/no sort of question, I'm the sort of person that needs a third option (4%, 27 Votes)

Total Voters: 606
