What 25.7% means for Labour

we

Arts, travel & lifestyle blogger David Farrar has a running average of the polls over on Kiwiblog. At the moment Labour is at 25.7% but is trending down.

What this means is that Labour is down to 32 MPs, and probably less. The other interesting thing is that Labour will probably keep winning seats where tired old warhorses like Trevor Mallard havent realised their day is done so wont leave.

If MPs like Mallard and the Stenographer Rooter Iain Lees-Galloway hold their seats, Kelston goes to Labour as expected, and they pick up some of the Maori seats, and Cosgrove and Nash win their seats Labour could have as many as 28 Electorate MPs.

This would mean Labour would only have four scum List MPs.

David Parker
Jacinda Ardern
Sue Moroney
Andrew Little

If Labour falls much more and still holds onto its seats they could lose Moroney and Little. And they are falling.

What a pity Jonesy jacked it. He would have been far better than Cunliffe.

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.
