Campbell will have a major sugar overload tonight

campbellJohn Campbell is going to have to eat an awful lot of lollies tonight.

Here at Campbell Live, we couldn’t wait for election night and took things into our own hands with lolly polls throughout the country.

It is nothing official and not terribly scientific but a whole lot of fun – despite the temptation we have held on to the lollies.

Here is a recap of all the lolly polls conducted throughout the country:

  • Te Tai Tokerau was won by Mana Party leader Hone Harawira.
  • East Coast Bays electorate was won by National’s Murray McCully.
  • Auckland Central electorate was won by Labour’s Jacinda Ardern.
  • Epsom electorate was won by National’s Paul Goldsmith.

  • The Papakura electorate was won by Labour’s Jerome Mika.
  • The Helensville electorate was won by National Party leader John Key.
  • The Palmerston North electorate was won by Labour’s Iain Lees-Galloway.
  • The Wairarapa electorate was won by Labour’s Kieran McAnulty.
  • The Rongatai electorate was won by Labour’s Annette King.
  • The Christchurch Central electorate was won by National’s Nicky Wagner.
  • The Bellweather seat of Hamilton West electorate was won by National.

We will see how accurate our hugely popular lolly polls where tomorrow night, and if we’re wrong we will ‘eat our lollies’.

As I said a lot of lollies…in fact the whole show is likely to be a show watching John Campbell scoff lollies until he vomits.

After all a promise is a promise. You were way wrong, now scoff away….buckets at the ready.

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.
