Now we know why Trevor Mallard was interested in resurrection

Matthew Beveridge asked the question “How long before Labour and Green will poll the same?”

Colmar Brunton did some number crunching and released this graph


With the current trend line, that answer is:  Labour and Green will be polling around 20% each in 6-8 years time.  

As you can see, Labour’s woes have nothing to do with David Shearer.  And they have nothing to do with David Cunliffe.

Labour’s problem is a steady and consistent loss of support from a broad-based political party to a party of single issue nutters.   They are factionalised, and should really rename themselves to the New Alliance Party so that a new, true, Labour Party can take its place with appropriate Labour values to take the electorate into the 21st century.

One thing is for sure.  That graph proves the Labour Party is going the way of the Moa.    No wonder Trevor Mallard has been so interested in researching how to bring things back to life after death.

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.
