Political Poll on Sunday

I got a phone call yesterday asking for 8 minutes of my time. Being a helpful person I agreed to it and noted the kind of questions I was being asked.

I soon realised that it must have been paid for by either The Greens or Labour or was one on behalf of both. I was only asked what I thought about two political parties on one question as they didn’t give me any other options. I was asked what I thought about the Greens and then about Labour.

I was also asked about Andrew Little and about John Key. I was given a number of opportunities to say bad things about John Key which I declined to do. I was not asked to expand why I rated Key highly. However, when I rated Andrew Little at zero I was asked why I had scored him so poorly.

I told them because of his Angry Andrew yelling in parliament which is not Leader like behaviour.

Then I was asked about Climate change. I selected the option that it was a natural phenomenon. The next question then wanted to rate how effective the government was at dealing with it. I said there is no problem so why should they be dealing with it? ( of course that point of view was not an option that I could select )

They also had a problem with Sky City and wanted me to select negative options. I pointed out that the questions were rigged and biased as it was not possible to choose a positive response. I was given two negative responses to choose from only, on one question about Sky City.

I really don’t understand why they waste their money on polls if they do not want to obtain credible data from them.

John Key uses polls to his advantage because I believe he finds out what people really think and then makes some of his decisions accordingly. This poll however will be of no use to those who paid for it as they had an agenda before they even got the results. They are looking for a reason to attack the government for climate change. They have it in for the Sky City Convention Centre and Sky City itself and they are trying to find the ‘ evidence ‘ they need to support their stance rather than forming their stance from what the voters actually want or think.

They are also desperately looking for evidence that John Key’s star is fading and that people are no longer supportive of him.

The best question was when they asked me what I thought was the most important issue of 2014. My answer was not on the list so the guy had to go check with his supervisor.

I said that in 2014 an ethical line had been crossed by the media and that because of that no one’s privacy will ever be safe. Hacking has been legitimised by the Media so that none of us can ever feel secure again.

It is the one thing that the haters have forgotten in their feeding frenzy to ‘ get ‘ John Key, The National Party and Whaleoil. Pandora’s box has been opened and now everyone is fair game. By not protecting Cameron’s rights they have not protected their own rights. The razor cuts both ways.
