Eight Points In Front

Latest Clmar Brunton poll announced on TV1 News a few minutes ago. This is great news for Labour. Go to Just Left for the rest of this gripping story.

ACT continues to languish. Will Gnats pull out of Tauranga? Will they have any choice if Clarkson is found to have overspent?

Cannot wait to see what spin Jordan and co put on this poll.

Jordan actually is awake tonight but he's still busy trying to beat up The Don over his so Treaty policy. Jordan is all a dither because Don might not give the Queen a powhiri. Suddenly all the lafties want the queen to be honoured.

It will take a while to get any coherent commentary on Colmar Brunton. The Ninth needs to have a meeting first and then tell teh dutiful scribes what to say. By hell, I wouldn't mind being a fly on the wall. I hope they've all got potties.

AF,

And Dr Brian Edwards will be at the meeting running around like a flea in a fit trying think of ways to improve Helen's tattered image.

An election about 'trust and credibility'

LMAO!!

Well, this one will certainly throw the proverbial cat amongst the pigeons. It should be interesting to see what happens over the next week with this one. I'm also interested in what the various rolling poll of polls' show.

Get your money on at Centrebet before it's too late. The odds are shortening already.

Great! Expect to see Clark, Cullen and Mallard turn ferial over the next two weeks. It will get ugly.

Labour will really go after the Don again, watch Clark Vader do her utmost to get him to stumble on the forthcoming leaders debate.

The problem for Labour though, is personal attack based politics wears thin with voters VERY quickly. Notice that the Don has steered away from it.

Clark today in the SST complaining of lesbian taunts is ridiculous on two counts. Firstly, that debate was what, a week and a half ago, and secondly, does the SST have nothing else to cover but report but pinko spin ? And to think, until the "Spot The Difference - Hansen / Brash" headline after Orewa, I used to subscribe to that grubby little rag.

It's not looking good for Act.

If National polls this high on election day, won't they be getting one of their highest vote %'s ever? That's quite an accomplishment from Clark &co. Just the sort of thing to result in a nasty and demoralizing internal bustup after the election. And will Jordan Carter return to Western Canada?

Chron: Now that Fairfax has two new conservatives in charge I expect we'll see some changes in editorial stance.

AL, hope you're right about Fairfax and the SST. As for Jordan returning to Western Canada, if he ever does, I hope he takes that obsequious reprobate "Paul" with him [he needs to get out more]

PS No offense to "Paul" regular contributor to Sir H.

AL:
Balls. As I've said elsewhere, I'm sure the only colour David Kirk is interested in is dollar green not Tory blue. Despite a better than expected profit announcement, most analysts are saying the company's performance outside New Zealand is pretty ordinary in an extremely competitive industry. (And there are signs that the advertising bubble here is beginning to deflate.) Let's remember that Rupert Murdoch is a conservative, when he owned FNZ's titles most of them were not editorially in line with the proprietor's ideology.

2) If I was in Tauranga, I'd vote Labour for the first time in my life if it meant getting that toxic waste bitch Peters out. On the face of it, I'm not seeing a slam dunk case of campaign overspending.

I don't know the man, nor even have much an idea of his political history. But ff he's interested in dollar green - then I've got some money for him! But only if he brings out a sane (I'd even settle for centrist) Sunday Star Times.

And Clarkson says he had his advertising checked out by a lawyer weeks ago. Probably just local smear tactics by the Winston campaign.

By hell they ae going to need paramedics over at Leftie land next week when Gnats start polling 51% plus. We haven't yet seen a poll which reflects Pilotgate or the No Kids Lesbo lies or Dr brash's eminently sensible treaty policy.

That Karl Rove is a bloody clever chap. Great investment by the Gnats. Of course, it's all his work.

Oh BTW did you see New Orleans voted heavily Democrat? Apparently Rove and Bush organised the hurricane to punish them. That's the latest. It was Bush's fault the 300 busses stayed in depots when they could have taken the people out.

AL - who, the National candidate? Yes, his name is Bob Clarkson (no relation).

Like Craig, I can't see a change in ownership resulting in a change in editorial stance. The only reason I could see them doing that is if they think they can capture a larger market share than they currently do. If that was the case, wouldn't they have done so by now?

I kind of get the feeling that the electorate would be keen to break a new record and deliver a good old fashioned FFP result. 51% National. The mood is there, I am convinced that it is.

But on principle, I want ACT there, as the Greens would have Labour smoking dope, I'd like ACT there breathing fiscal responsibility into National. Sorry Nandor, your breath, well it stinks.

Geez, glad you're not my speech writer Adolf - you'd be getting it wrong so often you'd be fired!

Jordan must have lost his smugness somewhere. Has anyone seen it?

Hello Jordan!! Your Boss just went on RLW News to tell the world that she s NOT going to resort to negative campaigning. Does that mean she is going to tell Cullen and Mallard to do it all for her?

Jordan, were I your speech writer, I would hand hand you a blank sheet of paper.
