    I watched the programme live on Sunday night and found it quite funny. None of those guys seemed to have any time for Winnie at all not even Garner.

    Got to say Peters on Morning Report this talking to Geoff Robinson today was a very poor effort. The poodle is now like Mike Tyson was when he fought Lennox Lewis, out of his depth and past it.

    :lol:

    Yes, they do a good job of listing off the deceit and dissembling in such a way that no one in their right mind could doubt that Winston has been lying to the public and is guilty of the most rank hypocrisy.

    And alongside it are these poll results:
    - 10% will vote for NZF.
    - 15% give him a high approval rating.
    - 27% would accept NZF in a coalition government.
    - And 22% rate him a “saint” rather than a “sinner”.

    Now I know these polls aren’t scientific etc etc. But 10% will vote for him while 3 times that number will accept him in government.

    Winston’s core supporters aren’t, in the main, technologically literate. So where’s this support coming from? I’d posit an answer: Labour supporters (Interestingly the 27% who’d accept him in government is just a little less than the support Labour’s getting in the polls).

    That’s just pathetic (in the original meaning). Truly power at any price.

    The 500 spinmeisters and the threats put out by H1, and H2 are having a holding effect only!

    I still stand by my 55% National Party Vote for this election.

    And indeed I will put up $ 1500 as a wager on that one particular event,

    Are there any 9th floor stooges, or simpletons prepared to put their money wher their mouth is?

    Careful you don’t get Winston’s lawyer to hold the wager GM, that’s if any spineless Liarbour scrooge puts up the cash?

    You can buy a contract paying $1 for a Nat majority at iPredict, Glutaemus. It’ll cost you 25 cents at present so that’s 4:1 odds.
    If you’re serious about your $1500 wager, I’ll expect to see an order for 6000 units of this contract in the next couple of days. Otherwise perhaps you’re talking as much bullshit as those folks on the 9th floor?
    (and no – I don’t own any of those contracts myself so I have no interest in goading Glutaemus to bid the price up!)

    Notice how Garner completely rejected Sopers comment that Helen Clark was wrong not to allowing a bipartisan approach.
    I kinda detect that Garner enjoys the more ruthless mongrel campaign style.
    Says a lot about who he supports
