Yes, Madeline, I did hat tip you but for those who are interested this was off Andy Moores site ( cant remember which one) but heres the Labour Burns billboard with the flames for those who haven’t seen it…
TVNZ reminds us that Helen Clark has set the agenda of the election as TRUST.
The Colmar Brunton poll of voters shows that the Greens are the most ‘trusted’ with Jeanette Fitzsimons in the lead.
From TVNZ’s Site:
Greens co-leader Jeanette Fitzsimons was the favourite on 64%.
She is followed by Helen Clark on 59%, John Key on 57%, Pita Sharples on 54% and Rodney Hide on 50%.
But Jeanette Fitzsimons lead only translates to less than 6 percent of the vote (according to the figures as of now on this blog).
The main parties are neck-in-neck in the poll, which does not translate in current stated voter preference – 50% (N) 35.6% (L).
Trust may be the PM’s spin, but the figures obviously indicate that it doesn’t resonate with the electorate.
Hardly surprising when Readers Digest trust polls (for what they are worth) indicate what we all know in our gut – that politicians are not to be trusted.
Remember the old joke?:
How do you tell if a politician is lying?
…Their mouth moves.
Yeah, those plastic corrogated signs do burn quite well once going if you put a full flame bic flic under the bottom next to a wooden upright- or so I’ve heard. I imagine it must be especially satisfying in Mt Albert.
Has anybody driven north through Ohaupo, south of Hamilton?
There is a labour billboard of helen that has been defaced with the word “HOMO”
Do the locals know something about helen that the rest of the country doesn’t?
