I note with interest that the Yahoo Xtra site is running a "news poll" with the question being:
"Should other countries intervene in Zimbabwe?"
The responses, as at 20:45 are, yes - 8789 or 88%, no - 943 or 9%, and not sure - 281 or 3%.
As this is a fairly non political poll, and as such is probably free from the bulk voting of labour supporters, this probably reflects the atitudes of the readership. However I can't help but wonder if the "yes to no" ratio would be so large if the question was something like:
"Do you think NZ troops should be part of any intervention force sent to Zimbawe to overthrow Mugabe?"
