Now You Know Why........

I thought it strange at the time that Helen Clark she would go out on such an apparent limb as to publicly endorse the use of push polling by Labour.

Now you know why Clark wants to use push polling.




She thought her gang of thieves was going to get away with some more tax payer funded election spending over and above the legal limit. Bad luck Helen. The moment you try it on at least 55% of those polled will write down the questions, diary note the event and send you off to the commission.

Excuse me if I chuckle but her scrawny arse by now must be shredded from the tooth marks inflicted by her very own Electoral Finance Act.

The PSA have already used push polling this year.Their UMR managed poll asking people if they want tax cuts if it means civil servants will lose their jobs and servicres will be slashed can only be viewed as push polling.

The only "gangs of thieves" mentioned in the article are NZ First and National, Adolf...

BB: apart from maybe ACT, which party could this alleged PSA push-polling be directed against? Surely National isn't planning to fund tax cuts by slashing public services? Or Honest John Key would have told the voters already?

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Can we anticipate a poll funded by the EPMU which asks "Would you vote for National if you knew John Key was insider trading Tranzrail shares while he was an MP?"

That's about the level they are at and such a question is likely to come out of their drainstorm today in wellington.

Milt, remind me again of the connection between 'push polling' and National. The connection which does not exist.

Barnsley Bill said...

Good morning PM, you and I both know if national get in they will slash the civil service.
I welcome this.
After nine years of unfettered growth any business should have a cup of tea and look at whether they are spending wisely. Almost every day another story pops into the media about profligate waste.
We can list them and discuss but I would suggest it would take us many weeks to get through each example of waste. Just this week we have sparc and their gajillion dollar website, last week it was falling down schools (but we have doubled spending in education).
The tax cuts are irrelevant to me. But Cullen has allowed govt expenditure to double in nine years, while the health system and education system are failing does not suggest wise fiscal management.

We know it, yes - but a lot of dumbasses out there obviously don't. Key should be up-front about what he's planning with the voters, so they can decide whether they actually want what he's planning or not.

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Milt, they've already decided. They'll take anything. Anything at all. Anything is better than the socialists.

They'll take anything. Anything at all.

Couldn't have explained National's current high poll ratings better myself, Adolf...
