All Dirt, No Gold

God only knows how much taxpayers' money was wasted by Labour trying to dish dirt on John Key. This morning's Herald-DigiPoll demonstrated there was no pay dirt for Labour. Precisely the opposite in fact, as National's lead increases and Labour's slide to oblivion continues with all their potential coalition and support partners are obliterated - evinced wonderfully here:-

There are no figures shown for ACT which leads me to believe Sir Roger does not have the broad appeal for which nostalgic Actoids had hoped.

This is rapidly turning into an FFP election with the undecided vote reducing to just 11% compared with last week's 13%.

Taking a guess at party votes for ACT, MP, Dunne etc, we have the following result. It looks like Clark will be on the spit roast at Goff's barbecue

Party name Party Votes won Party seat entitlement No. of electorate seats won No. of list MPs Total MPs
% of MPs
Act New Zealand 1.50% 2 1 1 2
Jim Anderton's Progressive 0.00% 0 1 0 1 * 0.81%
M�ori Party 3.00% 4 6 0 6 * 4.88%
New Zealand Labour Party 35.70% 46 0 46 46
New Zealand National Party 51.40% 67 0 67 67
United Future New Zealand 1.00% 1 1 0 1
Totals 92.60% 120 9 114 123

...Labour trying to dish dirt on John Key.

I guess it's a shame for National that Labour is dishing factual dirt, as opposed to the vague and incomprehensible rumours of dirt that Fairfacts has come up with a couple of posts down. Labour really is better at this stuff.

I guess it is a shame for Labour that the country is seeing through the nasty smears, the corruption and the manipluation.

I suppose Clark will be down the bottom of the garden this weekend?

Jim Anderton will be pretty happy with this result - indicating that he's .81% of an MP. History would tend to suggest that he's typically only 0.1% of an MP.

God I hope that poll is accurate.
If the Greens are gone I will celebrate for weeks.

I will celebrate with you Mr Tips. And hopefully 99% of voters will join us.
