    In those two polls, Labour rose and National, the Greens and NZ1st all fell.

    I thought what was most interesting was that NZ1st lost 8 points, described by our glorious MSM as a drop and the Greens lost 7 points described by the same unbiased and entirely factual MSM as a collapse.

    The loss to National and NZ1st was attributed to the Jacinda effect.
    The loss to the Greens was attributed to the Metiria effect.

    Way to go, MSM. They spin like political tops for their political masters and their corporate bosses.

    But hey! That Jacinda eh? 😄 Let’s Do This

    At least the media were not, by and large, repeating the dirty politics slandering that was going on. Some of those have been repeated here despite them not being substantiated.

    But it seems that those lies were enough to create pressure on her family and force her to resign.

    It is interesting that the debate about our welfare system was not picked up by the media.

    Did you know that someone on the benefit has to tell WINZ if they have a meal with family or are given a food parcel by their family. Apparently WINZ consider this financial help and it should all be declared.

    Maybe it was too hard for the media, or maybe it just wasn’t juicy enough and wouldn’t sell enough papers or make interesting air time.

    And what would happen if a free meal came a the way of a person on welfare? Is someone wemployed to work out the value and deduct the worth from next weeks benefit. How miserable does it become. Does that include money beggars sitting on the streets in full view of Winz police? How sick and petty.

    Drlivingstone, so which is it?
    Fake news or fact news?
    A link to this news so others can decide if it’s fake or fact if you please.

    Mommabear, I have read your posts for a few weeks and wonder how  (in a moment of importance) you will win any credibility.

    I suspect that, like me,  many are already bypassing your comments as being irrelevant.

    Prime Minister will look a complete fool if he partners up with the Green Monkeys

    They are as irrelevant as that other party that got erased in the last election.

    Winston has some great ideas .

    But re-entering Pike river is not one of them

    My family have ancestors lying at the bottom of the North Atlantic from World war two and so we accept that is their grave.

    There are Mines in the UK where bodies still lie and left to lie in peace.
