In the latest edition:

Rolling poll - It's a cliffhanger

National went within a breath of claiming the lead in our rolling poll of polls after this week’s New Zealand Herald Digipoll gave them a four point lead over Labour. Today’s NBR poll will put National in front.

NZ First continues its steady climb towards 10 per cent and is on the cusp of being a mandatory part of any Government. The Greens are holding above 5 per cent - just – although the polls seem to wildly vary for them between 3-4 per cent at one end and 6-8 per cent at the other. Given their strong youth vote we suspect a methodological cause. Are all the polls picking up the time when the young are most likely to pick up the phone? Or weighting cellphone calls enough? Or at all?

ZHOOSHED UP

We’ve added a little colour and kept your edition easy to read on screen.

PROGNOSIS

The OECD checks out the NZ economy. There’s something in it for everyone: we get a thumbs up and a few suggestions to do better.

MEDIA GOSSIP

The Herald sexes up its Lions coverage.

The Lobby Edition is a complimentary, condensed edition of the paid-subscription only Governor’s Edition published last Tuesday.

Gordon Campbell: On The Politicising Of The War On Drugs In Sport

It hasn’t been much fun at all to see how “war on drugs in sport” has become a proxy version of the Cold War, fixated on Russia. This weekend’s banning of the Russian long jumper Darya Klishina took that fixation to fresh extremes. More>>

Binoy Kampmark: Kevin Rudd’s Failed UN Secretary General Bid

Few sights are sadder in international diplomacy than seeing an aging figure desperate for honours. In a desperate effort to net them, he scurries around, cultivating, prodding, wishing to be noted.
