Molesworth & Featherston (Weekend) - 29 July 2005

Molesworth & Featherston - Weekend Update edition

Business and Political News
29 July 2005

In the latest edition:

Can we just say we told you so? Thanks

Not a ripple of surprise among our readers, we trust, at the news this week the election will be held on September 17. We’ll update our exclusive rolling average poll of polls early next week with fresh data from virtually all the major polls.

With two new polls this Friday in the Herald and NBR, and Thursday’s TV3, it’s already clear Labour is roaring back to the front. But keep your eye on the coalition options. Some polls are clearly showing volatility. But once we average them out with the exclusive algorithm, and take into account the ability of National or Labour to find a majority, the real movement has been comparatively glacial.



As a fresh round of polls charges the start of election season, National and Labour begin to release strategic new policy.


Is Brad Pitt fat? A lobby group wants to ban ads for junk food and keep it out of the playground, but it can’t back up its claims about fat kiwi kids.


Research companies have the technology, but broadcasters and agencies resist making minute-by minute viewing figures available.

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