Most Read Political Items on Scoop – Week Ending Aug 10

Most Read Political Items on Scoop – Week Ending Aug 10

Releases relating to Metiria Turei dominated the most read ranking political items published on Scoop in the last week.

Others to feature included the rather hopeful release from the Conservative Party about its chances of taking the Epsom electorate, and NZ First’s criticism of the Speaker around the handling of reports into the resignation of the Auditor-General.

There was also a great deal of interest in multiple items about the release of Labour’s policy on water charging, but as this was late in the weekly cycle none of them featured in the top four.
