Serious Blow To The National Led Government: - A TV3 political poll has placed a Labour led Government well ahead in the run up to this month’s general election.
Labour has 41 percent support - while National has 28 percent. National’s support has slumped since its star billed APEC period. And the 13 point gap has rattled the Beehive.
TV3 began polling last Monday, the day the AllBlacks lost to France and polling continued until Thursday the day the AllBlacks lost to South Africa. However, TV3’s political commentators say the poll is not all due to the AB’s woes.
Labour has 41 percent support [up 4], National 28 percent [down 5], ACT 10 percent [up 1 percent], Alliance 7 percent [no change], NZ First 6 percent [no change], Greens 2.9 percent [up 0.4].
Support transferred to seats in the House:
Labour 5 MPs
Alliance 9MPs
Greens [if it wins Coromandel] 4 MPs
NZ First 8 MPs
National 35 MPs
ACT 13 MPs
United 1 MP.

That tally up with 121 MPs in the Parliament - this is because Peter Dunne is expected to win his seat but bring no extra MPs into Parliament as United’s party list support is almost zero.
A Labour led Government would have 64 seats in the House. National/ACT/United would have 49 seats. New Zealand First would be sidelined with 8 seats and have no affect on the Government.
Prime minister Jenny Shipley is seeing her popularity fall. Preferred Prime Minister stakes Helen Clark leads on 21 percent with Jenny Shipley back on 19 percent [down 3.
In all other categories Jenny Shipley shows her favour is slipping.

An 18 year old has been arrested for vandalising Labour candidate Chris Carter’s hordings in west Auckland. Carter says the hordings are expensive at $140 each - he has lost 19 in the past weeks.

Three men have been arrested in the latest Home Invasion case on the weekend. A 69 year old man is recovering in hospital after he had boiling soup poured over his face, was kicked in the hip, and was slashed repeatedly with a machete.

Microsoft is predicted to show a fall in stock values after a Court ruling found it had illegally imposed a monopoly against consumers. Its Windows 2000 system software is now expected to be released later than expected - now in February.

Vietnam is experiencing the worst floods in over 100 years. 500 people have died and 7 million people are homeless. Hue in the central provincial areas is worst hit.

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