Scoop Reactor for Week Ending 01.08.14: Colin Sinks The Worm

PRESS RELEASE: NZ Highs & Lows of the political week ending 01.08.14

John Key’s announcement that he won’t be helping the Conservatives into parliament was rated highly by New Zealanders last week.

The confirmation that Murray McCully will stand in East Coast Bays, the electorate he’s held since 1987, also sent the Worm soaring.

The lowest Reactor score this week goes to the Conservatives as Colin Craig Boasts he attracted more voters to his public meeting in ‘the South of the South’ than the leader of the Opposition.

John Key not only splits opinions along party lines but divides voters on Age and Gender, scoring well below the 50% line with women and electors under 35 years of age.

Gordon Campbell: On Labour’s Policy Resurgence, And Alex Chilton

For much of this year, almost all the diversity in politics has been down at the retail end, where apparent differences reside in the tone, and in details.

However, and only three months out from the election, there is finally some genuine good news. Twice this week, Labour has released policy that has well and truly gotten up the nose of the sort of lobby groups that it has spent most of 2017 trying to cultivate. More>>
