ACT Candidate David Seymour will win Epsom

ACT Candidate David Seymour will win Epsom


August 10, 2014. 10:20am

“This morning’s TV One Colmar Brunton poll shows that ACT's David Seymour will win Epsom," said ACT’s Campaign Manager Hon. Richard Prebble.

“The voters of Epsom have shown on three occasions that they are wise. They know how to vote tactically to re-elect a National Government.

“ACT expects David Seymour's election day vote to increase significantly from this poll.”

“There are plenty of other indicators that David Seymour will win in Epsom. He is the only candidate door knocking the whole electorate. David Seymour has won the Auckland Grammar straw poll with a 66% vote. The school straw poll has predicted the Epsom election result for the last few elections,” said Mr Prebble.

“The real significance of the Epsom poll result is that it shows votes for ACT will count.

“Voters all over the country can vote ACT with the full confidence their votes will go to re-electing a National Government and more importantly electing Jamie Whyte and a number of energetic ACT MPs with fresh thinking and new ideas.”

Werewolf: John Pilger, And Making War On China

In July, the New Zealand Defence Force is scheduled to join the latest round of Talisman Sabre, a huge training exercise that Australia carries out biennially in conjunction with all four arms of the US military.

Last time around in 2015, New Zealand contributed 650 personnel, 45 vehicles and two of our $NZ771 million dollar fleet of NH90 helicopters to this regional war game.

What’s weird is that Talisman Sabre is actually a rehearsal for an assault on China and its ability to defend itself. More>>
