iPredict Ep. 9: Bomber, Winston Peters, Selwyn Manning

iPredict Elections 2011 – Episode 9 with Bomber, NZ First leader Winston Peters, Selwyn Manning

Martyn "Bomber" Bradbury hosts the iPredict Elections 2011 series.

iPredict Elections Ep:9 Features Bomber Bradbury, New Zealand First leader Winston Peters and Selwyn Manning who debate the following issues:

Prediction 1: The iPredict Market is currently predicting New Zealand First will gain 4% of the Party vote, can NZ First break 5%?

Prediction 2: The iPredict Market is saying there is a 94% probability that John Key will have a public cup of coffee with John Banks - If National believes it has a majority, will National bother? And even if it happens, is it enough to save ACT?

Prediction 3: Treasury is predicting New Zealand's current account deficit will be 2.4% by the end of next year, while the iPredict market is predicting 3.35%. Is the Government's optimism terribly misplaced as we face global markets reeling from the fall out of 2008 collapse?

Plus each panelist will deliver a final prediction as well.

ipredict Elections broadcasts on Stratos TV accessed via Sky channel 89 & Freeview channel 21 each week-day evening at 7pm until the election campaign on November 26 2011.

It will feature: Martyn “Bomber” Bradbury, a rotating team of panellists, including NBR’s Matthew Hooton, Scoop’s Selwyn Manning, blogger Phoebe Fletcher,’s Bernard Hickey, Labour’s David Cunliffe, National’s Nikki Kaye,  Mana’s Hone Harawira and New Zealand First’s Winston Peters will debate and discuss key election issues using the daily predictions from the Scoop Link: iPredict website.
