Christian Party Welcomes First Post-Election Poll
CHP Welcomes First Post-Election Poll
Graham Capill was delighted to learn that the Christian
Heritage Party out-performed NZ First in the first Colmar
Brunton Poll of the year.
The Christian Heritage Party had
2.1% in the Party Vote, whilst NZ First got just 1.1%.
Capill said, “When you consider the resources that the
Parties which are in Parliament have and the opportunities
they are given to be proactive over issues before
Parliament, they have a distinct advantage in out-performing
parties outside of Parliament. We therefore welcome the
news that we are ahead.
“It is disappointing that TVNZ
continues to base its reporting on the last election. That
is now an out-of-date poll and if a Party, like ours, does
well we believe it is worthy of being reported,” Mr Capill
The Christian Heritage Party will be taking up that
issue with TVNZ.
“The Party has consolidated since the
election and now has a strong team committed to crossing the
5% threshold in 2002. We expect this poll will be the first
in a number of positive developments,” Mr Capill

Gordon Campbell: On The Eruption And Tourism Safety
Adventure tourism is a central theme in New Zealand tourism, and by definition, adventure always includes a certain level of risk. That said, New Zealand itself is also at risk of being seen as a tourism destination where commercial factors – rather than safety factors – are routinely allowed to determine the point where the boundary line of acceptable risk is being drawn.
