Election campaign continues

That probably sums up the campaign for a lot of people.


It is no surprise that more and more people are being turned off politics and can’t be bothered voting.

I really can’t see a party that deserves my vote yet, and they are getting less deserving by the day.

We really should have a vote of no confidence option on the ballot paper.

    I often chuckle when partisan voters come out with “you didn’t vote so you can’t complain”.

    I agree with Jo, I’m totally not interested in this election – tweedle-dum or tweedle-dee?
    The only reaction I have, is that I would like to see Gareth Morgan’s Party make the 5% thresh-hold. While I don’t share his views on many non-election issues, I believe he brings some refreshing thinking with some of their policies. Whether or not TOP succeeds this time, I hope they’re still there for 2020.

    That was a terrible debate on RNZ, Robertson ruined it with not answering a straight question and his rude interruptions so it was just a total waste of time. I guess when you have no policy beyond a working group shouting is probably your only option.

    I see from stuff.co the next leaders debate – tonite – is going to be streamed live from the stuff website & facebook from 6pm tonight.

    But ruff on the oldies? I can’t see in the online tv guide that it’s being broadcast on tv1 or tv3 & it’ll coincide with the news.

    Next Colmar Brunton Poll Result due out today too, according to Corn Dann last nite.

    I stopped listening to the parties weeks ago. Its all policy on the hoof and “what bribe do we offer today?” Starting 24/9 whoever wins will start walking it back and making excuses. Neither side are convincing.

    Clarke Gayford shows he is far too thin skinned – attacks Prebble for being old rather than actually debate what Prebble said about Ardern, which happened to be true;

    “In the article ​​​Prebble questioned Ardern’s fitness for office, claiming that at 37 she has “no real life experience” and has had an “undistinguished parliamentary career”.

    “US President Donald Trump proves daily that TV sound bites is not proof you can govern, Prebble said.”
