For those desperate to see an end to this appalling Government, the latest TV3 Poll putting Labour on 26% and National on 47% would have been pretty depressing.
It shouldn’t be.
The Poll was taken in the sugar high of the fawning media’s description of National’s budget as left wing and family friendly before the real criticism of how National have actually underfunded health by the tune of $2.3 billion was out.
This is also the Poll that 4 months out from the 2014 election was giving National 50%.
The latest UMR internal fortnightly Poll from Labour taken between 7th June – 15th June paints a completely different picture.
This was taken after the criticism of the budget and after Labour’s foreign student cutback policy.
National 42% (down 2)
Labour 32% (up 2)
Greens 13% n/c
NZF 9% n/c
The truth is the Corporate mainstream media want you to believe Bill English has won before the election is even held.
The truth is that if the youth of this nation rise up and participate and demand change, then the powerful crumble.
If the madness of National’s wealth illusion speculative property bubble housing crisis demands you to act.
If the horror of a suicide rate 3 times higher than officially acknowledged, 41000 homeless and 1600 dying from cold homes annually is unacceptable to you.
Then now is the time to put your shoulder to those political parties who guarantee a change of Government – Labour, the Greens or MANA.
We must refuse to allow the mainstream media to drain us of our hope that change can come.
The time to act is now.
