Goodnight Goff

Phil Goff will be having sleepness nights and watching for the smell of BBQ’s firing up. The latest Roy Morgan poll is out and it isn’t good news for Goff.

In mid July support for John Key’s Coalition Government is 57% (down 1.5%) comprising National Party 52% (down 2%), Maori Party 3.5% (up 0.5%), ACT NZ 1% (unchanged), and United Future 0.5% (unchanged) according to the Roy Morgan New Zealand Poll conducted July 6 – 19 – July, 2009.

Support for Opposition parties is 43% (up 1.5%); Labour Party 30% (down 1.5%), Greens 10% (up 2%), NZ First 2% (up 1%), Progressive Party 0% (down 0.5%) and Others 1% (up 0.5%).

Time is up for Goff. This week has been atrocious as he has been ankle tapped by his own team as they square off jockeying for him soon to be vacant seat. The knives will have been sharpened and this result showing Labour teetering on the edge of the abyss that are the 20’s is probably the excuse they need to shank him in the kidneys.
