Care to spare a thought for how Phil Goff might be feeling this morning?
On second thoughts, forget about it. Let’s get used to the idea that in a few months he will be political dog tucker.
Alf confidently asserts this on the strength of news that the National government is trouncing Labour, according to the latest Horizon poll.
National has 10.2% more support than Phil Goff’s Labour, and is continuing to widen the gap, with its support up 2.2% since May against a 0.9% rise for Labour.
The only surprise there is that Labour was able to lift its support at all after dishing up that capital gains tax pap.
