Rickety rickshaw in danger of losing driver

Quote of the day from Claire Trevett:

If polling tracks were Roads of National Significance, then National is in a people-mover on the Waikato Expressway, occasionally zooming up and down gentle inclines but confronting little that has yet forced it to alter its speed.

Labour, meanwhile, is clinging to a battered rickshaw rattling along pothole-ridden, precipitous back roads hoping like hell to hit a flat stretch. Alongside are the outriders of the Greens and NZ First, trying to pop the rickshaw’s tyres so they can purloin its passengers for themselves. . .

Not only is Labour’s rickshaw rickety, its at risk of losing its driver and it’s doubtful if the party has the resources required to make it more road-worthy.

If it lost a wheel, it couldn’t hope for any help from potential allies because most loss of poll traction for Labour is likely to result in gains for them.

    Methinks that the Labour & Greens message that they are sending out is mephitc and the voters smell this and do not want a bar of it.
