Labour Miscalculates

The Hearld on Sunday has for the past three weeks been running a small article by Alice Hudson called The Spin. This asks some expert commentators for their views on big opinion forming events from the week that passed. Last week it was Lockie's reporting of comments from growers and Jeanette's bungy jump. Today Alice looks at Labour's attempted dirt-raking. How has it played? According to Dr Claire Robinson, Head of Massey University's Institute of Communication and Design (and soon to be communications manager at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade) "Labour's latest move had left it looking silly"...."It suggests that Labour is scraping the bottom of the barrel" ...."Kiwi voters were typically turned off by common or garden variety muck-raking".

Can the editors of The Standard draw the above to the attention of Batman please.
