Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: The latest political poll spells real danger to the Labour-led Government. After ruling NZ First out as a possible coalition partner by National, NZF has slumped to 3%.

Now while no one can ever rule Winston Peters out, to be polling this low 6 months out from an election suggests that they are in real trouble and NZF have gone backwards over the last 6 years on election day.

If NZF don't get re-elected, it's almost certain that a National-ACT Government could win.

With the Green Party increasingly alienating itself with fringe debates, Jacinda has run out of mates with populist appeal despite Labour climbing in the polls since her election.

Who could rescue Jacinda in a tight election that goes right down to the wire?

Step up the Māori Party.

If the Māori Party can field a strong candidate in Tāmaki Makaurau, beat Labour and bring in one MP off the Party-list, the Māori Party could be all that saves NZ from a National-ACT Government.

Interesting days ahead.

OPINION: Will Maori suffer more convictions from new sexual assault laws?
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: The new Sexual Violence legislation the Greens are pushing through Parliament has noble intentions to make the process less traumatic on victims, but by removing defences to rape to ensure more guilty verdicts are returned, the Greens could be setting up more Māori men for convictions.
OPINION: Kindness towards South Auckland whanau more important than ever
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: People are angry.
OPINION: Kelvin Davis has another terrible day at the office
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: I am honestly not sure who is advising Minister Kelvin Davis, but his surprising decision this week to attack People Against Prisons Aotearoa (PAPA) and refer their pamphlets calling on prison reform to the Police for supposedly inciting the prison riot at Waikeria prison is such a desperately wrong footed move one is left wondering what on earth he thinks he's doing.
