NewstalkZB a bit behind the 8-ball on election date
NewstalkZB breathlessly reports that it thinks the election will be on November 8.
I picked November 8 as a date some time back.
Problem for NewstalkZB is that an election date that is not on a holiday weekend cannot possibly be before or after November 8, given that there is no way an election would be held on Labour Weekend - or after November 15 which is Canterbury Anniversary weekend. The ODT has already explained why some time back.
