Peter Wickham Comments On His Most Recent Poll

Intro and bottom line from Peter Wickham as published in The Nation News…


In the wake of the most recent NATION/CADRES poll, I have been asked frequently how I feel about the results of the poll.

I am not naive, so when a person asks such questions I appreciate that this is a tactful way of asking me my political opinion, which I maintain is irrelevant when it comes to a professional analysis of politics.

I can, however, disclose that while I don’t for one moment doubt the data that my company has produced, I was a bit surprised by the results, and the reasons for this reaction are perhaps worthy of discussion in these pages…

Bottom Line…

…The lesson in all this is clear. It would appear that the electorate has not yet made up its mind and is not prepared to change for the sake of change. As it waits to be convinced, improvements and deteriorations in the fortunes of the DLP will depend heavily on how well or how badly the Bees perform, hence the 2005 poll did not reflect the best of DLP times, but the worst of BLP times.

    Bring it on. It has to be in Oct or Nov this year.

    The Bees have all but given up. I cannot believe that stupid Mia will let Owen mess up her chances. When they loose she will have to start from scratch to gain pole position – I cannot see any of those owen dems lining up behind her.

    Who knows he may just do the prudent thing and throw in the towel rather than have his record destroyed by David thompson and the DLP.

  2. Whatever!

    Throw in de towel?
    A West Indian politician?
    Not bloody likely: he’d sooner collapse overe his desk, a la Tom Adams.

    THAT’s how we get rid of Wess Indyan politicians…DEATH do us part!

    Dem soah doan resign graciously.

    …. but still there is the recent Jamaica phenomenom indicating there might be hope …. and yes, then there is Panday …..

    I know, I know … hope springs eternal in the bosom of fools.

  4. Whatever!

    Careful what you pray for,son!
    Replace Owen WITH WHO?
    The replacement may be worse..

    Be careful what you pray for!
