Peters upset with ONE News trust poll

Published: 6:56PM Tuesday October 07, 2008 Source: ONE News

Winston Peters is dismissing the results of a poll showing him to be the least trusted of party leaders.

The ONE News Colmar Brunton poll showed less than one in five people, 19%, trust the New Zealand First leader.
But Peters called the poll "a shaff".

He was not interested in the results, telling ONE News reporter Jessica Mutch that she is a "drongo".

The most trustworthy party leader was Greens' co-leader Jeanette Fitzsimons, trusted by nearly two thirds, 64%, of those sampled.

Fitzsimons reacted much more favourably to the results.

"Wow that's pretty nice," she says.
Fitzsimons is followed by Helen Clark on 59%, John Key on 57%, Maori Party co-leader Pita Sharples  at 54% and Act leader Rodney Hide at 50%.
Clark has stated that the 2008 election is all about trust so the poll put the issue to the test - ranking which political party leader New Zealanders trusted.
