All Black Tour

All Black Tour


Where does the 'average Kiwi' stand on this year's controversial rugby tour of South Africa? With the help of a friend, I did a little to find out.

Last week, in Cuba Mall and later in Willis and Manners Streets, we stopped 50 passers-by at random and asked their opinions. Here are the results:

Cuba Mall

For: 37


Don't Know: 4

Manners Street

For: 32

Against: 13

Don't Know: 5

Willis Street

For: 35

Against: 11

Don't Know: 4

I feel these samples represent public opinion more accurately than any taken, say, inside a university. Why can't some responsible body go into the matter and take a large opinion poll? The result would show certain factions exactly where they stand.
