Samuel’s Blog Weekly Poll: Westpac and St. George Bank Merging

It’s all done and dusted, and I can even use Westpac ATMs without being charged an “other bank ATM” fee which saves me from navigating the maze of construction works in Cooleman Court, but I’m still not entirely sure what to make of the merger between Westpac Bank and St. George Bank. So, I’ll ask you:

Is Westpac Bank’s purchase of St. George Bank…?

The results from last week’s poll were fairly split:

After a year of the Kevin Rudd Labor government, how do you rate their performance?

Total Votes: 26
Started: November 22, 2008

That said, if we treat “OK” as a neutral answer, then we have 16 people satisfied with the Rudd Government’s performance, and eight people unsatisfied. A 67%-33% split is pretty good in my books.

Davky also noted in the comments on last week’s poll that, for a first term government, they’re doing well on the “unity” front. I’d agree with that, although I probably do err on the side of “OK-Bad, but no worse than anyone else”, and I think I voted for the latter.
