An activist orchestrates the temporary alteration of National billboards and John Key’s response is that:
There is no room for negative campaigning in New Zealand.
This within hours of the National Party research unit shopping a dirt story on the cameraman who recorded Key’s conversation with Banksie (which I’ve been told is damaging due to the realpolitik cynicism displayed by Key).
Well that’s ironic isn’t it.
On a not so lolz note, it’s disgraceful Russel Norman has stood his EA down because of the political activism of her partner – if a private employer had done that her union would be tearing them a new one right now but I suspect that Russel’s not going to let a few principles stand in the way of the centrist swing vote his party’s currently taking from National.
I guess he and John aren’t so different after all.
