The National Party have reverted to type.
They’re back to stoking the politics of fear and division.
Anyone who thought that things might be different under Key were today proved wrong when David Farrar, Kiwiblog author and National Party HQ staffer, launched a billboard campaign attacking Helen Clark, Winston Peters and Peter Dunne – likening them to a number of infamous dictators.
The tasteless billboards are reminiscent of the Iwi/Kiwi ones run by Brash and National at the last election.
The Free Speech Coalition is little more than a National Party front, and it’s well known that Farrar has been working on this project during his employment at National Party HQ.
John Key’s been keen to try to keep himself clean. I wonder how he feels about all the mud now being thrown by Farrar. I wouldn’t be surprised if this comes back to bite National.
UPDATE: In fact one of the billboards has already been pulled. It was erected on a school, who demanded that it be removed.
