Abandon ship

The HMS National Party appears to be adrift and taking on water. No surprise to hear that another leak has sprung up. Strangely though, this one’s from the Northern Club.

A source there tells me that National will soon be launching a billboard campaign. Watch this space.

    Yeah, I heard the same thing. I’ve heard it’s got something to do with them having way more cash than they can legally spend in an election campaign period and being worried they’ll not be able to use it if the EFB extends that period to the start of next year.

    Are those posters with John Key quotes that are up around Wellington part of this campaign?

    I’m trying to imagine what a John Key Red/Blue billboard series would look like:

    formerly it would have been something like:
    Labour: $5billion more spent
    National: ?

    Now, for education would it be:
    Labour: NCEA, PPTA, NZEI,
    National: Macquarie

    Thats right Robinson , I’ve heard that to.
    National already have the large pile of money from their big business donors and they are very worried that they won’t be able to spend it if the EFB is passed. Thats why they are so desperate, and spending so much time drumming up support for their stand.
    The billboards almost won it for them last time, and they want to do that again. Because the EFB looks like its going to go through they’re going to have to get a billboard campaign out before the end of the year. We’re also going to be flooded with pamphlets and media advertisements.

    National may have money but not a single penny of it has been stolen from the taxpayer. Suck on that Robinson and Luke. Fuck the EFB, if passed into law by corrupt parties, right minded New Zealanders will just ignore it. The Courts are choked enough already.

    Murray, what about that $10,000? Or has that gone down the memory hole too?
