And now for something fluffy. That’s right, the fashion stakes count in the election as well.
According to one stylist National leader John Key needs to update his style. Stephanie Rumble, a top New Zealand stylist says:
“he hasn’t changed his appearance much since the election campaign started, but that Key’s look is very smart, but conservative. Rumble says he should add some contrast to his wardrobe.”
There is a degree of irony to that comment given the current JohnJohn ads. The need to update his appearance is in keeping with National’s dated-looking campaign launch though.
I think Maurice’s “foot-in-mouth” moment over road tolls and Lockwood Smith’s comments to the Marlborough Express point to National’s campaign faltering again.
