    Nice pics of them both aren’t they? Much better than the usual unflattering ones.

    Just saying 🙂

    I’ve seen a better one that says “Slave” “Labour”

    Policy Parrot. that’s pretty awesome

    Given that John looks a little like Gollum in that shot, can we fire up another one with something like “One brass ring” … “To rule them all”

  6. Bart 6

    Ooo, who authorised that please! Names and addresses!

  7. Tane 7

    Get a life Bart.

    [captcha: liar deficits… John Key’s tax plan?]

    Bart – who authorised you?

    “Given that John looks a little like Gollum in that shot …”

    Actual LOL moment there. Very good, Phil.

    Bart. It’s satire, not political advertising.

    Sorry but the JK photo is real, I mean you can see the wrinkles.

    But the photo of Helen, I mean please, it looks like it was taken 30 years ago and someone has airbrushed out all the bad skin, wrinkles, and spots even the teeth are all perfect. Compare it to the reality. It is borderline deception.

    Well Horis I personally think that people get just a little bit more than shrill when they attack Clark over a lot of things, such as “paintergate” or “corngate”. Hell, even the speeding issue isn’t something I think she should have to deal with.

    But it does strike me as odd that Labour afficianados won’t put an everyday photo of Clark in anything like this. I know HQ certainly refuses to, but it’s more than just a little bit like sitting in a lap and wagging one’s tale that the average rank and file supporter has to follow suit.

    Of course, I’m sure that Policy Parrot doesn’t care as long as it lines up with his spin of the day.

    Dean, sorry you were in moderation so long – you were caught in the D4J moderation trap.

    horisthebear, try not to think of every photo as a personal and you’ll find yourself cutting people a bit more slack 😉

    “Dean, sorry you were in moderation so long – you were caught in the D4J moderation trap.”

    Its cool. Anything to keep that guy out is fine by me.

    Oi Dean – maybe us lefties can vote based on people’s policies, not vanity, looks an vapid ‘ambitions’ 😉 I doubt many here give a toss what photo is used, it’s more about the idea in the image.

    Good that you’re speaking out about what’s really important to you though, brother.

    Matthew, that’s just really weak. I mean, you know that’s not an accurate representation of Clark. Why do you defend it? If Brash had ended up sporting a full head of hair both you and I wouldn’t have been able to hear for the cacophony of people laughing.

    So why is it ok?

    “Oi Dean – maybe us lefties can vote based on people’s policies, not vanity, looks an vapid ‘ambitions'”

    You’re right, John Key’s “ambition” is really bloody stupid. Unfortunately, so is the insistance that a photoshopped vanity photo of Clark. But I guess it doesn’t matter to you as long as you support their policies. Nice.
