    Rock on Westie team. Rock on.

    We’ve just finished the hoarding de-nailing, then tomorrow morning it’s calling and driving old people to the polls.

    I’m reminded of the rowdy but wonderful public meetings in the 1970s. And if you were lucky you got to have the Progressive Youth Movement, headed by Tim Shadbolt, roll up replete with long hair,leather jackets and knee high boots. Their favourite pastime was to disrupt political meetings chanting dah di dah di dah di dah (can’t remember the first words of the ditty) followed by “elections are a farce”.

    In those days going to political meetings was a must and the halls would be overflowing with Nats and Labourites competing with one another who could shout the loudest. Not much knowledge to be gained but a lot of fun with not much animosity on either side.

    Until Rob Muldoon came along…

    Good thing they appear to have the courtesy to not actually obstruct traffic. Last election there were Nats doing something similar for Melissa Lee at the corner of St
    lukes and New North Rd but actually obstructing some traffic and based on the whinging about it the next week I’m fairly sure it nudged a few swinging voters away from the Nats.

    That looks remarkably similar to Christchurch East-style campaigning :). Lots of fun, laughter, music, sign waving, loudness and getting out the vote!
