As regular readers will know Scott Simpson is a long time friend of mine and perhaps the longest term friend in the current National caucus.
There hasn’t been a donnybrook in National politics that hasn’t had the hand of Simpson in it. He is a master of the dark arts.
Being election year you tend to get a lot sign vandalising, it is certainly something candidates have to deal with.
It is also a great way to get positive coverage from a negative event. It certainly worked well in the old Eden electorate days with Scott Simpson marshalling the troops for the running battles in the streets around signage.
