Hughes drops Labour in the poop

On Morning Report this morning after 7.45 Gerry Brownlee dealt to Darren Hughes, it was all pretty mundane but Gerry managed to get Hughes to talk too much.

Hughes reckoned that the fliers asking if people wanted the Labour propaganda were delivered free by his committed team of volunteers. A very dopey statement indeed, when trying to draw a line between campaigning and government literature.

So get this right, Labour Party functionaries hand delivered fliers for free on behalf of Parliamentary Services and it wasn’t campaigning!!!!!

I see a Tui ad coming up.

I agree with DPF this sort of material should be banned in the 90 days before the election. The only things MP’s should be advertising are the office details of their electorate office and those ads should be in grayscale.
