Labour's creepy illegal adverts

ACT on Campus have published one of Labour’s student brochures. It is seriously creepy, not to mention illegal. This is yet more evidence that Labour thinks electoral advertising rules don’t apply to them.

Just look at how tiny they’ve made the Parliamentary Crest. And if you look closely, you’ll see that the full crest isn’t even there! That isn’t a problem with my scanner, it’s the same on the original. It’s printed so small that only the inside “NZ HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES” text is present. No outline and no crown on the top.

There is also no authorisation statement and the Parliamentary Crest isn’t the same size as as the Labour log as required by Parliamentary Services rules. Labour should be made to withdraw and repay these brochures and they should be prosecuted for again breaching the Electoral Commissions rules regarding promoter/authoriser statements.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
