There is no excuse for this sort if inane law breaking.

The rules of this council are perfectly clear:

“Signs shall only be permitted in the two-month period prior to the election.”

Which is why my wife doesn’t have any signs up in this neighbourhood. Yet.*

Maybe the National candidate does not know the rules.

Perhaps he should ask the mayor.

What implicit pressure is placed on the council when the scofflaw is the mayor, his worship, himself?

I hope John Pagani writes a letter rather than just writes on his little read and obscure blog. That said it is nowhere near as outrageous as Labours repeated law breaking and probably the Electoral Commission would view it as an inconsequential breach caused by an enthusiastic volunteer.

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.  And 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 that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

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