Why does Labour break the law?

via the tipline

I think Parliamentary Services and the Electoral Commission ned to look into this. There is growing evidence that in this by-election but also in the local body elections that Labour is using considerable parliamentary resources in order to campaign on behalf of candidates.

I think someone local is going to need to lay a complaint about the unauthorised advertisements. Of course getting the Police to prosecute is another matter entirely…they still haven’t done anything about the outstanding complaints from the last election.

This photo was taken in the window Rino Tirikatene and Lianne Dalziel’s Electorate office this afternoon of Poto William’s Billboard for the by-election in Christchurch East. 

Note the lack of authorisation statement on the poster (as well of course as the location!)

    The irony is that the left are ALWAYS the first to be crying foul and calling for inquiries to ‘hold the government to account’ for the slightest misdemeanor – albeit real or fantasy! Yet another case of do as we say, not as………………

    Why do they break the law ?, that’s an easy one, because they get away with it.

    I wonder if Poto will have a smile on her face when she sits in the House, don’t think so?

    Dalziel dosn’t even resign until the weekend.

    • Col

      Yes, she wanted to be paid as an MP and slip into a job as Mayor without losing any wages, cheap shit. I would piss myself if she lost.

    Another Photoshop – wait until you see her in real life – UGH.

      I thought she was bad now, you mean she will look worst than, is it Felton?

    The questions we are asking (at Curryleaf’s office) are – “What is going to be the victory margin? Can potato beat dazzling Dalziel’s margin or not?”. I recommend National to withdraw their candidate to save time and money….
