Well that defence is shot to hell…why would he lie?

Good morning

Please find attached advice issued by the Electoral Commission on the election day rules for the by-election.  The advice outlines the key things that can and cannot be done before the close of polling at 7pm on election day.

We would invite you to share this information with your campaign team.  If you have any queries about activities on election day please contact the Commission.

Yours sincerely

And what did that advice say?



He clearly didn’t pass on the memo to the downtrodden minion writing his tweets .

How can we ever believe David Cunliffe when he flat out lies over such a little issue?

Someone who tells little white lies often develops a bad habit of telling great big whoppers.

So he’s bullshitting about not knowing the law. It’ll be great to watch Rebecca Wright door-stop him tonight and demand an explanation, or Paddy Gower chase him through Parliament Buildings; as if!

Maybe Cunliffe can appar on Campbell Live and get a great cuddle and a reach around just Len Brown.

No doubt the blogosphere will have to go large instead, but we’re not “media” according to Judge Blackie
