Labour trying to save state baches?

Labour has been boxed in by John Key into fighting for state house tenants.

They have even produced a lovely graphic to go along with it.

state house

That looks like a lovely state house, complete with deck, and outdoor wood burner and some lovely kids sitting on the deck and some towels rolled up in the background.

Is this a state house?

Well the lawn looks suspiciously like kikuyu grass, endemic near beaches these days, yes it is in the suburbs, but better than even chance this “state house” is near a beach.

Especially when you consider the outdoor wood burner on the deck and the towels in the background.   

If you do an image search in Google it doesn’t take long before you find out where the image comes from.


Not one mention of state house in the Keywords, plenty of mentions of holidays, summer, bach, etc. Even the title of image says “Kids playing on the deck in summer”

So is this a state house that Labour is wanting to save or is it just some pic they though looked nice and in their warped socialist house thought that’s what their nirvana dreamland state house would look like?

It isn’t a state house and neither are the kids state house kids. For a start they are all pretty pale.

The Labour party couldn’t even be bothered to pop around to a state housing area and take a photo of a REAL state house with REAL state house tenants!

Aren’t the state house tenants the ones who Labour says they really care about?

Tells us a lot about the state of the Labour party – they are lazy and disingenuous.

Nothing has changed. Fancy them starting off the year with deliberate deceitfulness and a lie.

Labour forelock tuggers are tweeting and facebooking flat out about this campaign and are passing on an image that is a fake state house photo with fake state house kids.

It is the lack of detail which undoes you in politics, and once again Labour has been caught out using stock images that are wrong.

If they wanted a more accurate picture of what they are trying to save then perhaps they might like to use this image.
