Justin Hussein Lester?

Surely the first rule of campaigning in the 21st century is never, under any circumstances, publicly display a non-ironic image of your candidate in the style of Shepard Fairey’s iconic 2008 Obama Hope poster.


Also, I’m told they’re giving these tote bags away to voters in fairly clear breach of the treating provisions of the Electoral Act.

Although it’s doubtful any other campaign will lodge a complaint — from their point of view though I could imagine that the more people who get to see this stunningly ill-considered paraphernalia, the better for them. Thankfully I have a reasonable audience in Wellington.

Justin Lester’s starting to make Vic Crone’s campaign look like a case study in excellence.
