As predicted

As predicted by me on October 14 the vandals have struck:

Seven hundred National Party billboards across the country were altered by activists in a co-ordinated operation overnight.

The activists fixed new slogans over the billboards which say: “The Rich Deserve More” and “Drill it! Mine It! Sell it!”

An un-named organiser of the operation told?The Aucklander?National needs to be more honest in its campaign, and the new slogans reflect the truth which it says National is neglecting to mention.

Green Vandals

The Green party has been caught astro-turfing, their candidate in Hamilton got the sack for lying to a newspaper and now in Epsom they are attacking billboards of John Banks with illegal stickers.

It looks like the Green Party is being advised on electoral law by the Labour party.

Here is a shot I took this afternoon on the corner of Market Road and Great South Road. They have covered John banks’ sign with little green stickers.

A close up shows Green messages, with no authorisation statements in clear breach of electoral law. Not to mention the vandalism of another candidates sign.

Labour doesn't learn

Oh dear, when will these tools ever learn.

Labour has another social media campaign. This time to help them design some billboards.

After the failure of their Stop Signs campaign because they were illegal.

Clearly they are more broke than a third generation welfare?beneficiary?on the Monday after a Lotto jackpot draw.

Since they are likely to ?shut this down faster than a freezing works on a rainy day I suggest you save the images and I will put them up in a gallery here.

labour Billboard idiots

Superb timely marketing

This sign is now trundling around Auckland. For those who don’t know that is Mark Hotchin of Hanover Finance. Like Hell Pizza or loathe them they are superb at timely marketing. between them and Tui they have that area sown up.

Mark Hotchin is Greed at Hell Pizza

Kate throws a Tizzie Fit

Whaleoil’s spies tell me Labour’s Kate Sutton completely lost her rag at the local candidate’s meeting at the Eden Community Church yesterday.

Time was running out and candidates were asked to answer in three words whether they supported the anti anti-smacking referendum and whether they would vote with the public result.

Labour’s Kate Sutton started to read out the Labour spin on them making criminals of parents who give Tommy or Jenny a smack to teach them right from wrong.

The crowd say three words. Kate keeps going. They get louder: Three words. She digs down and deep. She’s got to get Helen’s spin out. The shouting reaches a crescendo.

Kate looks up, stamps her foot, yells out at the people whose vote she’s soliciting to scream that they’re being very rude. That she’s a young woman putting herself out there, and they’re being rude. She tells them shes not happy with them. She’s not saying anymore. The crowd clap that that the mad rant is over.

Kate sits down in a humpf.

It seems Kate Sutton went to the Tizard Charm School. The locals in Epsom better watch out as Kate tends to hurl all sorts of nasty allegations around when cornered like a rat.

The crowd of course was placated by their local MP, Rodney Hide, whose three words were “Yes and Yes”

Axis of Weasel luck out

New generation to fly party flag at electionLabour has ensured it will have an injection of new faces after the next election by abandoning its practice of ranking MPs ahead of other candidates, instead putting great emphasis on ethnic diversity. Its top-ranking new face… [NZ Herald Politics]

The Axis of Weasel did a stellar job of advancing their list placings. Jordan, especially, must be regretting felching his way round the European Parliament.

Jordan Carter #70
Kate Sutton #63
Conor Roberts #64

Of course Brenden Sheehan didn’t figure at all after I destroyed his credibility as a candidate. Other candidates that need to dust off their extremely thin CV’s include Mr Photoshop Brian Kelly, Judith Tizard, Darien “Smackhead” Fenton and Michael Wood.

If this is the result of “three years’ work – of recruitment, of candidates, identification, and so on” then they should sack their recruiters, and as for “generational change”, well, what a fucking stupid thing to say when your top newcomer is 62 year old Rajen Prasad.

With friends like these

Facebook is the gift that keeps on giving, especially when it comes to campaign moments. Here is Kate Sutton and the missing in action and soon to be ex MP for Auckland Central.

Two witches

Labour's Cunning Stunt backfires

In their desperate attempts to deflect their blatant breaches of the Electoral Finance Act Annette King was proudly displaying unauthorised leaflets that ?anyone can pick up from the National Party”

She told parliament;

Hon Bill English: Can the Minister confirm that the only egg around is the egg on Labour?s face, given that it spent 2 years lecturing everyone else on keeping the law after it had broken it in the 2005 election, then was the first to breach the Electoral Finance Act, which that party itself had passed; and why does Labour deserve not to be referred to the police like every other party will be?

Hon ANNETTE KING: I think I will wait to see whether there will be any egg on anyone?s face, because I have to tell the House that the National Party bumper stickers I am holding have no authorisation on them and no electoral agent on them. Any member of the public of New Zealand can pick them up right now, and they say ?Party vote National?. They are on their way to the Electoral Commission for it to decide whether there will be some egg on the National Party?s face, because its members are the ones who have been berating every other party in this House for not keeping to the rules.

As she was holding up the alleged bumper stickers.

Bill looked a little puzzled ? no such bumper stickers have been part of 2008 election campaign.

But wait there is more from the lying troll

Hon Bill English: Can the Minister confirm that the Electoral Finance Act was put together by Labour as a way of punishing its critics, that it was done so badly that all parties in this House, including her own, are struggling day by day to work out how to comply with it, and that the only exception is that Labour members believe they are above the law and should not be referred to the police when they break it?

Hon ANNETTE KING: First of all, the Labour Party does not believe it is above the law. I suspect that the National Party does, because it has had this material on its website since 12 January this year; the public can get it off the website, and it is not authorised as an election advertisement. Secondly, the Labour Party did not bring in the Act to regulate other parties in this House. The Act was brought in to address the old rorters across on the other side of the House, who were busy with their fingers in the pockets of big business, trying to buy an election, and who were caught out by very good detective work by the Green Party.

Hon Bill English: I raise a point of order, Madam Speaker. The Minister might want to correct the impression she has given the House. National has not used that kind of insignia for a long time, and the Minister has now just confirmed that she printed it off a website. It was not actually published, yet she claimed earlier it had been published and distributed.

The information that Annette King held up was some archived information off the National Party Website dating back to the 2005 Election. They are sad, desperate, stupid liars. No wonder 50% of the country want to get rid of them. Lying in the House is now the norm. Not only that the documents that King trumpeted in the house are from a website that actually does have an authorisation on it and therefore anything inside the website is automatically authorised.

Contrast that with Labour’s own unauthorised website that similarly contains policy details and brochures from 2005. Annette King should kick her researchers in the arse for landing her even deeper in the mire with that little cunning stunt.

Do not trust Labour they are liars.

Know your Weasel – slippery Kate Sutton

The furore over Labour’s Epsom candidate slippery Kate Sutton previous comments continues to grow. Another anonymous source within the Labour party with previous links to AUSA sent me this release this morning.

AUSA irate at Government?s betrayal of students

Kate Sutton [said the 2003 budget] ?may well rival some of the excesses of National Party in its heyday.?

?… the Government [has hammered] students … with massive cost increases? Ms Sutton continued angrily.

While students at the University of Auckland will be hard hit by this initiative, Ms Sutton also expressed concern and outrage for the impact this is likely to have on students in the nations other tertiary providers, whose fees have mostly been traditionally lower than in Auckland, and who will be hit even harder.

So an ‘irate’ slippery Kate blasted the Government as being virtually no different to National in the 90’s in a press release oozing anger. Now she wants to be a Member of Parliament and serve in a Government she has spent years slagging off. Why is this clown even a candidate for Labour? It’s a question a lot of people in the local party are asking.

I’m inclined to suggest it’s because slippery Kate is nothing but a two-bit, wannabe career politician who will whore out her ideals to anyone. When she’s talking to students she’s a firebrand leftist, when she’s out in Epsom she presents herself as a moderate who toes the party line. She will say anything, to anyone if she thinks it will advance her political ambitions. Labour can do better than the slippery Kate Slutton.
