In case you’ve not seen it

I am sure most have seen this on other blogs, but somehow I feel the need to have it here for the record.

    I prefer the Central Christchurch Labour sign:

    Labour.
    Burns.

    On a slightly related matter:

    TVNZ reminds us that Helen Clark has set the agenda of the election as TRUST.
    The Colmar Brunton poll of voters shows that the Greens are the most ‘trusted’ with Jeanette Fitzsimons in the lead.

    From TVNZ’s Site:

    Greens co-leader Jeanette Fitzsimons was the favourite on 64%.

    She is followed by Helen Clark on 59%, John Key on 57%, Pita Sharples on 54% and Rodney Hide on 50%.

    But Jeanette Fitzsimons lead only translates to less than 6 percent of the vote (according to the figures as of now on this blog).

    The main parties are neck-in-neck in the poll, which does not translate in current stated voter preference – 50% (N) 35.6% (L).

    Trust may be the PM’s spin, but the figures obviously indicate that it doesn’t resonate with the electorate.

    Hardly surprising when Readers Digest trust polls (for what they are worth) indicate what we all know in our gut – that politicians are not to be trusted.
    Remember the old joke?:
    How do you tell if a politician is lying?
    …Their mouth moves.

    Shame David didn’t hat tip us though – I emailed it to him last Thursday.

    The first time I saw the “Labour Burns” sign I thought someone was playing a joke. I mean, seriously, did they not think about that one?

    They don’t appear to think about anything else they do.

    I just wish I could put a copy of that bill board on my front fence! where can you get them from.

    Try contacting the Christchurch and Hamilton electorate offices respectively and offering your front fence.

    Yeah, those plastic corrogated signs do burn quite well once going if you put a full flame bic flic under the bottom next to a wooden upright- or so I’ve heard. I imagine it must be especially satisfying in Mt Albert.

    My email inbox is a disaster at the moment with 3,500 to process. So yes Maddy did send it in first but I’ve yet to respond to thank her – but will do so.

    National’s Whanganui candidate billboard would be quite apt too.

    Anyone got a photo?

    You’ve got it all wrong – it’s a message specifically intended for righties.

    As in: “Vote LABOUR, Moron!”

    LOL – was I really that bad?

    My legal work is mostly in the protection of Intellectual Property so I tend to have a stronger sensitivity to it. That and of course I always have one eye on the hit counter.

    Who is the Wanganui candidate?

    Has anybody driven north through Ohaupo, south of Hamilton?
    There is a labour billboard of helen that has been defaced with the word “HOMO”
    Do the locals know something about helen that the rest of the country doesn’t?
