Labour candidates spray paints wrong Facebook address on his van

Labour’s candidate for Botany has already been talked about in relation to his at least once today. Jami-Lee Ross has also talked about this. However, upon seeing this, I did a little digging to try and find Tofik’s social media accounts. When you search for him on , the first return that comes up is his personal profile, that is pretty locked down. Normally if you are going to do that, somewhere on that profile, that wasn’t locked down, you would have a link to your page, so people could find it easily. On that note, there was a photo of Tofik’s new campaign van, which had a logo and address on it.

Great I thought. That will make finding his facebook page easy. So I typed it in,www.facebook.com/Mamedov.Botany But no, it redirects to my timeline. I asked a number of friends to try the link, and it redirects to their timeline as well. So the address that Tofik has printed on the side of his van is incorrect.

I did manage to find his Facebook page in the end, www.facebook.com/pages/TOFIK-Mamedov, which is nothing like what he has written on the side of his van. I am not sure how this could have happened. Surely it would have been checked before sign-writing it on to the side of his van?

I can’t work out how you could possibly spray paint a Facebook address on your van, and not actually have the right address.

    Labour has resigned itself to supplying the comedy in this election. Well done, please do keep it up. Wants to run the country, can’t even get a sign right.

    After watching the antics of liarbour, the gweens and fat Nazi party I think New Zealand politics is funnier than Monty Python’s Flying Circus.

    Given Tofik Mamedov’s precarious grasp on literacy, it is not surprising that he can’t write his facebook address correctly.
    The calibre of Labour candidates is just embarrassing.

    Please Sir, don’t insult the noble Circus, they were infinitely funnier; the NZLP isn’t even remotely in the same league….

    You are so dam right Komata, what a silly bunt I am. Monty Python were made up of highly intelligent gentlemen whereas the NZLP are moronic, clueless parasites that should be dwelling in a fetid swamp.

    Anybody that has tried to read anything he has written will not be surprised.
    Labour certainly seem to be struggling to find candidates.
    The Far North electorate Labour candidate is a first term councillor who it would seem is unhappy with the size of the trough that councillors feed from and is trying to jump straight to the big show. The bay of islands is already plastered with her vote for me posters.
    Which if memory serves is a bit early rules wise.
    No sign of Kelvin Davis at all. Which confirms what most of us think will happen with Labour in the northern maorimander seat.

    If you read his public fb I think you might find believing a lot easier.

    Well I searched for “Mamedov Botany” and found it straight away.

    I know the interweb thing can be baffling at times, but really…. even technophobe RRM knows typing in urls is, like, SO 2002, who’s giving Matthew Beveridge his i.t. advice?

    Actually … Isn’t Labour going to shut down FB in NZ ? Or did that policy fail in the internal polls and has been dropped ?

    Is that because he is all ‘woggy’ and stuff?
