Hi David.  The Anglican and Methodist appear to have entered the election campaign, at least in Chch.  These huge 3-hoarding wide landscape erections (all with “Oops” but variant wording) have appeared at numerous church sites in the city, with various anti-Govt messages (such as national debt etc not just social policy or poverty as canvassed by the Sallies sometime sin a political framework).  Haven’t seen this before. I have sited them at two main Anglican and one Methodist one, so it is obviously coordinated.  

That reminds me that I must find time after the election to work on a members’ bill to remove tax free legal status from churches in New Zealand. They should have no special status beyond that of any other NGO.
