Labour’s latest billboard

August 27th, 2014 at 12:43 pm by David Farrar

Owly Images

This is not a parody. Iain Lees-Galloway posted it.

Good to have them be honest about the impact of their pro-union policies.

UPDATE: For the terminally stupid, this was a graphic posted to the Internet by Iain Lees-Galloway, not an actual physical billboard.

    You can’t be serious! They actually have a billboard that reads thus?? Or is it just in some online medium??

    Well, I suppose honesty is the best policy…but don’t tell anyone else at head office… ;)

    Also, this will probably be subject to accusations of ‘hacking’, as it clearly wasn’t intended for anyone to actually see… :D

    Sure this is a genuine posting by Lees-Galloway? Seems too comic to be true and the link doesn’t reveal much.

    It must have been posted by his jilted stenographer.

    I think you`ll find there’s a spelling mistake in this.

    They’ve left off the letter “n”, as well as a comma and the letter “s”.

    So they left there website wide open.
    They had a dead link to their advertisement.
    They post an image with exactly the opposite message they are trying to convey.

    I am beginning to see a pattern here

    I have no time for Lees-Galloway, but to be fair, he was commenting on (well trying to) on an ACC decision that loses jobs for a Palmerston North company. http://www.iainleesgalloway.co.nz/blog?view=21

    Whats next, Labour claiming they never actually posted it and it was hacked by the evil right ring conspiracy cabal?

    Shock horror at 6:00 pm news

    I hope that the stenographer still has a job, along with the failed Labour MP in the advert.

    He has tweeted: OK that image was pretty crap. To put it into context read this: http://www.iainleesgalloway.co.nz/blog?view=21

    “National takes more jobs from Manawatu.”

    I wonder how their Vote Positive campaign is going.

    Even when handed an issue on a plate – taking the contract away not on means job losses but weakens the viability of Enable – Labour manage to spill it in their lap, burn their crotch, and then try to avoid anyone noticing by dumping a jug of iced water on it.

    And his replacement “National takes more jobs from Manawatu” is even more inept. Large font National, small font Labour (showing post-election caucus sizes?) violates rule #1 of advertising: accentuate the…
