On Sunday and Monday, residents in the Auckland suburb of Ellerslie opened their letterboxes to find Labour-branded pamphlets bearing a smiling image of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.
The pamphlets were emblazoned with messages including “our recovery is working” and “securing New Zealand’s recovery”.
The deliveries, in the Maungakiekie electorate held by Labour’s Priyanca Radhakrishnan, are a breach of advice to stay at home during level 4.
They’re not a breach of advice, they’re a breach of the law.
The first time it happened, you would assume it was a mistake.
But to have it happen a second time, and five days into a Level 4 lockdown?
