Labour’s Spin Doctors Risk it All!

Labour’s Spin Doctors Risk it All!

Destiny New Zealand candidate for Waiariki Hawea Vercoe is amused but not surprised by Labour’s latest approach to this election.

“Labour’s latest ‘commitment’ seems to be to try and instil fear into the electorate with their “Don’t Risk it All” stickers that have been pasted onto their billboards”. But this is a slogan that Mr Vercoe believes will work against them.

“The present state of morality in this country has been driven to the brink by this Labour – Greens & Progressive government, along with the ‘all important’ confidence and supply given by United Future.”

“In the last three years we’ve seen the prostitution law reform bill, the civil unions bill, the relationships bill, anti-smacking bill, and an inquiry into lowering the age of consensual sex to 12. We, the citizens of New Zealand can ill afford another three years under such an anti-family regime – we need to think about what’s important and consider our “Destiny” Mr Vercoe says.

Mr Vercoe suggests “Family orientated “Values Voters” beware - Labour themselves have given you a clear warning - “Don’t Risk it All” – the under lying message – “Don’t vote Labour”. On this occasion Labour’s spin doctors have been too clever for their own good – Helen won’t be happy – again!
