ALCP says United Future Website Misleading

ALCP says United Future Website Misleading

The Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party is accusing United Future of misleading the public by using a foreign photo to portray apparent supporters, on its website.

What looks like a diverse bunch of United Future supporters, at first glance, is actually a foreign photo of people that have nothing to do with the United Future party.

The same photo used on their website also appears on www.centralchurchofgod.org/about and www.curtislaw.co.uk.

"How can anyone believe that United Future has widespread support when their group photographs are taken from foreign sources?" ALCP leader Julian Crawford said.

"Why could they not arrange their own photo-shoot of local supporters instead of using a group of actors? It seems like they are turning to foreigners to boost their perceived level of support."

ALCP is also calling on Peter Dunne to come clean on any affiliation between his party, Curtis Law Immigration Advice and the Central Church of God.
