Cunliffe against personal responsibility over billboards

“Cuddle a Crim” Cunliffe advocates against personal responsibility over billboard signs

The accusation by David Cunliffe that the Conservative Party is subscribing to a surveillance society by protecting its billboards via the use of motion sensor cameras reveals an anti-personal responsibility position by the about-to-be-retired Leader of the Opposition, and an exercise in Mr Cunliffe cuddling the criminals, and encouraging more hoarding vandalism” says Steve “Waitakere Man” Taylor, David Cunliffe's Conservative Party opponent in New Lynn.

“I am aware of how desperately short of money the Labour Party is for this Election campaign, using recycled billboards, and not being able to afford decent hoarding wood, so any extra expenditure for security is clearly out of the question for them".

“I am also mindful that the concept of anyone taking personal responsibility for their belongings is an ideological step too far for the “if one breaks it, we all break it” mentality of the NZ Labour Party.

“The fact is, I am responsible for my Electorate billboards in New Lynn, and if I want to invest in equipment to protect that which is mine, bought and paid for, then I don’t need the permission from someone who is a walking political apology to do so”.

"While I'll be watching my billboards, I suspect Mr Cunliffe will be watching his back, because in 24 days time, the Labour Caucus will indeed speak as one voice, and the words will be 'You're fired!".

New Lynn Candidate,

Professor Ian Shirley: The Budget That Failed Auckland

The 2016 budget offered Auckland nothing in the way of vision or hope and it continued the National Government’s threats against the Auckland Council. Threatening the Council with over-riding its democratic processes if it fails to release land for housing is a bullying tactic aimed at diverting attention away from the fundamental problems with housing in the region.

Shortly after the embargo lifted at 2pm news organisations started filing reports claiming that health, and to a lesser extent housing and education, were the ‘big winners’ out of the Budget.

Max Rashbrooke On The 2016 Budget

The best label for this year’s announcement by Bill English might be the ‘Bare Minimum Budget’. It does the bare minimum to defuse potential political damage in a range of areas – homelessness and health are prime among them – but almost nothing to address the country’s most deep-rooted, systemic social problems. Indeed the Budget hints that these problems may get worse. More>>
