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,
