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!".

Steve "Waitakere Man" Taylor,
New Lynn Candidate,
Conservative Party of new Zealand

Gordon Campbell: On The Tokenism Of New Zealand's Role Against Islamic State

To date, the Opposition has continued to occupy itself with the marginalia of the issue. E.g. whether Key did or didn’t know whether Barack Obama would be present at the US briefing last week on IS, or whether New Zealand’s military involvement is or isn’t already a fait accompli.

It might be better to tackle the issue, head on. Our contribution against IS will be to send SAS forces to train the Iraqis? That’s like offering trainers to General Custer just as the 7th cavalry reached the Little Big Horn.
