Spreading the message.

DPF has jumped on the *news* story that a few of us members of Young Labour are in trouble for *defacing* the Timaru CBD with Labour stickers.

The headline in the local paper read: "Goodhew lambasts Labour over posters "

I dont know about posters, I have seen those stickers and the are not that big, rather they are the size of a credit card. Seems the local Nat candidate is getting his nickers in a twist over the fact that on our recent Clarion Tour we let the good folk of Timaru know some of the successes of the Labour government. Like the fact that under Labour the unemployment rate is 3.8% whilst under National it stood at 7.6%, like how Labour kept NZ out of Bush's Iraq war whilst National would have taken us in, like how under Labour there are 6000 apprenticeships whilst under National there where nil.

I can understand why Aoraki National candidate Jo Goodhew would find the stickers "Shameful" - the remind people just how "shameful" the National government was.

Well the next day another story appeared revealing just how much of a beat up it was. You can see a pic of the offending stickers here.

"A great fuss about nothing is how Labour electorate chairman John Gardner describes the fuss over the Labour Party stickers defacing Stafford Street bollards."

Activism in action I say.


  • Joe Hendren has a good blog on the Nat candidate there.

  • Jo is a woman, not a man.

    The reason it is news worthy because staff and Ministers from your own party blamed you for it and said how upset they are.

    Nice try to divert attention, but I suggest you talk to Mr Sutton and his staff.
