A New Public Image Being Born?

Recieved today – and like John Key’s mysterious Standard & Poors “email” – my source will remain anonymous as well…

I assume the above three images depict the billboard facings coming down – not going up.

Hmmmm, obviously the “artist” had a point to make about our Dear Leader, and not the local candidate? It will be interesting to see what other graffiti makes it on to National’s hoardings.

It is also interesting to note that, this graffiti aside, there seems to have  been remarkably little vandalism toward political hoardings. Are people that apathetic toward the 2011 election that even the vandals can’t be bothered?!

You have to wonder what they are putting into our drinking water…

    I saw a few Nats hoardings in Henderson, Auckland. with a gaping hole in place of John Key’s mouth. They gentlemanly left Paula Bennett’s face intact though.:)
    It’s a change from the last byelection where I saw many Labour’s and Hone Harawira’s hoardings totally vandalised.

    Interesting, Tammy…

    I’d be curious to hear from other folk in other areas as to what is happening to hoardings. I spoke to one Party activist who was erecting a new hoarding and he agreed that vandalism had been minimal thus far. He said he was dreading the end of the RWC, and was predicting a return to normal damage to election hoardings.

    It seems curious; Key is attracting more attention than other National party candidates. I wonder if public attitude is starting to “turn” on this man?

    I think I’ve seen one knocked over, but not many. not like last time. I feel like painting FIBBER on them as well!
