MP Chester Burroughs and MP Chris Finlayson have been complaining their billboards have been getting damaged a that this damage costs them money, and inconveniences them. I struggle to feel empathy for the Nats when they intentionally block their competition.
On 20th August I was the first to deploy my Internet Mana billboard on Hollyford Drive in Manukau East electorate. The next Saturday the Nats had arrogantly blocked my Internet Mana billboard
I spoke with National party candidate for Manukau East MP Kanwal Singh Bakshi he explained to me how his billboards were being attacked. I explained we have been given strict instructions to leave other party billboards. I asked if he could move his billboard slightly to the right to avoid blocking the Internet Mana Billboard in the name of sportsmanship and chivalry.
I returned yesterday to find my billboard lying face down
We erected the billboard again
