With so many things going on at once, you might have missed some great moments during the election.
1: Crusher set up prayer:
Remember how Crusher attacked criticism of her praying as evil and pretended the entire event was a private moment that was interrupted by the media?
That was a lie…
…National set up the prayer shot and that claimed they hadn’t.
2: Set up Ponsonby Rd meeting:
It was supposed to be a spontaneous walk around with spontaneous locals, but it turns out Judith’s Ponsonby walk around thronged by supporters was actually set up…
First, the walk. It became obvious pretty soon after she started that the people she was ‘meeting’ were being positioned every 30 metres or so by an advance guard of party people. Worse, from the first man saying he was a member of the Bluegreens (the party’s environmental grouping) to each and every subsequent warm greeting, it became obvious these were National Party supporters.
…they can’t even pretend that there is genuine support for Judith in Auckland and have had to set it up. Jesus wept that’s embarrassing.
3: Hamish Price infects Emma Mellow:
The most toxic Right Wing attack stormtrooper National has online now that Cameron Slater is irrelevant is Hamish Price, here’s some of his greatest hits…
…isn’t he charming. Turns out National’s favourite attack dog is also Emma Mellow’s Campaign operative!
4: Religious cannabis prohibitionists big on gay conversion therapy
Oh and the person behind the religious rights campaign against cannabis, used to champion gay conversion therapy…
…oh of course he did.
