UPDATE: For those who are apparently still visiting this page in 2011, this post relates to the 2008 election. As a recidivist resigner (as Paul Henry called me in a recent interview), I thought I should make it clear that I have no plans to return to ACT in 2011 — and I imagine ACT has even fewer plans to invite me to. But they should think about running an update of this ad.
OK, OK, so it’s been harder for me to sit out an election than I thought. In the end I just couldn’t say no to a cause I believe in.
This, then, is the World Premiere of ACT’s new press ad. It runs in the NBR tomorrow.
I think it sums up why we need ACT in these troubled times. I hope Rodney, Roger and John can find the money to run it more than once.
My thanks to my artistic partners Lance Tomuri, Mike Boekholt and Andrew Rundle-Keswick.
