You read it here first. ACT’s new ad for the Sunday Star-Times tomorrow. Poking the borax at parties who tell it like it isn’t.
John Key is a genuinely nice guy, but I doubt I’ll be getting a Christmas card from him this year after this.
While I don’t like upsetting my friends at the Nats, I just can’t agree with someone who knows that man-made climate change is a hoax, but would rather waste billions of our dollars on a fix that won’t work, than use his public platform to explain the science.
John thinks explaining is losing. Maybe he’s right. Maybe not. But surely if you’re really ambitious for New Zealand, it’s right to try.
Rodney and Roger are made of sterner stuff, and I’m proud to try and explain their position. I hope this ad helps get ACT the traction they deserve.
If it doesn’t, it’s my fault. They approved the copy as written.
The photo of Rodney – which I really like – was by ACT Hutt South candidate and artist Lindsay Mitchell.
(I remain mystified why such a passionate and knowledgeable candidate as Lindsay is ranked only 14th. Bob Jones launched her campaign, and Bob doesn’t come out for just anybody.)
Thanks to Mike Boekholt, Lance Tomuri and Andrew Rundle-Keswick for the artwork.
