Scurrilous election poster


I'm posting this image (snapped somewhere in Willis St this lunchtime) purely to illustrate the depths to which personality politics have sunk in the run-up to the election. Some will believe that this has something to do with an unfortunate incident last month that may have involved vicious drug fiends, or perhaps a staircase.

The incident provoked a police investigation, accusations and counter-accusations, rather a lot of sniggering, and even a new verb and adjective ("to blumsky down the stairs" and "to get completely blumskied"). Of course it's all scurrilous, libellous rumour-monging, and while some may find it rather amusing, I couldn't possibly comment. After all, who could fail to be impressed by a man who owns a dog called "Winston"?

He he did see that one around. There was even one at parliament. Think it was probably the first to get taken down!

This one didn't last long either: it was gone by the end of the day.
