Southern Billboard Wars
Sorry for the lack of transmission - went on a road trip to Dunedin in the weekend with my friend Q. For two seasoned politicos the election hoardings provided some added interest as the road sped by. In case anyone is wondering, we stuck to the speed limit on the Canterbury Plains, as I doubt we would have seen much if we had motored like a certain motocade.
I can't remember going on a long road trip during an election campaign before - it was quite interesting to travel through the different electorates and see the state of the local billboard wars. We passed through Aoraki and Otago, two electorates likely to produce close local contests.
Will post some of my observations in the next couple of days.
