Aro Valley bondage

With bondage jokes, two-hundred jeering hippies and a water pistol trained at the back of candidates' heads, the Aro Valley election meeting is always the most entertaining, if not the most enlightening.

The Dim Post has a roundup of the meeting as raucous as the meeting itself; The Dom Post has the stuffier report, but it does have an added video.

And what exactly did happen to Bernard Darnton's billboard?

UPDATE:  Billboard's location still uncertain, but Wellington photog Matthew Plummer posted some pics of the political event here [hat tip Stephen Franks].

  1. You have to laugh. Earlier in the week No Minister was rightly lambasting Michael Cullen for meddling with the New Zealand Superannuation Fund -- insisting that the Super Fund, which is supposed to relieve the need for taxpayers to fund NZers' retirement years, must "invest" instead in "long-term infrastructure bonds," bonds whose returns will be paid for by the taxpayer.
