The opinions of an opinionated Southlander
Campaigning is just about to go out of fashion - in fact, it's due to be banned shortly.Have you said too much? Not sure, I haven't been listening (I'm too far away). Your blog has been relatively quiet.How has your campaign gone thus far?
I was meaning that I'd not included a 'vote for me' or 'I promise to halve your rates bill' on my poster.My blog won't garner me votes, but Facebook might. My social-network guru-guy launched me into that murky atmosphere yesterday and I imagine I'm arriving on the screens of Invercargill Facebook users as we speak. I've written a letter or two to the local rag, bless their ink and newsprint hearts, and am beginning my letter-box assault today. What more can I do? Create a news-event? That could be part of my strategy. I'm on vote.co.nz, presenting my apples to the world. I guess someone visits that site, probably the other candidates.
Ah, yes, I see.It's a refreshing change from the usual unsubstantiated claims, which often seem to have been written by a random word selector. I suppose choosing the three words that are better than everyone else's three must be difficult, yet the common wisdom is that it must be done to win.
And the message you wish voters to garner is "what I offer is mostly green and a little bit red, as well as quite good for you, while I am quite blue, and a bit unconventional"? Could you not find a t-shirt that was less like the background of a National Party poster?On a vaguely related subject, is there a common ground facebook page?
Robert you are like a father to me, I will be voting for you :)
Ha! It wasn't originally taken with campaigning in mind, hence the t-shirt. That said, now all the Invercargill Natty's will give me their tick, assuming I'm in their stable (but this horse's not for turning).There is no 'Common Ground' Facebook page and I hope there never is. We're a grass-roots movement, you see - low-tech, nothing flashy about us. You've seen the first of the Harry Potter movies - the scene where all the owls are delivering letters to Harry and they're streaming down the chimney and through the letter-slot? It's like that here at 20 Thames Street, Riverton 9822. I'm receiving beautiful mail of the snail variety.
Bio - may I call you son?, your contribution to my campaign is unequale so far and I'm deeply in your debt. Already my 'likes' surpass those of any other ES councillors. Virtually, I'm the highest polling candidate at this point in time :-)
"Those in greenhouses should throw apples"?
Only if it's in the environment's best interest. You'd have to have a good heft on you though - those Peasegood Nonsuch's are substantial.
