  1. I wear my ‘I only date girls who vote Green’ badge. I even wore it to church last week.

    I reckon Rodney got the jacket made specifically without an authorisation so that someone would complain and give him free publicity. And when nobody from another party bothered to complain, he got somebody from his own party to do it.

  2. It doesn’t matter who the complainant was & your wrong – Act Supporters love Rodney Hide…. Its only the few rare one’s who may change to another party. The Green Party endorses the wearing of ‘green sticker logo’s’ been worn by general public…..infact you hand them out on the street & encourage people to wear them. But, i bet you – you’d never wear one yourself. At least Rodneys proud enough of his party, that he’d like to wear the ‘Act’ logo. Thats Fantastic!!!!! I think thats quite funny, that he can’t wear the jacket (with logo) without autorisation tag…..infact i wish i had my suit jackets imbredded with “Act Logo”…..i’d rather wear that – than a Green Sticker saying ‘i only date boys that vote green’…..i’m sure i’d be dateless, if i decided to wear that, each day.

    Supporting the EFA was foolish,……Rodney hide intelligently (and with good integrity & standing) addressed the NZ first dishonesty. And then he gets told off for his jacket. Sounds like, someone from NZ First encouraged a ‘new recruit’ to make a silly complaint. Thats quite funny, if you can see any humor in that.

  3. Bryan, it’s a fair cop It’s humiliating, I know. But there’s no point in trying to obscure and sidetrack the discussion. A word of advice – isn’t the best kind of PR damage control admitting your mistake, telling everyone how you plan to fix it, and moving on? Even Rodney has been reported as saying he is ‘embarrassed and pissed off’ about Jacketgate. No point in trying to sidetrack the discussion away from this frankly dumbass cooked-up scheme by ACT lads with too much testosterone and pent up rage and not enough political nous.

    In fact, the ACT frat bully boys are looking pretty silly over this incident on top of your fake ads fiasco. Shouldn’t you all go back to your toga parties and food fights now and leave politics to the grown-ups?

  4. Bryan, you know full well that vote was a technical requirement to ensure that all expenditure is properly appropriated, and that the Greens’ unauthorised expenditure was in any case repaid to the Parliamentary Service by the Green Party.

    New Zealand First wasn’t prosecuted because the offence happened befiore the EFA was passed. You can hardly blame the EFA for that.

  6. I suspect you may be missing the point here Frog. The flawed law that you and your comrades introduced last December to suppress your opponents in the EB has been exposed as ludicrous once again.

    NZ First who failed to declared over $230,000 in hidden donations from lobby groups was unable to be prosecuted. Despite clear evidence that there is something very smelly going on: so smelly your own party has rule out working with NZ First post election.

    Meanwhile Rodney Hide is told “Put an authorisation tag on your jacket or we will fine you $10,000.”

    Supporting the EFA was foolish.

  7. This is so brilliant – a party that desperate for publicity that they not only have to pinch the Greens’ advert but also break the law and then complain about it themselves to get any!

  8. The point is, Hide received a warning letter from the Electoral Commission for having an ACT logo on his jacket. It is irrelevant who made the ‘complaint’.
