Driving along Barry Drive this morning, I noticed that most of the election signage for both the Greens and Labor has been destroyed, only a few Rise Up Australia Party signs were left standing. I was driving, so could not take a photo.
Now while I do believe that roadside election signage is a blot on the landscape, they are technically private property and destroying them, even if they belong to the Sheiker, is illegal.
Seeing that the signs for Danny Naliah’s merry band of nut jobs were left standing made me ponder whether this was an act of God, smiting those who would support gay marriage. Or was it a cunning plot by one of the other parties to make the ALP and greens less visible or perhaps just a random act of vandalism.
Crikey from yesterday carried the story of Labor staffer and volunteers defaced Lib candidate signs, so are we seeing similar puerile tactics emerging in the ACT?
