Crone and her signs

Now I like election billboards ( or hoardings ) and I could look at them all day every day , and secretly I do. However Victoria Crone is either ill advised or playing for effect with her billboards. Clearly a sign that says vic4mayor is a campaign billboard and clearly it breaches election rules that anyone with any understanding of local elections would have advised her against. If she’s playing for effect ( those pesky pen pushers ) it may not be on an issue that will set the world on fire.

She has managed some publicity though.

Might she have legal rights ?http://pundit.co.nz/content/the-time-is-always-right-to-do-the-right-thing. Its an interesting point made by Prof Geddis and the whole issue does need relooking at. I am always confused at how signs can’t be displayed on election day despite the number of votes being in well before then, what are the implications of this ? Perhaps Crones contribution to local politics may be to get the billboard rules changed, brilliant …but she’s still being poorly advised.
