Health Min­is­ter’s elec­tion signs spoofed by protesters

The Press - - Politics-News -

An ac­tivist group has taken a cheeky swipe at the health min­is­ter by erect­ing bill­boards call­ing for a men­tal health in­quiry in his North­cote elec­torate. Ac­tionS­ta­tion put up the signs af­ter Jonathan Cole­man dis­missed rec­om­men­da­tions from The Peo­ple’s Men­tal Health Re­view ear­lier in this year. The signs satirise Na­tional Party’s bill­boards and fea­ture an im­age of Cole­man with the slo­gan: ‘‘77% of Ki­wis want a men­tal health in­quiry (But not me) – Dr Jonathan Cole­man, Min­is­ter of Health’’.
