Campaign sabotage on caravan
For Immediate Release
Thursday, July 29, 1999
National’s candidate in the Tuki Tuki electorate (Hastings and Central Hawke’s Bay) has been sabotaged by an attack on his campaign caravan.
“The caravan was rolled but my campaign is still on track” said National’s candidate Larry White. “The caravan is my mobile HQ I left it parked overnight on a busy roundabout just south of Hastings. It got rolled during the night. The caravan is pretty heavy and it would have taken a few people to push it over.”
Mr White was not prepared to speculate what forces were behind the sabotage. “Perhaps they were Australians, unhappy about the rugby game.”
