After the Stuffers’ latest Jacinda-government-paid smear campaign against her opponents (see earlier) we recommended that people stop advertising with this corporate enemy of free speech and democracy, and that Kapiti people instead advertise in NZME’s Kapiti News.

That now seems to be happening locally. The Kapiti Observer, the advertising freebie owned by Ms Boucher, is now only delivered to a limited number of houses (we’ve not had one for several weeks); it used to be delivered to the Waikanae library and the Postshop, but that stopped over a month ago, and the last 3 issues were only 16 pages.

We hope that this demise happens elsewhere. Ms Boucher can’t expect her behaviour not to have consequences.
