This image was taken (but not used) for a story that ran in The Manawatu Evening Standard on 1 November 1978 “Labour promise to get nation working” and “Rowling in top form at opening”. Labour leader Bill Rowling opened his general election campaign at Palmerston North’s Opera House with a rousing speech to over 1000 supporters on Tuesday 31 October. Taxation was a key theme in his speech, stating that the best way to drive the economy was “…to leave the earnings of the people in their own pay packets so they can make the decisions as to how and where the money should be properly spent.” The Standard also reported the presence of Labour spokesperson on social welfare and family affairs Whetu Tirikatene-Smith, former MP for Palmerston North Joe Walding and Labour candidate for Manawatu Trevor de Cleene.
