Problems with political posters
Madam, – I was nearly decapitated by a flying election poster that came down in front of me at Hanlon’s corner this windy morning as I was cycling into work.
I do not need a poster to tell me who to vote for. No posters are necessary, and the country cannot afford this expense. When will prospective representatives lead by example? One A4 page (on recycled paper) to every household, hand-delivered (to save postal costs) by candidates, with all constituency candidates’ names on it, including their telephone numbers and e-mail addresses, would be more than enough to guide me and the rest of the electorate. Enough wastage and poster litter.
I did not rise on the tail of the Celtic Tiger. I will not fall in the recession. Waste not, want not, and let’s support the most vulnerable in our society with our “spare” time and cash. – Yours, etc, –.
