Lamp posts here are festooned with an array of posters of all shapes and sizes. And they are having an effect, even on the very young. One proud grandmother told Slugger about three year old Lucy who calls out the candidates names as she passes them: Naomi Long, Gerry Kelly, Reg Empey, and David Olderdice. “And there’s Peter Robinson – sure he’s everywhere!”
We’re starting our own collection of posters. If you have a digital camera and have spotted some of your own, send us them with a short description to me at: mick[at]gmail[dot]com! And we’ll add yours to our growing collection!!
