No need to climb the lamp post to get them……..

I remember during an election a few years ago hearing a second hand story of a person hearing a strange noise coming from behind a wall. When they went to investigate they found a man with a hatchet gleefully chopping up Sinn Fein posters. It’s difficult to tell whether the 2007 Election has seen an increase in taking down opponents posters (electoral fraud I believe), or if candidates are just complaining about it more. It happens, always has and always will. I caught a member of another party trying to do it at a polling station myself in ’05. It’s petty but some people are just like that.

In today’s edition of Dan McGinn’s campaign diary the Newsletter reveal Derek Hussey’s solution. He is offering the posters for free after the election to anyone that desperate to have them – and he’ll sign them.

I used to write and get paid, now I read and don’t.
