  • I can't believe what just happened

    I thought the days of propaganda trucks blearing out political messages was left behind in the days of early-communist russia and nazi germany. Low and behold whilst sitting on my bed reading my maths book, I hear someone blurting out something via a loudspeaker. I looked out my room and saw nothing. Two minutes later a pink and yellow truck from the UK independence party comes down the road in its propaganda truck preaching its political messages lol. (Note: our local elections are on friday )

    I just can't believe this still goes on, particularly on a quiet suburban road like mine!

    We have a sticker on our mailbox to not insert unsolliciated, unaddressed snail mail. It works, but those political flyers still get forced down your throat every year.

        I've never seen anything like that before, a bit extreme. Posters through mail is about as far as politicians go in Australia.

            I never saw that in germany even though there are elections on next sunday.

            I've seen something similar in my holiday in turkey. There was a red-blue-white bus driving on the beach.
            I guess it was because the major was elected but iam not quite sure since i can't understand turkish.
            That's the end of that!

              Have to use a sticker huh? Here in the U.S. it is illegal to put anything in a mailbox unless you are an employee of the U.S. Postal Service. Doesn't mean we don't get the flyers... They just pay postage on them.

              However, locally, we only get junkmail on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and it usually simply goes in the recycle bin without a second glance.

                  We don't get anything like that. Just oodles of tv ad's that don't tell you anything about the canidate that is putting them out, just bad things about the canidate they are running agenst.

                    Yup, or they put it in the rungs of my bannister on my steps. Always for the same terrible Chinese food restaurant...

                      It is the postal delivery guy that puts in the spam - if you have a sticker, they won't.

                        hah, I forgot to mention, reading this thread instantly made me think about the midget with the broom from the movie 'o brother where art tho?'. Now if somebody did something like that I would defently vote for them lol.
