Election Spam Pain

Breaking off from my Stupid Kent diversion, you may have noticed there's an election on tomorrow.

In fact you can't have missed it if you're one of those seemingly few Thanetians who've been able to make it to your front door any time since last Christmas. The letterbox here at the old cliff top mansion has been crammed full of political junk, which I'm now going to share with you. Below are the election leaflets for every candidate in norf and sarf Fannit (click 'em to big 'em).

What's surprising to an anal, small print checker like me is the number of candidates who bang on about supporting local businesses, but who've had their leaflets printed yonks away. I mean, it's not as if we don't have printers here on our septic isle!

Take Peter Buttlips, the Lib Dem wannabe for Thanet South: 'I will put local people first.' Pamphlet printed in London E6, as was the bumf for his Thanet North colleague Laura Murphy. Dr Steve Ladyboy, the incumbent for Thanet South: 'Keep fighting for new jobs in South Thanet.' Pamphlet printed in London SE1. Conservative Laura 'Ramsgate' Sandys: 'Promoting businesses.' Pamphlet printed in Guildford, Surrey.

Anyhow, take a look for yourself. I know most of you probably couldn't give a tinker's cuss, so in true Murdoch style tomorrow I'll be telling you who to vote for!

Lib Dem leaflets aren't what they used to be.

You joined the Facebook group More Sister Assumpta. A gentleman as well as a scholar.

But can we look forward to Sister Assumpta coming on your pages ?
