As usual I was up at the crack of dawn yesterday to do “trade bell” deliveries. Imagine my astonishment when I noticed some “outside heavies” delivering a leaflet on my patch! How very dare they! Anyway, I nonchalantly crept up behind them to see what they were delivering. It was certainly heavy gauge card with a picture of Big Ben tower on it.
When I got home, I saw that the “outside heavies” had very kindly delivered one of their leaflets to my house. It was a single A4 piece of card saying that the entire civilised world will go into advanced meltdown if there is a hung parliament. There are pictures of it here and here. It was from the Young Britons Foundation (although the deliverers were far from young). YBF are obviously a proxy Tory agency – rather like the Political Action Committees (PACs) in the US like the Swift Boater groups. Bless them. Long may they waste early morning long car journies and heavy card on such rubbish!
