Dont 'Bin Those Political Leaflets!
« on: March 04, 2011, 04:05:04 PM »

Early days yet but I finally got around to assembling my stock of political leaflets (swindon only), scanning them and getting them onto the server.

Some might see this as political wonkery but I know that others will find it genuinely interesting or politically useful.  I'm interested in the way these leaflets give us an incontestable record of the messages candidates, councillors and MP's were self-delivering through our letterboxes at a given point in time.

I would like to make the Leaflet Library as full as possible, and I can only do that with the help of Talkswindon readers.  Over the weekend I'll expand on this a bit more, but in the meantime:

PLEASE DON'T THROW THOSE LEAFLETS AWAY YET!  :)

See you don't have my leaflet from 2010 Local and General Election.
Perhaps you could add it?

Have you emailed it to Mr Reid? Or perhaps you could post it?

Just downloaded it - interesting read.

If you're considering standing again, please do drop me a PM as I'd be happy to offer some design time for any future leaflets (if you're interested). Gratis, of course.

Thank you Karsten, your leaflet will be added on the next server upload :)
