Po­lit­i­cal spin garbage

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

DEAR Jim, War­ren and all other can­di­dates whose core­flute faces lit­ter the road­side, I wish to voice my ob­jec­tion to re­ceiv­ing no less than 18 glossy brochures in my mail­box in the last two weeks.

Surely there are suf­fi­cient other medi­ums to ad­vo­cate your poli­cies, be­tween the road­side eye­sores and to­tal sat­u­ra­tion on tele­vi­sion, print and elec­tronic me­dia you would in­deed reach all vot­ers.

This overkill ad­ver­tis­ing is sim­ply waste­ful.

There are any num­ber of is­sues in the Far North that would have been bet­ter served by the money spent on print­ing it.

Af­ter all, I imag­ine at least 80 per cent goes straight from box to bin.

My postie in­formed me that my “no junk mail” sign did not ap­ply, he is legally obliged to de­liver the flyers.

En­vi­ron­men­tal? I think not.
