Begging letters from Liberals

By ThisIsAName - 29 August 2012 25

liberals begging letter

The latest Liberal Party junk mail campaign has taken a curious step.

Earlier this week, I found a letter from the libs in the post.

In addition to the usual vacuous and worn out lines, I was surprised to see Zed make a desperate outright request for donations.

This went as far as including a small form, with an option to volunteer for letterbox drops. There was a certain irony to their complaints about increasing costs and asking for donations.

Has anyone else seen this sort of thing in Canberra before? This is the first time I’ve seen this sort of request, which is reminiscent of crazy televangelists & other cheap sales tactics.

“ruined the health system”

Yeah, hospitals in Canberra, they’re like Solzhenitsyn’s ‘Cancer Ward’ …

(and, being the form design pedant I am, why does it let you fill in the amount for a credit card donation in two places? Grrrrrr.)

Which taxes are they lowering?

All of them, obviously.

Zed’ll fix everything. And we’ll get free beer.

…which is so good mere voters are unable to comprehend it, so we haven’t released. Trust us though, it’s super.

Show us your policies Zed.

This. exactly right. Zeds only policy seems to be to bash Katy. the rest of the liberals are not much better.
How do they expect peeps to vote for them when they litterally have no policy in the public eye?

Yeah, well, they do that by stopping all the waste you see.

I generally throw junk mail into the recycling bin, not post it on a public forum.

That’s how political parties work – thy seek donations. Can’t say I would respond, (and I did get one of these as well), but some people may be that motivated to change governments that they might. It’s a very easy thing to file it in the recycling instead of getting over wrought about it. Personally I get more upset about junk mail from Target.
