Leaflets a waste of paper

BEFORE last week’s by-election, delivered by the postman, I received four leaflets all addressed to me with full name and postcode.

I did not request them, they were totally unsolicited and were from LibDems, Labour, BNP and UKIP.

What a waste of money and paper at a time when finances are supposed to be stretched.

If I did not know by now who the candidates were for the by-election, with all the information on television and the media, it would have been a bad job.
