    Election 2014 Fever

    The T-Shirt twist!
    Itís commonly held that people from poverty stricken areas somehow gladly accept an election campaign T-Shirt with the partyís logo and face, which you can only wear for so long in practical terms is quite an insult[as you can such a T-Shirt for only so long in practice , after the election if itís still there itís serves you no purpose but to make a mockery of you! Imagine such individuals makes a mokery of your tragic community event to create awareness about their campaign and party]!
    What is really transpiring is that these T-Shirts are being worn bymembers of that political party and they may happen by your any topical event until April 2014 in their election campaigns including funerals, protest actions and other civil strife.

    They wear these T-Shirts in what is crowds of very large people. The topical issue can be as real and tragic as the funeral of toddler Zandile Mali in Diepsloot. In days preceding the funeral certain political party members did appear at such a tragic and emotional event such as a funeral wearing certain political party T-Shirts.

    It was never a case of someone who was handed such a political party T-Shirt for campaigning purposes ever attended at one these private and spiritual moments.
    So election season is inÖ

    I heard that political parties get fined if their ad boards remain up after some amount of time after the elections, do you guys know if that’s true? I know of places where the old cANCer ad boards are still up

    The legislation is in place - it just doesn't get enforced nowadays.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    It is usually a Municipal by-law, you have to seek permission to hang your boards in the first place then they have to be removed by a certain date.

    The problem I have with these boards are the people that put them up. They don’t take care and end up damaging the streetlights thus making it extremely easy for criminals to move around. It also makes it unsafe.

    I really don’t care much for the T-shirts at all really....
