Could you sum it up please. 4 or 5 lines preferably 4

PK's post was bollocks in my view as SP gives. in my opinion, every indication of having covet racist views. Therefore rather than blame the party pointing that out blame the party with the views.

It is good to stand up to and demonstrate that against unacceptable views.

@Lost Login extracted himself from the forum during the early days of the pandemic and is making up for it now, big time.

Remember TLDR lad. Short and slick does the trick.

Which one did I miss? Some actual info would be much more use than your vague whinging?

Great care should be taken in recording where and how signage is placed."

Like I said.  A simple task which is probably a fair indicator of if someone can understand complex documents and make important decisions.

Check the list you made when you out them out and cross reference against when you took them in?

I would start on the bank opposite Snugborogh but am sure I saw others yesterday but can’t remember where

 I have to admit I am at a loss why along parts of the main road into Douglas he had quite so many as I doubt that many voters went on seeing the 6th one, "You know what, having passed 5 signs in the last 200 yards and not thought about voting for David Fowler, now I have seen the 6th I will" Possibly he presumed we had the memory of a goldfish and would forget if not reminded every 10 seconds. 

I wonder if placards and posters have resulted in a single vote for anyone, ever.  Does anyone who makes the effort to either go to a polling station, or get a postal vote, stare at the ballot paper and say to themselves, "Now, which of these can I remember seeing tied on a lamppost..."

I don't really know why they bother with them.  Because everyone else does, presumably.

Is it psychological? Makes the candidate and their supporters feel there's momentum behind the candidate.

I think you're right on this account. There is a certain psychology, however on the Isle of Man, which might not apply in more built up areas of posters being out. In the likes of London, you would soon tune them out. But here... Its out of the ordinary. 

Just look how much its boiling @Ramseybois piss that I've left one out (which, I actually thought I had picked up... But there's a real chance I had intended to double back as didn't want to park on that road in busy traffic with hazards) 

I also think if you spot 100 of the other candidates it makes you feel like you're not putting in enough effort. I only put out 28, because I found them garish

If anything, they're more likely to cost votes. Not that I'm shallow or anything, but having skimmed a manifesto and thought to myself "Yes, I could probably vote for that", I have in the past actually changed my mind when presented with the gormless face of the manifesto's owner splattered across the constituency.

I had two posters in my window for candidates. A lot of people stopped to read them

Maybe they were just using them as an opportunity to peer in your windows to check out your decor?

A nearby neighbour had a poster in their window. Based solely on my opinion of that neighbour, I automatically ruled their candidate out as worthy of one of my votes.

I quite appreciate that this could work the other way, too.
