Yesterday (May 1) I wrote a short posting on the May 7th French presidential election (“Election efficiency”) and showed how campaign posters were displayed in the neighbouring village of Saint-Cybranet.
Today, I’m sorry to say, I’m providing a look at some electoral nastiness here in our quiet, peaceful, and (almost) crime-free village of Daglan. This is how our standard bearing the two candidates’ campaign posters looked this morning:
Yes, the poster for Marine Le Pen, on the right, has been completely destroyed. Now I’m not saying that I support her views (and I certainly don’t), but on the other hand I also don’t support nastiness or vandalism in politics. It just seems cheap.
If the best that your supporters can do is to destroy publicity for your opponent, it’s not saying much for you. At least, that’s what I think.
