A nasty twist on the election

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:

The Le Pen poster is ruined.

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.

    HA! GDA is child’s play on “nasty” elections vs. the good old USA

      I know, I know. And I think I deserve some sort of medal — something diplomatic, perhaps — for my decision not to make any comments on the U.S. presidential election. (Which I’m pretty sure qualified as Fake News. At least, I hope the results were fake. Were they?)
