Schapelle Corby - Out On The Road To-Day


















Click on the image to enlarge and read. Please try this yourself, it's very, very easy . . .

Briefly, I had a very large pile of old women's magazines hanging around the house, so I placed one of these stickers in a prominent section of each of one them, plus one of these flyers - then drove around the nearby Federal electorate of Forde, and donated 30 magazines (each), to 16 doctors surgeries or hairdressers, in total (though there's hundreds more potential businesses). They were happy to have them, and it seemed an excellent way of re-cycling to me.

I also belong to my local Freecycle group, so I plan to put a request on the email list for unwanted women's magazines, which I can re-cycle in a similar way. I'm sure lots of people will be more than happy to give away their old copies and get rid of clutter.

Forde's held on a margin of 1.6% by the local member, and changed hands at the last election. 1.6% equals around 1,321 votes - and 10 times that margin equals 13,210 flyers, minus to-day's 510, equals 12,700 . . . it will be a cinch done over a respectable period of time before the next Federal election.

And old magazines in doctors surgeries and hairdressers hang round for a very, very long time . . .

Don't forget, print out the flyers in "Fast draft, black and white" for maximum economy - that way, your only expense is some A4 paper, and some black ink. I had to fiddle around for a bit to make sure they printed OK e.g. you print out so many copies of the first page to start with, then re-load them into the printer, and set it to print out so many copies of the second page on the back. The awkward bit is re-loading the first page, so the second page prints correctly on the back - but after a couple of dummy runs, it was self evident how to do it . . .
