I make things on the web, mobile and in the actual world.

I've done lots of bits and bobs over the years, and right now I'm mostly working on this.

I enjoy speaking about things I like, most recently this. You can email me if you'd like, and I'm on twitter.

First Double Page Spread advert you see when you open the London Mayoral election 'help' pamphlet.

Helen says:

Well, yeah, democracy, freedom of speech and all that. They're a legitimate political party.

The "People Like You Voting BNP" scares me most.

it would be far worse if this wasn't allowed, really.

Alfie says:

quite, and that is the point. I think it's more that it was the first thing you see when you open the pamphlet.

This pamphlet is the most hilarious thing I've seen in ages.

Did anyone notice just how tiny the Labour logo is on Ken's page. If you blinked, you'd swear he was an independent.

Plus I loved the Christian Choice candidate, who will be "ending the (alleged) corruption at City Hall" and championing London's most vulnerable "the unborn". Heck, does anyone know just how hard it is for an unborn child to get on the property ladder in London? Pretty damn hard, I can tell you.

Alfie says:

haha!

totally, and what's up with the crazy poster family on the Christian Choice page!? What's wrong with that girls face? Is that a *smile*?

Helen says:

Impossible I'd say.

Alfie says:

oh wow, there's a typo on Ken's page that could be read to mean no bus travel for under 18's at all (not really, but it's still funny:

"...provide bus free travel for under 18's..."

It does say that they are pictured with the youngest of their children - so heck knows just how weird the older kids looked????

"we should celebrate things like st george's day instead of ramadan and eid" says local builder.

prejudice has never before been veiled so thinly!

OJ says:

...and I'm betting that local builder doesn't actually celebrate ramadan or eid.

In our Liverpool ward quotes from constituents seem to be the way to go too. Our Labour councillor has one supporting quote that says "Councillor X does my head in sometimes but he really gets things done".

It does concern me that "does my head in" is the best recommendation he could find.

Is it alphabetical? Unless there is a party starting with A, I guess the BNP would be first up.

I thought we already celebrated St George's Day. My 8 yr old son went to a special scout's celebration for it. When the Parade leader asked the assembled children what they knew about St George my son put his hand up and said 'He wasn't English.'
