What is it about Lewes?

I've had to travel around the country quite a lot in recent days, and even in marginal areas there has been nowhere near the number of candidate signs in windows and gardens that our town here has been blighted by.
What is it about local folk that possesses them to stick these damn things up? Is it about being seen to have supposedly trendy, right-on beliefs? That must be thrust upon others? I just can't fathom it. I cannot believe - as featured in a current Private Eye cartoon - that people walk around, see a sign saying "vote so-and-so", and decide to do so as a result.
I can only conclude that Lewes has an extraordinarily high number of posing tossers, who should exhibit a greater degree of humility when it comes to their public behaviour.

They're probably the same as you Local - they think we're interested in their absurd opinions. Exactly the reason you posted here at such length.

Whats your point? You talk about humility, I don't expect you know the meaning of the word! Do you call yourself Local to give yourself some meaning and to confirm to others that you maybe your local to the area ? You have a very parochial outlook on life!

Look, you bell-ends. Consider the point - lots of LD and Green posters in windows here mean nothing in the context of the whole country's government. Why bother polluting the environment with all the rubbish?

There you go again Local, giving us the benefit of your opinions that none of us are interested in. Why don't you put them on a poster and stick it in your window?

Poseur - sorry for the delay, but I've been watching TV.
You seem to have missed the fundamental point. This is a forum for opinions to be shared amongst those who consciously choose to visit to partake. The pointless and arrogant display of voting intentions to the masses is completely different.
I just hope all the litter will be removed promptly.
