Pets vs election leaflets: There can only be one winner
It's the first day of the general election campaign – and already we can't take any more.
How things have changed since the good old days when voters – particularly those in marginal constituencies – weren't finding their letterboxes bombarded with political literature.

The problem is, not everyone is very happy about the avalanche of electioneering pamphlets they're facing over the coming weeks.

Conclusion: All election material should be swiftly removed from the doormat and placed in a special folder for future reference.
