None of the other parties have the money avaialable to counter their lies... and that is not particularly democratic, for sure.
Sure they do. Round here, the political flyers are mainly from the SP. I use them to light the fires, of course, but it still makes me smile to be living in a country where such things are actively encouraged.

Around here it's a mix, we get them from everybody.

I think most advertising I've seen is PLR (FDP for you northern types).

Nobody remembers the Local accepting adverts from that foul anti-homosexual reggae artist a few years ago?

... although on second thoughts, why would the SVP want to advertise to a bunch of English-speaking foreigners?
I do - and when the Local was alerted to the content of that artists performance the ad was withdrawn.

The other parties don't lack money, they lack ideas.

Re: UDC / SVP ad pop up

hmmm, the UDC/SVP have plenty of ideas of course- shame of the quality of such. So you are coming out now- interesting.

You don't have to receive the Coop or Migros paper if you don't want- just tell them- you've chosen to sign up to their card- so the PO has to deliver if it has your address on them, as it is no longer advertising. Excellent articles and recipes too at times

Have you ever read the inflammatory **** in the UDC/SVP magazine?!?

The SP sends you a full several pages magazine DB- never ever seen one. Care to send me a copy, I'll happily pay postage (btw I do not belong to the SP, despite what you think, lol).

Love 'em or hate 'em, they get people talking about them. That's the point. The ideas don't need to be good or practical.

Re: UDC / SVP ad pop up

Good or practical - that is one thing. Pure inflammatory racism and lies, a different story- as we live in a democracy, I have the right to object! Thanks.

Lovely sunny warm day- so leave you to it.

Oh, but Erich Hess is only against male foreigners. Thai girls in bikinis seem to be ok as immigrants...

Indeed. My point is that if I'd seen the ad, I'd have clicked away and got on with my day. The SVP are clever enough to know that there are a good chunk of opponents that will give them free publicity.

This thread is a great example - one throwaway ad has spawned a 3-day, 30-post (and counting) thread. The bland pictures of the local housewives and accountants standing for the other parties have pretty much zero publicity from their supporters, let alone their opposition.

Whatever SVP are, they're fantastic publicists.
