Follow me, to create new political party in Geneva

The political party shall support the working poor, and improve the situation on the housing market, for people with modest income.

I want to hold public speaches, as a leader, and would be glad to have people doing all the nitty gritty work, such as:
Getting permissions from the authorities, and builing up small speaker podest, etc.
Translating my speaches from English or German, into French.

The work would be volonteer work, for the working poor community in Geneva.

Some 90 years ago there was somebody from Austria trying to do something similar in Germany. Rather successfully, unfortunately....

The man was monolingual ! Due to him, I am absolutely in favour of supporting artists like painters, to allow them to continue in their field

You're not really grabbing the people's attention just yet. Maybe you could tell us what this party is about & why you are going to make a difference & why we need this new party... etc. You know those kind of things. You're plea for people to just come help you with the nitty gritty work is not very appealing.

Beside the point that his "program" is exactly what the SP has made central to their campaign and already can be seen on their posters in all train stations

I'd like to volunteer, I'll be the guy rushing to you with a creamcake and smashing it in yer face. You'll get above zero exposure with the gag.

Re: Follow me, to create new political party in Geneva

The last thing Switzerland needs is a new political party. The votation here is already diluted enough to enable one ignorant right wing party to dominate our lives. The center and left parties need more support, not competition!

I suggest Alex that you leave this Forum. This is the second stupid thread I have replied to this morning, and both were yours.

Maybe he needs a hug?

He obviously needs some attention, probably his therapist is in vacation.
