Political posters, or corflutes as they are affectionately known, have been consigned to the election dustbin of history, as they were outlawed by Parliament last week.

No longer will the faces of politicians or would be politicians adorn our stobie poles or public infrastructure anymore.

Feedback on social media seems to be overwhelmingly in support of the ban.

Local Member of Parliament, Mr Tony Piccolo posted the news on his face book during the week, with over 90% of respondents stating the time had come to remove this “environmental pollution” from our community.

Mr Piccolo said he was a little bit “sad” to see the corflutes go but is philosophical about the ban.

“The parliament has decided to ban them, and it appears to have popular opinion on its side, so I will have to find new additional ways to communicate with the community at election time,” said Mr Piccolo.

In his Facebook post Mr Piccolo said “..no more climbing up ladders to erect and remove them.”

“No more mos, black teeth, horns, scars (or other unmentionable's) artistic endeavours,” said Mr Piccolo.

“No more competitions to see who had the best idea to recycle preloved corflutes.”

“No more corflutes to give to local archery clubs, kindys, and service clubs to recycle.”

“Elections won’t be the same. Political life won’t be the same. Corflute's, may you RIP,” lamented Mr Piccolo.

Mr Piccolo then asked his followers whether they “lament their passing or rejoice in their banning.”

The response was, sadly for Mr Piccolo, that local voters are rejoicing in their banning.
