All you need is a ladder, a pair of pliers & some courage. There are still
some PG posters nailed about 3 metres up on telegraph poles in his
electorate. This has been a contentious issue on Sydney talkback radio, as
it is illegal to display such posters after an election. 

The right wing talkback hosts are having a field day with this, claiming
that PG should practice the Greenie policies he preaches & remove the
"offensive" posters immediately. The recent wet weather is being blamed for
the delay in removing the posters.

The irony is that the PG's Liberal opponent has just as many of his posters
still up as well.

I guess you could try his electoral office - they may have some left over ?

metres high
