For anyone who’s ever delivered a leaflet

by Stephen Tall on January 28, 2007

Now here’s a petition to No. 10 with which we can all sympathise:

Delivering to the public is an important part of political engagement. We call for legislation to make it easier for voters to be engaged by requiring all letter boxes to be:
  1. Located at a clear height
  2. Easy to post through
  3. Designed to allow leaflets to be posted without destroying them
  4. Designed to protect people’s hands when posting
  5. Dog proof

In addition we call for doors to have the number clearly displayed and doorbells to be easy to find (with defunct doorbell buttons removed).

Hat-tip to Tim Roll-Pickering for highlighting this often-overlooked issue. But will the politicians listen?
