I know I said last month that I’d vote for them, but… I was only joking! Now I receive this press release from the Swiss Anti-PowerPoint-Party:
The international Anti-PowerPoint-movement is admitted to the Swiss national election in October
The APPP sees itself as the advocate of approximately 250 million citizens worldwide, who, every month, are obliged to be present during boring presentations.
Instead of the 400 necessary signatures, the APPP over-fulfilled the conditions for admission to the election with 805 signatures and thus will officially participate in the Swiss elections on October 23.
If 3% of the electorate will vote for the party, for the first time in history a deputy of the Anti-PowerPoint-Party will be sitting in a European national parliament. The frontrunner Matthias Poehm has been a public speaking trainer for 14 years and is a successful author.
Let this be a lesson to Clegg and his like with their barmy petitions.
