München is in the middle of the election fever campaign for 7th June European elections and this has prompted a whole load of parties to come up with their election posters. Foremost among them is the CSU, in danger of not polling 5% of the votes nationally in Germany and hence in danger of getting no MEPs.
So what is the response of the CSU? To put up posters with the face of Bernd Posselt on them, one of their current sitting MEPs. They think that’s going to help? Posselt is one of the few MEPs ever to have a spoof fan site devoted to him and while this is sadly not available any longer the original images from it can be found here. I’ve helped the cause a bit by producing the mockup to the right, using one of the CSU’s posters on the streets of München as the basis. Click the image to see the full size mockup.
Here are a few other election posters to be seen in the city:
