UK Party Shuts Down Mail Outreach Effort After Being Sent Feces, Blood

If you set up a freepost address in the United Kingdom, it means people can send you mail and you have to pay for it. And if you’re a political party with a freepost address… you’re gonna get some pretty negative mail. And the UK Independence Party had to shut down theirs after people were sending feces and blood in the post.

Lots of people decided to take advantage of the party’s freepost address to let the UKIP know how they feel about them… at the UKIP’s expense.

Well, things got so bad that, apparently, people were sending packages with blood and human feces inside it, which led to the disbandment of the freepost address.

And this is why politicians hate regular people…
