The Moth Woman Vigilantes Going Postal

Opinion polls continue to list the Moth Woman Vigilantes Apolitical Party as clear front runners for the September Federal Election, fuelling further dramatic upheavals within the Australian Labour Party. In Melbourne this has just culminated in the shock resignations of two key ALP Members.

With an election victory virtually assured, the Moth Woman Vigilantes have commissioned a set of Mothstralian postage stamps (see below). Their intention is to ensure that the transition to Independent Republic of Mothstralia is as seamless as possible. The MWV have received an avalanche of advance orders from philatelic societies, philately students and stamp collectors worldwide. As readers of this blog will be aware, a set of MWV Coins of the Realm has already been minted. (See Blog Post Thursday, February 2).
