Lobbying in the lavatory: new path for the coalition

I read that David Cameron is to allow big companies and lobbying firms to leave their message on the beds of Tories staying at the "official hotel" during their forthcoming conference for as little as £1,750 per go.

The Liberal Democrats are offering to sell "poster spots" to lobbyists in their conference lavatories - no price given.

Why stop there?

Toilet rolls carrying all the details of these companies plus their messages could be installed in the lavatories of all the Tories at the official hotel and in the Liberal Democrats' "washrooms."

This would really get their message across to a captive audience who would be sitting quietly on their own.
