That bill poster is not innocent!


What if anything, does the Tory Poster Campaign lunched earlier this month tell us? Well I suppose not a great deal in the opening shots of the general election campaign, only that the Conservative’s the natural party of Capitalism has a lot of lolly!

As in the US it’s the money that determines the way (always the same) and who will govern us for the next 4 to 5 years, and that’s democracy folks, so we are told.

For the last 30 years or so, I’ve witnessed election campaigns slide into something that’s beginning to take after the US and the way they do things, televised debates, and rallies, but now we have this new demotion as it seems; the leader the person to deliver us from all that is evil.



I remember as schoolboy posters put-up in the windows of Steelworkers homes in Scunthorpe supporting Harold Wilson back in the 60s. But the poster plastered on over 500 billboards of Cameron has been effective in ways the Tories wouldn’t like to admit too, I do suspect! They have drawn it seems, much attention and indeed ridicule and for all the obvious reasons, the vernacular I won’t go into. The internet and the cyberspace of blogs and general political comment has started to gear-up it’s intervention and much has been made of the Cameron posters, the poster has been played about with immensely, here are two of my personal favourites!
