Building A Foundation

This is Labour's latest poster campaign.

Iain Dale has said everything that needs to be said.

Couldn't be bothered to wait for the technical geeks to create another spoof poster generator, so here's the rough and ready version:

Well, Labour can never again claim it is the victim of ad hominem attacks.

This looks like one of those 'inside joke' sort of pranks that gets a laugh inside the office, but should never be allowed to escape--much less aggressively published.

Very stupid of them, and very telling.

Oh Lord how I detest Brown! If his Stalinesque hideous self-righteous face doesn't put off the voters I give up.

The man's a grotesque inhuman psychotic and the idea of the lying bastard getting any votes at all makes me ashamed to be English and want to leave the country.

Oh, for goodness' sake,

Do not vote for any of the criminal scum; they are ALL thieves.

I feel compelled to produce a poster with Isaiah 57 on it.

After spending the last few hours drinking copious amounts of beer I will probably regret posting this, but here goes anyway!

Politicians and their advisors are more concerned about presentation than substance. They are persuaded that revealing an opponents “weakness” is more important than presenting their own case. As someone professionally involved in the marketing business I find this to be a flawed strategy. The punter is more likely to be persuaded by the strength of an idea rather than ridicule of it. Wit is a powerful persuader but this is not wit.

Unfortunately the “shifting sand” metaphor is no better since it can equally be applied to the Conservatives. What the electorate craves is authenticity, not an exaggerated claim or a bogus argument but that politics is about them and their aspirations.

When politicians realise this then perhaps they can create a campaign that will capture the imagination of an electorate that is more cynical than ever before.

My goodness, they're taking a risk putting Brown's face on their posters.

Unless they really want to lose...

Smart barbs they have aplenty - the foundation crack was rather witty. Smart policies and honesty, on the other hand, are rarer than rocking horse droppings.

As for the poster upgrade, shouldn't that read sh*t and sand?

I think the "unprofessional" visual adds to the effect. Sand is, after all, not a precise building material.

I have absolutely no intention of voting Labour but I think that's quite funny.
