Conservatives go bananas?


Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 12 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

Ignoring MediaGuardian‘s inability to use words to form proper sentences, take a look at this quote:

And controversy surrounding the party’s election slogan, “Are you thinking what I’m thinking?” surfaced when which turned out to be the catchphrase of a pair of Australian children’s TV characters called Bananas in Pyjamas.

If the fact that the Conservative slogan is the same as that of Bananas in Pyjamas is the best attack that it’s rivals can come up with right now, then they should be polling at around 98%. It’s a ridiculous (though comical) statement to make.
