Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my 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 have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
I think most people have heard about this going on, but I certainly hadn’t seen the photographic evidence. Until I found this and this on ToryScum.com. And then there’s the endless fun you can have at Your own Conservatives poster, where you can make – well, I think it’s pretty obvious.
Despite all of this mocking, though, I think we have to give credit to the Tories for creating the most striking ads of any of the three major parties during this election. No-one’s talking about “We oppose / We propose”, you never hear much about Labour’s plethora of different kinds of poster (except when I’m telling you that most of them are wrong), yet “Are you thinking what we’re thinking?” has wormed its way into the national lexicon.
