Defacement of Conservative Posters

close

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

This post was published more than 13 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 13 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  • Factual information might be outdated.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...

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.

This 520th post was filed under: Election 2005.
