Laugh along at the David Cameron posters
Defacing political posters has a fine and honourable tradition behind it so it's good to see that David Cameron's latest effort is coming in for the treatment. . .
That said, your friendly old Exile detects the black hand of a Nu-Labour strategist behind the internet based campaign that encourages people to go to work on the Cameron poster and then submit their work to internet sites for appraisal by the viewers. MyDavidCameron.com has stopped taking submissions but MoneyMad.org is still going strong and they even provide you with a template to work with.
This is all rather new for British politics, and shows that Nu-Labour still has a clearer understanding of electronic politics than the Tories have. It could be that the impending cataclysm has concentrated minds wonderfully, but the way that it has taken off shows that a lot of people find the idea of David Cameron in 10 Downing Street risible.
That should be enough to give any Tory strategist the willies.
