Tories fuck up their spoof posters
Following on from our reports about people defacing Tory posters let's just see if we can get our heads around this Tory reply. Being too stupid to come up with a spoof of their own the Tories have decided to nick Labour's. They come up with a cast of immigrants, scroungers and BNP types, all of whom announce that they have never voted Labour before. OK, so they were voting Conservative? These are disenchanted Conservative voters - is that what the organisers of this campaign are saying?
Not only that but you really do need to be a political anorak to get the humour. Take the BBC effort as a case in point. You even have to enlarge the image to see the punchline and to understand it you need to believe that Auntie Beeb is a hotbed of Nu-Labourites. And give a shit.
The anti-Tory sites work so well because they play on a simple to understand theme which is that the Tories are utter shits. They are the Nasty Party that is full of nasty people who live in nasty suburbs like Smethwick. On the subject of Smethwick, if the Tories want to try humour, why don't they dig up their unofficial 1964 Smethwick election slogan: "If you want a nigger for a neighbour, vote Labour"? At least it would get more laughs than their current campaign.
Never mind a piss up in a brewery, this lot can't even organise a piss take on the web. This is all too rich for words.
