Airbrushed Cameron to eclipse dog-whistling Howard?

While Scrapbook doesn’t share the class-war sympathies of the angry young man/woman expressed above, the majority of Cameron poster sites this blogger is familiar with now have graffiti on them. With an online assault led by mydavidcameron.com now penetrating the mainstream with 33 pages of spoofs on MumsNet, has this early-doors ad spend eclipsed Are you thinking what we’re thinking? as the most ridiculed poster in recent political history?

Nice touch with the mud!

    I cannot comprehend the arguments by some people that this had become a PR success. Sure, there are 80000 posters, but they all unify on one theme – trying to stop Cameron get into power. I have my own concerns about how somebody can be so narcisstic as to front his poster campaign with his own image. It smacks of contempt, and, even worse, treating the public as stupid. Not Steve Hilton’s finest hour.

    Peter Bone: Unfortunately, one of the constituencies that plans to count on Friday is Wellingborough. Could my hon. Friend recommend to the Speaker’s Committee that the law be changed, so that counts have to be made on a Thursday unless there are exceptional circumstances and tin-pot, upstart little town clerks cannot change things?

    Gary Streeter: I wish my hon. Friend would say what he really feels!

    Nice to know just what Peter Bone feels about his constituents!

    What with his dubious expenses claims; £400 for three days food, second home allowance for a house in Westcliff-on-Sea, etc. etc. etc. (check it out); his paper on abolishing the NHS, and his paper on why he should be paid over £286,000……….he is not endearing himself to anyone in Wellingborough.

    F off back to eton is perhaps a bit to crass to be biting, i think it might turn people off. The “yo plebs, we is all in dis together” poster, in my opinion, hits the mark pretty well :) My david cameron have said they wont be satirising the next tory poster, knowing its had its day. Still, this hasnt the tories from making their own p-poor fake poster sites. What will be next? The posters have already been turned into a 3d game (http://www.politicalgaming.com) and other copy sites are springing up.
