Today the Liberal Democrats have released what they hope will be a devastating new poster, featuring Ed Labour leader Ed Miliband as a banker’s lapdog.
It is quite frankly, rubbish.
Not only is it poor politics (banker bashing is, like, soooo 2009,) the poster looks horrible, like someone photoshopped it when they were bored for 5 minutes. Even if it had been designed well, I’m not sure the message will resonate.
People want solutions to their economic woes, not politicians playing blame game.
It’s a shame really, because the Fairer Tax campaign being run by the Lib Dems is an excellent one, highlighting one of the party’s greatest achievements in government. It should not be degraded by nonsense like this.
The other poster is far better. Although the design itself leaves a bit to be desired the message is exactly the type of thing the Liberal Democrats should be talking about and campaigning on.
