It has come to the attention of the SKWAWKBOX that a campaign of defacement of Tory campaign posters has been underway in the Colne Valley constituency. The Tory candidate, Jason McCartney, was until recently the constituency’s MP – and it appears that at least some of his constituents were not enamoured of his performance.
Perhaps quite a few of his constituents, judging by the huge crowds of people who turned out there recently to greet Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
.The amendments to the Tory election posters appear to have been the subject of considerable care in colour matching and the scaling of images – and to have been done with the intention of ‘dropping [what their creator considers] a truth-bomb’ on voters:
This campaign appears to be a variant of the ‘strong and stable my arse’ posters that have been springing up all over London (and elsewhere?):
But of course, the SKWAWKBOX would never condone vandalism of the Tory party’s campaign materials, even if many would consider it valid comment and that the mere placement of a Tory poster in a street is tantamount to an act of vandalism.
We would certainly not recommend that anyone else do the same in their constituency, although of course any images of similar instances would be of journalistic interest.
Absolutely not. Doing such things might cause the phenomenon to spread. And we wouldn’t want that.
