What I Do

Tory family policy jumps the shark

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010


Still smarting that we’re not considered wholesome enough for a Cameron marriage tax break – my wife earns a few hundred quid too much – I was cheered a bit to see Sunder Katwala’s recent post on Next Left. It looks like we’re in good company. (more…)

Cash, Gordon?

Cash, Gordon?

I haven’t been a member of a Labour affiliated union for nearly ten years now – my current union don’t even have a political fund, let alone one that affiliates to Labour, but something really irks me about the latest Tory billboard – criticising Labour for taking union money (no, the one above is my take on it, not the original, which you can see here).

I've never voted Tory

Amidst talk of changed strategy to duck the virtual and physical graffiti that’s dogged the Tories’ election posters so far, three new billboards have been unveiled today, detailing why people might like to consider crossing the floor and voting Tory for a change. None of them have the easy-to-deface looming face of Dave, but there’s a nice strapline and design style that should give ample room for parody. are already on the case, and I’m looking forward to see how they rise to the challenge. The hashtag #ivenevervotedtory is already doing brisk business with lunchbreak surfers. Here’s my quick & dirty contribution to the fun.

Dawn Of The Dud: sinister Tory billboards return

Tory tombstone

The sinister Tory billboards are back with a vengeance, and so are their online alter-egos. The current posters are coming in for a bit of flack for attacking a Labour policy that isn’t actually a Labour policy. Still, it’s a nice scary picture, so has morphed into, with some very funny takes on the dramatic picture and the message gaffe. Here’s my own contribution to the fun (click for bigger).

Cameron’s latest CGI epic

Cameron Avatar

Thanks to Clifford for this week’s image challenge – A different take on Mr Cameron’s slightly creepy airbrushed bill board ads.

Here’s mine (click for biggie) – I reckon the Cameron illusion is all mad CGI skillz rather than airbrushing! I did get the right Cameron, right?

Anyways, you can see a bunch of other excellent attempts at this over at “Airbrushed for Change”.

The harder they Cameron

In which a young man setting out on a noble career finds that ultimately it’s easier to make living through a dishonest path than by staying true to his public. Any similarities between persons living or dead purely coincidental.

The photo they don’t want you to see…

New evidence suggests that Dave’s rude kid photo-op curse started long before we’d first thought:

balls to bullingdon!

Bloogle: See no evil, do no evil?

Tuesday, October 24th, 2006

Check it out – I’ve got a sneak preview of the latest service from everyone’s favourite search engine:


Okay, only joking, but here’s an interesting piece in the Guardian today about new media behemoth Google’s first forays into politics, sponsoring candidates in the States (so far a Republican who’s in favour of net neutrality – admittedly an endangered species) and cosying up with Dave in front of the webcam over here.

The Google name itself has already done more than money could for the Tories – adding instant modernist kudos to their conference and the webcameron adventure. This new NetPAC sounds odd though, getting its funds from Google staffers.

Wonder if it will start to open any schisms at the Googleplex, where many of the hip young things are also of a fairly lefty bent. Heaven forbid the footsoldiers could start doubting the company’s “Do no evil” motto – something they may well be doing already, given the company’s wavering stance over its China operations and censorship.

After my post on political geekery, I thought it only proper that I should put up my own homage to the WWW – so here is “Camsterdance” (wtf?):

Now, who’s for Dave Çagri “I kiss you!” – or would we get a case of the Sion Simons?
