Posters worth a thousand words

As is well-known enough, I have no sense of humour to speak of. Indeed, Cllr Bob Piper contends that I am a “dour humourless git who can’t take a joke”. And he’s in the same party so I must be a right prattish killjoy.

So I’m perhaps not the best person to judge whether the Conservatives’ new foray into humorous anti-Labour posters (pictured) hits the spot, or not.

But as a self-important, pseudo-intellectual twat of a leftie analyst, I am in an excellent position to point out the following key aspect to the new campaign.

While the Labour posters posted at mydavidcameron.com tend to satirise the policies and baser motives of the main opposition political party, the first attempt at humour in this vein by the Conservatives is not a direct and politically legitimate attack on the opposition party.

Rather it is reflective of the party’s general attitude to those members of society that it considers to be ‘beneath’ them, and is redolent of a general conception, on the part of the Conservatives of the ‘feckless poor’.

This makes them unfit to govern, as they do not have the interests of a large section of society at heart.

I trust that was dour enough for you all.

Let them keep coming with this stuff I say, it reflects their prejudice nicely.

a self-important, pseudo-intellectual twat of a leftie analyst

The competition for the Liberal Conspiracy’s new name has a winner!

Go on, show us the ones about the BBC and the burglar – even though they don’t fit your narrative.

Notice that all but two of the posters on their site are uncredited to a contributor, and that, even in the two cases where there is an attribution, it is still remarkably anonymous (e.g. ‘Submission from Sheffield CF activist’). Compare that with mydavidcameron, where the poster designers generally want to be associated with their work. Tells you a lot, I think.

I have asked Tim Montgomerie on Twitter, and he has so far not volunteered any information, about which of the uncredited posters are his own handiwork, and which ones were sent in.

Paul – you are right. These ones simply articulate paleo-conservative tribal attitudes.

The problem will come when the more creative Tories DO turn their attention to the problems of the worst off. A poster making the point that every Labour government in history has left office with unemployment higher than when it came in might actually have an effect in the current climate.

Sunny, you used to tell me you were cross-posting, ya old bugger. I’ll get Roger Daltrey on you.

Gould @5: Yeah, I’ve just had a look at that ‘unemployment higher under every Labour govt. thing’ http://thoughcowardsflinch.com/2010/02/18/rebuttal-yawn/

But you’re right, it might strijke a chord, and it’ll need pithier rebuttal than i, a pseudo-intellectual leftie twat, can manage.

Flowerpower @3 and Gould @5: Yes no doubt there will be many others attacking Labour legitimately enough, but my point is that this was the first reaction of Tory opinion formers or whatever they’re called

Soho @4: Hadn’t noticed that, good point.

Tim J @3: Glad to be of service

Urm, I’m pretty sure that a whole bunch of the My David Cameron posters were about the Tories and their voters being uncaring toffs.

How’s Paul Abbott feel about Shemeless being used by the Conservatives?

Frankly, both Conservative and Labour campaigns are beneath contempt. (Can’t speek for the Lid Dems of course, as they seem to be sitting this election out.) Anybody swayed by the posters I’ve seen so far is an idiot.

Rather it is reflective of the party’s general attitude to those members of society that it considers to be ‘beneath’ them, and is redolent of a general conception, on the part of the Conservatives of the ‘feckless poor’.

It’s not even that: it’s every clichéd right-wing talking point you can think of (EU, immigration, dole cheats, ‘biased’ BBC, etc…all that’s missing is one featuring a stereotypical ‘feminist’ and a reference to ‘Harriet Harperson’). And what’s with the Bercow one? Isn’t he still (technically) a member of the Tory party? Or is there some secret death-wish that Farage will win the seat for UKIP?

Redpesto @ 9: I agree. I published the post at my place yesterday having seen only the first poster (the Paul Abbot one). It got worse, as I thought it might.

It’s not even that: it’s every clichéd right-wing talking point you can think of…

Just like the Labour ones then. They really are just mirror images.

And what’s with the Bercow one? Isn’t he still (technically) a member of the Tory party?

No.

Tim J @11:

The point is that, by and large, the Labour posters attacked politicians, however crudely. The early Tory ones have tended to be an attack on people ‘at the margins’, and not directly on the Labour party. I acknowledge this may change, but the first few posters out were quite clearly different in tone from the Labour ones.

I think they’ve hit quite a rich vein with some of these.

Using the well recognized fictional characters (for instance the sometimes loved/loathed Shameless) connects with people directly by latching to guilty pleasures people already entertain.

A viral poster featuring Vicky Pollard would have most people laughing and agreeing with the Conservative’s family policies, whatever they may be.

I think we can now bury the myth that the Right is somehow more “humourous” than the Left.

These posters lack any humour. And many expose the lack common humanity so characteristic of Tory bloggers (the immigration one is appalling).

Note how many of the posters expose the wild swivel-eyed conspiracies that the Right holds dear. I note the one on the BBC for example, and the posters whining about postal voting (echoing the pathological Repiublican lunacy about the community group ACORN in the US).

Who really is going to vote for these nerdy rightwing chumps?

Tim J – do you mean ‘No’ because he is now the Speaker, or ‘No’ simply because the Tories didn’t their choice of Speaker, or ‘No’ because Bercow doesn’t sign up to precisely the ‘clichéd right-wing talking point[s]‘ I summarised?

rumpypumpy – you mean a bit like when the Tories tried to use The Wire – and got it hopelessly wrong (See also Bush the Elder’s complaint that American families should be more like the Waltons and less like the Simpsons, to which Bart responded in the show with: ‘Yeah, we’re still waiting for the recession to end as well’. Politicans use popular culture to explain policies at their peril.)

16. Rabid Raccoon

o look another post whinging about the conservatives election campaign – I am sure that the liberal left feels really invigorated about this.

Besides which this is not an official campaign in the same was as the lefties remaking the ‘we cant go on like this I’ll cut the deficit not the NHS’ was not an offical campaign and is therefore not reflective of the viewsd of the conservative party or all of its followers. I might as well claim that a comment by Michael Meacher about re-nationalising the means of supply is indicative of labour campaining and strategy.

Finally you say “not a direct and politically legitimate attack on the opposition party”, I would argue that it is….. this is a direct attack on the socially destructive social engineering policies of the new labour movement which have completely failed to change the lives or aspirations of the long term unemployed and those from less affluent backgrounds.
The right of centre thinking is not that these people are ‘beneath’ anybody but that they should not be forever dependent on state handouts.

The early Tory ones have tended to be an attack on people ‘at the margins’, and not directly on the Labour party.

Well, there’s the shameless one you mentioned, but what others? The ones I’ve seen have been spoofs on postal voting, the impartiality of the BBC, drinking laws, debt and so on.

The Tories are, obviously, hampered by the fact that Labour don’t have the money to do any posters of their own. Well, there was one, but it was irremediably awful.

I actually reckon some of the Tory posters on that site are – for Tories – fairly funny, and make a good point if your a right-wing-inclined.

But as Paul points out, some of them are just really, really nasty in a way that the mydavidcameron ones simply weren’t.

Which, as Paul correctly points out, tells you a lot about some Tories’ mindsets.

Superb posters.

Besides which this is not an official campaign in the same was as the lefties remaking the ‘we cant go on like this I’ll cut the deficit not the NHS’ was not an offical campaign and is therefore not reflective of the viewsd of the conservative party or all of its followers.

So when Cameron has a big launch of the Tories’ latest media campaign at Battersea Power station he’s just shooting his mouth off at the party’s expense?

Tim J – do you mean ‘No’ because he is now the Speaker, or ‘No’ simply because the Tories didn’t their choice of Speaker, or ‘No’ because Bercow doesn’t sign up to precisely the ‘clichéd right-wing talking point[s]‘ I summarised?

I meant ‘no he is not (technically) a member of the Conservative Party’. He resigned membership on becoming speaker. The Bercow thing is a wider party thing anyway – I very much doubt the leadership wants Farage to win in Buckingham, but there would be quite a few cheerful faces in the party if he did.

These posters lack any humour. And many expose the lack common humanity so characteristic of Tory bloggers (the immigration one is appalling).

As PJ O’Rourke says, earnestness is just stupidity gone to college.

Tim J: The Bercow thing is a wider party thing anyway – I very much doubt the leadership wants Farage to win in Buckingham, but there would be quite a few cheerful faces in the party if he did.

Thanks for the reply – but the ‘Bercow thing’ looks more an internal party argument than one to do with Labour.

the ‘Bercow thing’ looks more an internal party argument than one to do with Labour.

Well, I guess it’s because he became Speaker thanks to Labour votes, even though he had virtually no Conservative support. But yes, talking to themselves there.

24. Earnest Ernest

Yes..they are beneath contempt but, as Paul Sagar hints..and it comes as no real surprise…in purely comedic terms, they leave the ‘liberal-left’ looking like Blue Square Premier opposition getting their arses kicked by Barcelona. Why is this, you may ask?

Well, obviously there’s always the stereotype of the hyper-earnest, museli-knitter who thinks laughing out loud is racist or discriminatory or some such shit…but mainly…and before I say this, let me assure you I’m someone who doesn’t go with the BBC is a left-wing snake pit trope…I think they go out of their way to achieve balance in their political coverage…BUT..whoever commissions all those friggin awful liberal stand-ups needs crucifying…we’ve had decades of jumped up student wankers trying to look concerned, sincere and right-on; signed up by fuckwit Jeremies, Jameses and Tristans who wouldn’t know a decent joke if it bit their flabby arses. Somehow the ‘liberal-left’ has gradually assimilated all this shite and now regards it as funny.

First you destroyed the left..then you abolished laughter…you liberals have a lot to answer for…it all went wrong the day Sadowitz got kicked off the telly..downhill ever since.

Predictable. Apparently it is only funny when one side do it (please note, I’m sure I’ve read exactly the same thread on Conservative-supporting sites about Labour supporters’ posters).

Can I point out these are satires or spoofs, not real policies, and as such they are funny. As are the MyDavidCameroon ones. If you can’t see the humour (on either side) perhaps we would be better off without you in politics; self-reverence is an annoying sin amongst politicians, whilst being able to laugh at yourself is a virtue (one of President Obama’s best attributes for example).

26. Golden Gordon

Watchman is right.

The shameless one is quite funny.
What I would say if the humour is aimed at Labour, then give it your best shot.

The immigrant one is aimed a labour and the immigrants (who can’t respond).
Reminds me of the Nazi poster showing a line up of Jewish men taking German jobs.
But we live in a different world of what is acceptable or bad taste.

The Bercow thing is a wider party thing anyway – I very much doubt the leadership wants Farage to win in Buckingham, but there would be quite a few cheerful faces in the party if he did.
It is strange that a party (UKIP) fighting for the continuation of British parliamentary traditions should oppose one in contesting the speakers seat

A fail attempt by the Tories to copy http://www.mydavidcameron.com .
Only difference is, the mydavidcameron ones drove the Tories to reconsider their whole poster campaign just because of a few people online with a bit too much spare time.

I’ll be blunt for a moment. I think it’s okay to make fun of rich people, whereas it isn’t for the disadvantaged. If I poke fun at the traditional Tory supporter, boo-hoo, I may put their back up for a bit. You know, until they buy a new 4×4 or chase a fox until they feel better. Someone earning in excess of say £50K is still in the top 0.75% richest people on the planet. If your feelings are hurt, STFU and go buy some new feelings. Mocking those less well off than you however, reeks of unchecked privilege which is a major cause of discrimination towards the lower classes and the perpetuation of inequality in society.

Making fun of poor people isn’t funny. You’re just being an arsehole.

Tom Chance:

Urm, no, they were about D-Cam being a tit.

rp:

I think they’ve hit quite a rich vein with some of these…A viral poster featuring Vicky Pollard would have most people laughing and agreeing with the Conservative’s family policies, whatever they may be.

A rich vein of awfulness? And your Vicky Pollard concept has to be a joke, right?

Rabid Raccoon:

I think you’re confusing taking the piss with whinging, an easy mistake to make.

Chairman Moo:

Are you familiar with talking loud and saying nothing?

Watchman:

I think you’re missing the point by accusing people of missing the joke, because first off, you’re presuming these things are funny (you seem to think so, that opinion is not one shared with all) and that by making spoofs somehow means you are forbidden from picking apart others spoofs. All is fair.

Daniel,

Yes the Vicky Pollard suggestion was a joke – but it would serve the Conservatives very well to add humour to the favorite images they use to reinforce their idea of ‘Boken Britain’: hoodies, rip-offs, falling standards, chancers and feral youths.

“I’ve never voted Labour before, but…., yes but, no but, yes but, no but, whateverrrr!”

JSlayer,

“I’ll be blunt for a moment. I think it’s okay to make fun of rich people, whereas it isn’t for the disadvantaged. If I poke fun at the traditional Tory supporter, boo-hoo, I may put their back up for a bit. You know, until they buy a new 4×4 or chase a fox until they feel better.

Mocking those less well off than you however, reeks of unchecked privilege which is a major cause of discrimination towards the lower classes and the perpetuation of inequality in society.”

Of course all Conservatives are rich. And all Labour supporters wear a flat cap…

In the real world however, things are a bit less simplistic. Although you do manage to simplistically state it is fine to discriminate on the basis of social class (actually illegal under equality legislation did you know?).

JSlayerUK,

So it’s one rule for the rich and another for the poor is it?

Taking the piss doesn’t go like that, everyone is fair game.

Now’s the era of equal opportunites mockery such as Little Britain, not the black and white Cleese/Barker/Corbett sketch.

33. Earnest Ernest

DHG

You like James Brown? You’ve just shot right up in my estimation…still pondlife..but no longer a bottom feeder.

Daniel,

I laughed at both the examples above if that’s what you mean. And at the MyDavidCameroon posters on the other thread. Because I find them funny (the best definition of humour is that it is personal – we can’t agree what it is because we find different things funny). And I never assumed that any side should not spoof – on the contrary I could have an enjoyable few months if this replaces the regular election campaign (the moment when both large parties turn on the Liberal Democrats ‘Winning here’ campaigns is something to look forward to). If you didn’t find some posters funny, because they were offensive in your book, fine. That’s your choice/reaction.

As to picking it apart, feel free. I have no objections, just reservations about how useful an activity it is. As with the MyDavidCameroon spoofs in reverse, it reveals more about what Conservative supporters feel about what Labour does and thinks rather than their own politics. Humour in this case is a weapon, not a window on the soul. So any conclusions are limited (and publicising your views on these posters publicises the fact there are a lot of people on benefits and there are accusations that the current government encouraged mass migration – these are issues to voters however you feel about them). This is why I think the best response is to laugh or shrug, and perhaps to do your own poster in response. Don’t try and engage with what is negative campaigning; focus on your own message (including rebuttal) instead.

35. J Alfred Prufrock

The anti-immigration poster does leave a nasty taste, akin to Peter Griffiths’ infamous slogan in the 1964 election.

The mydavidcameron spoofs probably helped the conservatives more than labour… for almost a week the poster was featured in the news, usually the unedited version was shown first, you can’t buy that kind of publicity

The policy by DC did not feature these posters which are un-official, the announcement included the catch phrase ‘I’ve never voted xy’ but not the hilarious images

The original post by paul was not taking the piss, it was out and out whinging, for example the following:

“Rather it is reflective of the party’s general attitude to those members of society that it considers to be ‘beneath’ them, and is redolent of a general conception, on the part of the Conservatives of the ‘feckless poor’.”

is not taking the piss in any way shape or form, it is just out and out whinging about the conservative election campaign.

Jslayer your views on who can laugh at who are contemptable.

rp:

Glad it was a joke, although I wish I could recall when you were really sarcastic about Sunny’s sense of humour and fire that back at you but I can’t be arsed. If you mean Vicky Pollard fits the myopic social views of some Conservatives of those living in poverty in the, it may well do. I’ll ask my dad.

Earnest Ernest/Chairman Moo/I’m So Cool/ Monkeyfish

Thankfully, what you think of me, anonymous multiple identities and all, is of no consequence.

W:

Humour is indeed personal and reflects much about the personality, tastes and beliefs of the person being humoured.

Truisms abound!

And I’m sure the political heavyweights will be supping up your advice eagerly.

Rabid Raccoon

“The mydavidcameron spoofs probably helped the conservatives more than labour… for almost a week the poster was featured in the news, usually the unedited version was shown first, you can’t buy that kind of publicity”

This myth has been taken apart elsewhere on Lib Con, file under wishful thinking and clutching at straws.

“The policy by DC did not feature these posters which are un-official, the announcement included the catch phrase ‘I’ve never voted xy’ but not the hilarious images”

I don’t know what that means.

“The original post by paul was not taking the piss, it was out and out whinging, for example the following…”

Whinging to you is just words to me, your inference and I don’t buy into it I’m afraid, so I defer to my take on it which is taking the piss out of them, which you don’t buy into.

Daniel,

“And I’m sure the political heavyweights will be supping up your advice eagerly.”

I long for the day – it should be amusing from a safe distance.

Incidentally – political heavyweights. On the assumption that Frank Bruno and Lennox Lewis have not entered the political ring, is this John Prescott, Nicholas Soames and the late Cyril Smith (modern Liberal Democrats look far too healthy)? If so, I can recommend some good restaurants…

#28

Well said. 100% with you there.

“Making fun of poor people isn’t funny. You’re just being an arsehole.”

The one with the shameless character isn’t mocking his poverty – it mocks the fact that Frank is a lazy, shiftless, idle, benefit scrounging, good for nothing, take everything but contribute nothing member of a whole new (small “n”) Labour created class of society. Now Labour’s only remaining supporters in much of their heartlands.

Nothing to do with being poor per se.

43. Rabid Raccoon

“This myth has been taken apart elsewhere on Lib Con, file under wishful thinking and clutching at straws”

Just because something was written on Libcom does not make it true, particularly given that the majority of postings here are themselves desperate wishful thinking (e.g. the campaign against rod liddle is wishful thinking at its finest).

“The policy by DC did not feature these posters which are un-official, the announcement included the catch phrase ‘I’ve never voted xy’ but not the hilarious images”

I don’t know what that means.

The posters that the paul is talking about are not official conservative posters, they are mock ups, someone else was claiming that these posters are official conservative election posters or something, just cos a conservative supporter does something doesnt make it indicative of all people who support the conservatives

Taking the piss / mocking is not the same as complaining / whinging. I saw no mocking in paul’s post just crying that the conservatives were being mean or something, that the posters made by people who are not directly affiliated with the conservative party are a cut and dry demonstration of why the conservatives are not fit to govern.

Perhaps I missed the point of the the original post, was Paul taking the piss out of all the labout twitterers for getting so upset about an unnoffical website taking the piss out of labour? see that makes much more sense.

RR:

And just because something was written by you on Libcom or anywhere else does not make it true, particularly given that the majority of your postings here are themselves desperate negative thinking (e.g. visiting a place you do not agree with and come only to attack everything).

Thanks for explaining in detail, you seem to be saying just because these were made my Tories doesn’t mean this reflects on the Tories, which is clearly nonsense and slightly irrelevant but still by making it clearer and now see the angle with which you like to attack stuff here.

You seem to struggle with the idea of opinions, you see you have an opinion and I have an opinion and they will not meet anywhere, repeating your opinion does not make it anything other than your opinion. It will not enter the realm of fact, neither will mine.

There is no definitive truth here to be unearthed.

Thanks for explaining in detail, you seem to be saying just because these were made my Tories doesn’t mean this reflects on the Tories, which is clearly nonsense and slightly irrelevant but still by making it clearer and now see the angle with which you like to attack stuff here.

Not quite. He’s saying that these posters are not official Conservative Party posters, but are instead the work of bored online people. As such, it would be ridiculous to assert that they reflected official Conservative policy on anything – any more than the Cameron spoofs represent official Labour policy.

That’s straw clutching at 44 Tim, the majority of these party political piss-takes have been the work of bored online people and both sides have adopted these things for their causes, hence ConHome loving them and people on the opposite side loving the contrary pieces.

Also, I’m at a loss where anyone accused these of being OFFICIAL CONSERVATIVE PARTY WORKINGS (TM ALL RIGHTS RESERVED) but they obviously reflect the views of Conservative voters, just as the others reflect the views of those that don’t like the Tories.

RR @44: “Perhaps I missed the point of the the original post, was Paul taking the piss out of all the labour twitterers for getting so upset about an unnoffical website taking the piss out of labour? see that makes much more sense.”

In addition to pointing out what for me and others on this thread is a fairly obvious differing target for the humour of the Labour/Tory spoofs, I was also aiming at a appropriate level of self-satirisation (“pseudo-intellectual leftie twat etc”) in order to challenge the common misconception (for example, on Dale’s blog) that lefties are in fact unable to have a laugh.

In fact if you follow the wholly self-referential Bob Piper link through, you’ll find a little story I wrote about Iain Dale which even he had a laugh at, this reinforcing my (now totally obscure) point – a point which was in any case totally subsidiary to the main point that Tories are generally nasty buggers.

But as I’ve just had to explain my subsidiary aim, I clearly failed to achieve it. Crap post, really, wasn’t it? Shall we stop now?

Rabid Tory
Finally you say “not a direct and politically legitimate attack on the opposition party”, I would argue that it is….. this is a direct attack on the socially destructive social engineering policies of the new labour movement which have completely failed to change the lives or aspirations of the long term unemployed and those from less affluent backgrounds.
The right of centre thinking is not that these people are ‘beneath’ anybody but that they should not be forever dependent on state handouts.

Was different in the eighties under your monetarist ideology.
I think Labour with programmes like Sure start are now at least trying.
Also the pictures of the immigrants at Calais, I know for rabid foaming bigot like yourself taking the piss out of a group of individuals who are victims (economic or political) and who will be there who ever wins the election is a social norm . That is a class act. Take the piss out of Labour . No problems with that but taking the piss out of victims. Well
You are a low life

@31 “Of course all Conservatives are rich. And all Labour supporters wear a flat cap…

In the real world however, things are a bit less simplistic. Although you do manage to simplistically state it is fine to discriminate on the basis of social class (actually illegal under equality legislation did you know?).”

Never said all Conservatives were rich. I said the traditional Tory supporter was rich – i.e. the kind that has been mocked in the #ivenevervotedtory posters. Nor did I say all Labour supporters were poor or wear flat caps. I don’t think it’s okay to mock disadvantaged people. You can mock Labour and Labour people, look at all the Darth Mandelson jibes or the “I’ve never voted Tory, but I do like their tax cuts for millionaires” and the Blairs – that was hilarious. I think privileged people make for acceptable targets, whereas to mock the underprivileged is tasteless. And I don’t think I said it was fine to discriminate on the basis of social class. I’m talking about the emotions behind comedy and why mocking the poor leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

@32 “JSlayerUK,

So it’s one rule for the rich and another for the poor is it?

Taking the piss doesn’t go like that, everyone is fair game.

Now’s the era of equal opportunites mockery such as Little Britain, not the black and white Cleese/Barker/Corbett sketch.”

No, it’s the same rule for everybody – check your privilege before making fun of people. This isn’t anything new, I don’t know why people seem so shocked by it. It’s the way it’s always been. Conservatives, traditionally the party of the rich and privileged, cannot mock poor people because it reeks of discrimination. Just like white people telling black jokes makes me uncomfortable, or straight people laughing about gays. Little Britain’s “Daffyd – The Only Gay In The Village” was funny because the writer/actor was gay and we were laughing with him, not at him.

And I’ll tell you something, anyone who genuinely thinks that everyone is fair game? Usually a bit of a knob.

Even though mydavidcameron seems to be wise enough to call time early on the poster satire, this hasnt stopped both parties from starting 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.

Such is the way of the Internet Tom I suppose, for good and bad.
