From Hope To Dope

The Independent On Sunday is running a list of possible political posters made up by various ad agencies. Some of them are very funny. My favourite being one based on Obama's 2008 "Hope" poster...

As funny as the Independent posters are, they are all negative. Sadly, this is probably an accurate sign of things to come but I hope not. The contrast between a positive and negative message in the Hope/Dope posters above is certainly stark. At the General Election it would be great if the parties could focus more on why we should vote for them rather than why we shouldn't vote for their opponents.

The Independent's posters remind me of my favourite Economist front cover lampooning Brown's pathetic class war strategy to regain Labour's core vote. A strategy that seems to be splitting the cabinet
