Has Peter Mandelson been replaced by Goebbels?


The Tory candidate for the heavily Jewish constituency of Finchley and Golders Green, Andrew Mennear, says the poster will cause offence because it is distasteful for a Jew to be associated with a pig “I am shocked the Labour Party finds it remotely clever or amusing to impose the faces of probably the two highest profile Jewish politicians on to flying pigs.” A kosher source at the Board of Deputies of British Jews says the posters “really aren’t the wisest things we’ve ever seen”.

You couldn’t make it up – another poster is said to depict Howard as a Shylock-type character hunched over a watch and chain. Please someone – email or fax the image to Guido.

UPDATE: Apparently Trevor Beattie’s ad agency TBWA, not Goebbels, is responsible for the poster and he couldn’t give a FCUK.
