Labour Scrap Advert : Howard As Jewish Miser

Guido is grateful to a reader from Conservative Future for the above poster. How the enterprising fellow got hold of an email from a Labour campaign manager (Fraser Kemp MP) is perhaps a matter for MI5, not Guido. But Guido is happy to give it a wider audience than Fraser might now wish. The question we want answered is – who is the author responsible for the double-money-counting-miser Howard idea? Where did they get their inspiration? I wonder…

Its not often New Labour puts its foot in it propaganda-wise but this is terrible. Guido hears that Labour are re-thinking this updating of a Goebbels-circa-1935 style campaign. So well timed, the day after Holocaust memorial day. Best they don’t run the posters in Golders Green methinks…

UPDATE: Saturday – This post and the one below have attracted a lot of comments here and coverage elsewhere, suffice to say Guido simply thinks that the Labour party poster above is supremely ill-judged, I don’t think that the flying pigs below are offensive or in fact intended as anti-semitic. If the Tories had run something like that in elections past, with say Gerald Kaufman as the character, what would have been the press reaction? Exactly.
