1.6m Muslim versus 267,000 Jewish Votes

Writing in the Times William Rees-Mogg does not give Labour the benefit of the doubt over the now abandoned advertising posters. Pointing out that Labour advertising is professionally designed, carefully crafted and has now succeeded in reminding everyone, who did not remember or know, that Howard is Jewish. With Labour having lost swathes of the Muslim vote over Iraq that might be useful information to have more widely known.

Crudely put, Muslim voters outnumber Jewish voters 6 to 1, Blair’s Iraq war turned many Muslim voters away from Labour towards Galloway’s Respect. Too cynical? New Labour are politically cynical enough to attempt to bury bad news in the rubble of New York, why wouldn’t they indulge in a bit of darkly spun subliminal advertising for demographic recapturing?

Guido still wants to know; who crafted the adverts and what was their inspiration?
