I think it was inevitable after all the posters about David Cameron, that any poster produced in support of Gordon Brown was going to be subverted. This is going to be a really interesting election, as people (if they wish), will have so much more access to information, and every piece of party propaganda produced is likely to be subverted in many different ways, at very high speed… and this is just something that each political party is not going to be able to control. Cartoonists have always been able to give a a subversive message with regards to party politics, but this time the voices will be louder as all get involved! Thanks to Jas for bringing my attention to this via Twitter, and check out his recent post on the need for Government to provide funding for further development in Computer Science.
Mass Communications Academic, @MMUBS. British Home Front Propaganda posters as researched for a PhD completed 2004. In 1997, unwittingly wrote the first history of the Keep Calm and Carry On poster, which she now follows with interest.
