Is Cameron the 13th Duke of Wybourne?

But after further manual brushing by Hackney graffiti artist, there is a distinct similarity between David Cameron and the 13th Duke of Wybourne.

Brand Republic blogger, Gordon Macmillan, comes to the defence of the Labour party today after Guido Fawkes criticised Labour’s decision to promote “Airbrushed for Change” pictures.

But after some manual brushing by a Hackney graffiti artist – noted by Macmillan – Left Foot Forward notices a distinct similarity between the Tory leader and Fast Show character the 13th Duke of Wybourne.

Macmillan writes:

Tory blogger Guido Fawkes in rushing to label Labour’s move [stealing from the internet], which is a first, as such seemingly ignores several quite obvious points:

A) It’s a viral campaign and doh that’s the point. It is why Clifford Singer who created it made the template freely available (take a look at the new spoofs that have been added to Mydavidcameron.com) so that others could spoof away – and that they have.

B) This is General Election 2.0 (10) and that’s what this campaign is going to be all about. It’s innovation and change and breaking away from the staid norm.

Guido Fawkes says Labour’s campaign team is devoid of original ideas. I’d say it was quite the opposite.

Guido, Unity of Liberal Conspiracy, and Beau Bo D’Or have been involved in a back and forth over whether the poster on the Labour party website has been further airbrushed.

    Was there a LFF field trip to Hackney?

    Cameron, at four in the morning? In a girls domitory.. Bingo.

    Just about the only thing that might swing the election back your way.

    Labour are absolutely haemorrhaging support in my constituency – a previous Labour stronghold. If people like you are the future it’s not hard to see why.

    Get a life, get some policies, try some self-analysis and stop all this ‘The Tories are evil’ crap. You’ve been in power for 13 years.

    Gordon Brown is the most dreadful Prime Minister we have had. Yes, that’s an opinion. But it is an opinion shared by large swathes of the population. He had 10 years to plan for office, and what did he plan?

    Give me a policy. Go on… What has he come up with? How has he changed Britain for the better? How has he instituted his ‘values’ and ‘presbyterian morals’ on the expectant public?

    He is an arrogant, cloth-eared and self-centred bully. Interested in power for power’s sake. He exercises the intimidatory and rough-house tactics of the unions and is bolstered by his placemen. They have emasculated the party and intellectually vacuous followers like you fall for it. Rather than thinking for yourselves and asking the pertinent questions of the “democratically” elected leaders of your “people’s” party you choose to stay mute, mindlessly falling into line under the Brownite fear that if you don’t, the Tories will win.

    If you spent more time looking outward rather than joining in these pathetic attacks on the Tories you may have a chance in 2015.

    But then again, the amount of self-loathing, small-mindedness and envy that underpins thinking on the left I guess that is asking too much.

    Perhaps you could get McBride back on board and brainstorm a progressive policy about George Osborne’s wife.

    It is sad to say it, but the Labour party has become a laughing stock.

    Positive, outward thinkers like Jon Cruddas must feel physically ill. Partly because of what has happened to his party and partly because his popularity probably means Brown’s people have a file on him, ready to destroy his reputation.

    Bring on the election.

    Will – As an ex Labour voter now (It’s obvious the party is too stupid and gutless to get rid of Brown) I have to say this may be funny to some people but serves only to promote Cameron. It’s about as funny as “The Now Show” on Radio 4.

    At present you (the left I mean) are still being reactive (I mentioned you’d do that before Christmas) and seem to be devoid of a single original idea requiring the re-election of Labour to implement it.

    You will not secure a Labour victory by constantly running down Cameron – what do you stand for Will Straw? Why should we vote Labour?

    And please don’t direct me to http://www.leftfootforward.org/about/ because some of the people posting on this blog are frankly delusional in their postings and will just reinforce the idea that Labour are unfit to govern at present.

    Question Time last night with Peter Hain said it all – that man was so useless when up against a mediocre chairman and tabloid journalist he has no business being in government.

    Why aren’t you “progressives” screaming at Westminster for Brown to appear at the Chilcot enquiry and grow some ball instead of sitting around waiting for the end?
