Emblematic of changing political tides

In 2006 the Cameron led Conservative party turned over a new leaf and redesigned its logo to reflect a new emphasis

In 2010 Cameron declared that his would be “The greenest government ever”. By 2013 he was muttering about needing to  “get rid of this green crap”.

With the rise of UKIP and the recent White Van Man debacle over Emily Thornberry’s ill considered ‘image from Rochester’, plus the looming energy generation crisis his government has overseen, the party has decided to redecorate the tree with a union jack makeover.

Following an unfortunate incident where a Conservative election leaflet referred to UKIP MEP Tim Aker by his Turkish birth name of Timur, some wag has made this unflattering comparison using the new logo:

Oh dear.

    Perhaps they should use a large RED pound sign, with a meter alongside showing the cost of the renewables policy.

    🙂🙂

    How about two pound signs, a green one with the renewables policy cost, and a red one with Osborne’s deficit record?

  3. Graeme No.3 says:

    And a banner saying Thanks to the Conservatives you’ll never see these again.

    We could have empty champers glasses either side of the pounds, one on its side…

  5. Graeme No.3 says:

    Or the tree chained to a map of Europe?

    A Cockerel weather vane would be more appropriate. Politicians ah blowing in the wind.

    Tree huggers wrapping them selves in the flag seems to be a bad joke on the electorate. pg

    Too right PG. These college kids know neither the meaning nor value of flag nor fealty to the people.

    When I was young, in the 1950s, the older teachers stressed God and country. The newly minted “educators” stressed International Communal-ism as the path to enlightenment. Those that believed in god and country were stupid clods that were fit only to toil in the field, to be ruled by the Elite.
    The modern graduates have only heard one meme from their first taste of education. Small wonder that they are mislead so easily. But there is hope! The latest crop seem to be realizing that they are being lied to. Reality is not matching the Liberal Progressive promises. The system that we have enjoyed was created in a different time, it is now disintegrating under the weight of the Green/Liberal foolishness.
    Things will soon get so bad that the “Philosophy of Moore” will be discredited for all time. We must be ready with the wisdom of our forefathers or chaos will result and a one world dictatorship of the Elite will result. Dark ages worse then after the second Roman Empire would follow.
    Time to shout that We don’t need them! The World Wide Web will replace any need for an Elite to rule us. We can do it ourselves. pg
