The campaign trail of destruction

Even before the election was announced, the Tories had been actively peddling their particular breed of populism.

They’ve been filling billboards with tabloidesque statements like, "It’s not racist to impose limits on immigration" followed by their tagline, "Are you thinking what we’re thinking?", using particularly ugly fonts, I might add.

They’re just asking to have the piss pulled out of them, really.

Enter the mighty Stuart, who has prepared a piss-pulling widget for our entertainment and pleasure. Edit the text, choose a font, alter the tagline and off you go.

I couldn’t quite match the subtlety and wit of this clever bit of japery, but this is what always goes through my mind when I see those billboards…

I'm not racist but... (what the hell are we thinking?)
