Labour poster: epic fail?

I've got to say, although perhaps I should leave them to make their mistakes, Labour's campaign poster, designed by one of the people (or more precisely one of the cuntish, stupid people who support Labour), is surely a mistake. I look at this and think, 'hmm, nice motor, nice suit, geezer looks pretty relaxed, what's the message?', which is not the intended point at all.

The parties seem all to have realised that using the image of their opponents is safer than using images of their own leaders, due to the inevitable spoofing that will occur, and the lack of appeal all the leaders have. Nevertheless, I reckon Labour will blow a hole in their foot with this one. I don't actually know who the fictional TV character they are using is (apparently some guy from 'Ashes to Ashes'), but they should take stock of the popularity of the show 'Life on Mars', which brought on a wave of nostalgia for the good old days, when coppers knew how to deal with wrong 'uns, and didn't give a flying fuck about political correctness.

Of course, Labour needn't concern itself with winning my vote. They've more chance of raising the Titanic with a fishing rod.
