The Lib Dems' dreadful election logo

Lib Dems steal from Labour and the Tories and end up with a muddle.

Almost no one seems to like the Lib Dems' new election logo and it's not hard to see why.

There's that strange, banana-like stripe for a start. And the slogan, the bastard offspring of the Tories' "Vote for change" and Labour's "A future fair for all", is even worse.

Paul Waugh cleverly notes that the colour scheme is almost identical to that of the Somerfield logo.

I'm all in favour of a Lab-Lib coalition in the event of a hung parliament, but could the Lib Dems please leave their design team at the door?
