Cross the Tories with the Saatchis . . . and the poster spoofs begin

Photoshop has its wicked way with the revamped Conservative advertising campaign.

By Samira Shackle

It may have been only 24 hours since the latest Tory poster was unveiled, but has that held back the flood of spoofs? Well, what do you think?

They play a bit fast and loose with the typeface, but it’s the message that counts, and I think you’ll agree they’re pretty witty.

MyDavidCameron.com has started to pull together some of the spoofs, complete with tidied-up Photoshopping.

Here are some of our favourites so far, many of them found on the comment thread for my colleague Jon Bernstein’s post yesterday.
