Elbow greasing the wheels

http://jajblog.blogspot.com/2006/06/vote.htmlCheck out these pictures of Ben Abbott hard at work being photographed scrubbing graffitti off a wall.

Abbott was the hopeful LibDem candidate in the recent Bromley by-elections (which he lost by the narrowist of margins). The first photo is from his election literature and the second from a local resident after receiving said propaganda.

I's hard to believe I know but it seems he was more interested in looking like he was making a difference that actually making a difference.

I know what you're thinking - the Great British Public would never elect such an out and out bounder. The House of Commons, like any good gentlemen's club, would never tolerate someone stupid enough to tell a lie that they could be caught out in so easily... I wonder, have any other politicians ever lied at all? Help me out on this one.

Jim Jay said...

It's a gif - lots of decent photo editor type programs will let you do it (although i doubt paintshop will)

You don't see it often because flashing pictures can be quite irritating... but it does save space!

AN said...

Andy , re lib dems. Jim Jams is involved in hanging them from lamp posts apparently. Its a fun day out by all accounts...

Jim Jay said...

Yeah, but we're raising money for rope at the moment cos we run out on our last outing.

Well at stroppyblog we can come up with quite inventive ways to eliminate people we do not like....

Lib dems from lamp posts does quite appeal. Sure we have some rope lying around.
