Gordon’s alive! Sep 13

So the Saatchi and Saatchi agency has been recruited to look after Labour’s advertising for the general election. Whenever that might be. <cough>

Here’s their pitch:
Not flash, just Gordon

What the BBC story doesn’t tell you*, is that they were previously turned down by the Liberal Democrats after this proposal:
Not merciless, just Ming

For some reason, the Tories – despite the success of Labour Isn’t Working in 1979 – also turned them down. Can’t imagine why:
Not anything really, just Dave

*because (let’s be clear for legal purposes) I’ve made it up

    My proposal “Not Flash, just Crash” didn’t win, then. 🙁

  2. Of course, some of us are old enough to remember when Paddy wanted us to campaign on the slogan “we’re yellow, we’ve got courage.” In retrospect, that might have been a Saatchi original.

    ROFL 😀 And of course I had to love it.
