The Genuine Article 2 : Where ‘Tory Cuts’ is not a typo…

For political balance we had to comment on last week’s Wirral Globe wraparound following our The Genuine Article : Can you spot the difference between news headlines and political adverts?  post where we questioned the ethics of paying for ‘Advertisement Features’ that look like news stories.

This time it’s the local Labour Party that are at it (for circa £5K a pop). And needless to say what a pisspoor job they make of it. In the absence of any radical political ideas of their own they just resort to the mantra ‘ Tory Cuts’ (not a typo) which seems to be the order of the day. The front page contains 5 variations on this theme  (count ’em). Valid maybe, but bloody repetitive and lazy at the same time…

Talking of right wing the big news on the Labour front is that right out of left field (or should that be right field?) we hear that Cllr Paul Stuart is currently being promoted as the future Labour Group leader of choice of those who get a bit upset when it comes to the words ‘socialist’, ‘democracy’ and ‘Corbyn’.

We’re not complaining . With Cllr Stuart as ‘Leader’ of anything whatsoever it will be like shooting fish in a barrel when it comes to political satire…
