14. New Labour New Danger
Conservative Party election broadcast, 1997
In the run up to the 1997 general election, the Conservative produced an infamous ‘Demon Eyes’ poster which showed Tony Blair as the Devil.
It illustrated their claim that Labour had not changed and that Blair would say anything to win power. Provoking complaints from prominent figures, including the Bishop of Oxford, the party was forced to withdraw it.
But it was still the basis of this Conservative election broadcast.
