This site is currently being redeveloped. Although it will work fine it will continue to look terrible for a while yet. Sorry!

Twenty years ago a political advert appeared on billboards around the UK which went on – allegedly – to win the election a year later for the Conservatives.


Now, the BBC and others are reporting that accountants BDO Stoy Hayward have done some research for the TUC and reckon that one in every 56 UK businesses will fail this year, a 59% rise on 2008. Further, the British Chambers of Commerce last week suggested that UK unemployment could reach 3.2 million – or just over 10% of the workforce – by the second half of next year.

I can't help wondering whether the Tories would do well to just recycle the old poster and not spend money on new advertising …
