Conservatives have more to offer?

Conservative ladies

Could they possibly get away with it?

Iain Dale asks can women get away with using sex in politics more than men?

Well, I offer…………yes, possibly, but on balance you’d never be able to get away with it in the UK.  The mock up above shows Conservative candidates Esther McVey (Wirral West), Joanne Cash (Westminster North), Louise Bagshawe (Corby), and Karen Allen (South Shields). OK so it’s not quite as provocative as the German poster featuring Angela Merkel and Vera Lengsfeld of the CDU, but as an alternative to the likes of Michael Gove, Eric Pickles, or Dominic Grieve, it has to be in with a shout.

Here’s the German poster which does not appear to be offending any Germans, male or female, looks like they are more used to injecting a little more fun into their politics on the continent.

The caption below reads “We have more to offer”.

This post is entirely and gratuitously sexist, but just light hearted and for fun, and if Labour or Lib-Dem bloggers would care to suggest who they have to offer, I’m sure we’d appreciate the competition.
